Great service - food was average. We sat in the bar area had to leave due to too many people smoking. Next time I will sit at a non smoking area at the tables.

We were able to get a table with a 15-minute wait during a crowded time. We loved dining outdoors and listening to the live music. Food was great and service was prompt! We highly recommend the crab cake appetizer!

I had the Grouper...a Florida must. It was average. Service was average to poor. Nice outdoor seating area and live music. Near the popular Times Square area. Sunset view is obscured by the pier.

Food is great. Some things are over priced for the amount of food you get. View is great, right along the beach. A restaurant worth stopping by and eating at on your first. Go back every time we travel there.

Food was surprisingly really good. Can come in beach attire. Staff was efficient and friendly. Mahi Mahi was great! Enjoyed the live music. Didn't enjoy the people smoking- can smoke at bar and at all the tables...

Located in the water, next to the pier, the location is great. The food and service were average. Fun atmosphere. A good place to have a drink by the water.

Awesome food. Large selection to choose from. Sit outside and watch the sunbathers, swimmers, parasailers, etc.
