Just finished my dinner and started on this review. Wife and I both had the snow crab dinner (4 clusters per order) and it was quite good for the money. Keep in mind, you're on South Beach Miami, you're gonna pay for the view and the cost of rent in addition to the cost of the meal. So don't expect... More

Just keep walking....I should have listened to the staff at my hotel, this place is just a tourist trap. Very noisy from outside fridges, very average service from a waitress who really couldn't be bothered and very ordinary food. Crab was dry and tasteless, in fact it was hardly worth the effort cracking open the shell. Word must be getting... More

First time to Miami, wanted seafood, manager at our hotel told us NOT to eat on Ocean Dr even though our hotel was on Ocean Dr. He said they were for the young tourists, not quality dining. Unfortunately we did not heed his advice as we wanted somewhere we could walk to. Big mistake, lobster and scallops were tough, server... More

Tasty affordable food on Ocean! I had the ribeye which was delicious! My hubby had Shrimp, which was good at first but the seasoning was just a tid bit overkill. Our waiter was very kind and knowledgeable. We will definitely come here again! Bless the man that cooked my steak! fabulous!

Stone Crabs + corn on the cob dusted with parm = simple deliciousness. Somewhat pricey for outdoor dining on Ocean Drive, but stone crabs are not available every day😊 enjoy while you can!
