This is a favorite of ours out on Pine Island. Particularly fun this time of year. I think they take an entire day to decorate the place. Great food, great people, and great view.

We visited just a bit before "the season" gets going with huge influx of tourists. The atmosphere is warm and friendly with staff well trained and efficient. Food is good; the usual seafood fare with lots of options for non-fish eaters. It's a little expensive, but portions are large. We all took some stuff home. We recommend you try this... More

This is a very affordable, diverse restaurant located right on the water in Matlacha. The service was timely and caring. We ordered Fish Tacos and a Blackened Fish Sandwich as well as 2 glasses of homemade Sangria. The fish tacos were some of the very best that we have ever had. The fish sandwich was perfectly balanced between the blackening... More

This establishment is located on Pine Island overlooking the water, as many restaurants in the area. They have a varied menu with good service. (We had a trainee accompanying the regular waitress which made for a lively and fun service experience!) The food is very good. We had lunch at 12pm on a Sunday. There was no wait for a... More

A great menu, my wife had pork chops and mashed potato's, she is not a big eater so the normal sized portion was very welcoming, she ate the lot. I had tilapia, scallops and shrimps, cooked very well and presented well. Staff we responsive to our needs, (even the wobbly table was fixed quickly) and the atmosphere, as it was... More

This is a great local restaurant run by a local family who care about your experience with them. The view is beautiful and the food even better. Try the conch it's delicious. Don't leave with the key lime pie in your belly! Enjoy the experience!

This was our first time eating at the Sandy Hook Fish and Rib House. The food was excellent! We had calamari as a starter that was excellent. Pecan encrusted salmon, ribs and scampi were all very good. We'll go back for sure.

The Hubster loves surly waitresses! He has a lot of fun with them and it usually makes for an entertaining dinner!

Thank you and the "Hubster" for such great taste! (and review)! Loved the humor in it. My staff and I are like family and love having tables we can pick on and get it right back in return. Not sure which one of "those" tables you are, but make sure to ask for Nicole or Donna when you come in.... More
