“Wonderful view”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Atmosphere with the view, pier right out on the water, people fishing, lots of pelicans and other seabirds, saw manatees, wonderful. Food ranged from OK to very good. We were there for lunch. Coconut shrimp appetizer was good for the shrimp, but a very so-so mango dipping sauce. Onion rings were good. Grouper bites special was pronounced excellent by our grouper "expert"! Clam chowder was also said to be good. Would go there again if for nothing else but that view.

“What a view”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Two visits here and we had grouper sandwiches, (delicious) grouper mango (also delicious) and seared tuna (rave reviews all around)
The view is incredible and it is great fun to have a cocktail before dinner and talk to the fisherman.
The bartender (I think he went by "Uncle Bill") tried to ruin our experience but was unsuccessful.

“This is worth going to for the experience”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

The food was about what you'd expect. I went there for the experience and I think it was worth it due to that. I had a good time

“It was good”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

So, it's not the fanciest place to eat but if you like pretty good fish sandwiches and fries and you like to be directly on the pier and you don't mind watching the occasional manatee swim by you can't miss here.
The staff was great and we had a good time here.
But we really loved the view
