    Margaritas are big and gimmicky and too sweet.

    Saturday night at a bar with no limes ....really??

    Decent Bloody Mary (2 for 13) not best deal. Pancakes were fine, scrambled eggs over cooked, sourdough toast tasty.

    Brian Donnellan · February 16, 2014
  • Don J.

    Whole red snapper was excellent.

    Don Jhonson · September 23, 2013

    Food was a B..not much taste or seasoning, the calamari was weak with no seasoning. Good spot to chill beachside and hear live music at night

    Monty Simmons · May 28, 2013
  • Erica P.

    Food was great! Calamari and Jumbo shrimp a bit spicy. Florida Grouper VERY good, so was Spaghetti & Clams.

    Ready to start a 4 day wknd!! Love their entertainment at this place!! The food is a little pricey, but someone gotta pay for it + the ocean view...great atmosphere!!! :)

    Terrible food! Awful service!!! Do not come over priced!!!

    Kristin Lavery · April 29, 2013
  • Zach J.

    Forget the 2-4-1 Mamosa's. The 'special' price is somewhere around $12 - definitely NOT a bargain. The food was typical of any diner, up to par with a Denny's. AVOID (period).

    Zach Johnson · April 21, 2013
  • Dustin H.

    Wasn't the best place undercooked the Calamari. And the coconut shrimp was hard. Also refills took forever.

    Dustin Harper · April 13, 2013
  • Paula S.

    Love this place and go their often. Alex Fox usually plays guitar and sings here, so do his sons. go to the restaurants website to find out when they play. lots of fun.

    The manager is very kind and the wait staff is very friendly. However for the guys when you go to the bathroom don't forget to top the attendant or he'll get mighty cross lol.

    2 for 1 Marg is $18. Also gratuity is included in the bill automatically.

    Food is mediocre at best and overpriced. View is great!

    Adam · October 1, 2012
  • Anna B.

    Try Calamari as your starter! Love it here! :)

    Anna Bondareva · September 20, 2012
  • Wayne

    Food was OK. Expensive. Tip is included. That will sneak up on you. It did us! Probably would not go back. Salad, shrimp scampi, calamari, 2 drinks = $82

    Wayne · August 18, 2012

    Entertainment is great. Food sucks.

    Mike Puck · March 23, 2012
  • Jordan A.

    flat Sprite, rum, lime slices, and 2 mint leaves doesn't necessarily make a Mojito.

    Food is awful, don't waste the calories...

    Went on Sunday (Christmas), sat at bar & had 2 for 1 Mojitos. Yum & plenty of alcohol. Steamed mussels, meatball, shrimp & carpaccio were delish! Awesome live acoustic singer as well...

    Amazing monster margaritas! I recommend raspberry :-)

    Brandi Lee Hardy · October 13, 2011
  • Kevin K.

    Don't bother. Waited 20+ minutes for 2 eggs over easy. Wasn't even crowded. Never came to table to refill water. Waste of time.

    With local acts playing on the indoor and outdoor stages, this large, tasteful bar and restaurant spills it funky vibe onto the A1A strip.

  • Lawrence D.

    Bypass this one! 2 pina coladas cost $36. Seems the 2 for 1 is only good at the bar, but they dont tell you. go 2 doors down and get 2 for $18 and they have alcohol in them! food good, but not THAT go

    Lawrence Dunbar · May 26, 2011

    Drinks are watered down :( get a beer.

    Tania Fernandez · May 22, 2011

    Try the Penne Ala Vodka with a Bloody Mary. The two seem to go well together.

    Greg Bromberg · May 9, 2011
