Excellent! We came here between lunch and dinner so there was no wait for a table. I can understand why this place is so popular as you are eating out over the blue water. The lower level has a bar and the upper (small) level is the restaurant. The food was excellent and the seafood gumbo was so hearty you... More

Unfortunately this place has become so popular it's hard to eat lunch here unless you come early. The best New England Clam chowder I have ever had- and I grew up in New England!

Do it. Casual luncheon over looking the very blue water. Many were fishing on lower dock. The food was very good. It was a great ride just getting there.

We visited this little out of the way place on Valentines Day. Casual atmosphere out on the pier. I enjoyed the coconut crusted Mahi Mahi; served with baked potato and grilled vegetables. It was delicious and the service was friendly and attentive.

Lots of locals recommended this pier cafe. It's small and HOT. We waited a long time for average food.

We had dinner here twice on our stay. Out of the handful of dinner restaurants we tried they had the best seafood. Always order from the white board when you first come up to deck. Saw dolphins here as well so that earned a special place in our hearts. Always had a good wait but is a nice place to... More

Good food, good prices, good location. Always a bit of a wait for a table, but you can get a drink at the bar and watch the fishermen.

This is a combo fishing pier and restaurant. The food is very good and reasonably priced. Don't leave without trying the Key Lime pie. I had the spicy pecan wahoo and it was cooked perfectly and tasted great.

I've been going to the rod N reel since 1977. It was always a pleasure to frequent the pier until Dave started managing the restaurant. He is mean and disrespectful to all the employees. Not only that, we had a party of four and got the special's for the day. The tripletail sandwich and fried grouper fingers. The tripletail (if... More
