“Good food and location”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

They have good food and is well located next to a boat docking area. View is pretty. Alligator tail was good. Burgers are large and well made. They also have a pizza menu that you have to ask for. Food quantity is a lot so better to go hungry. within walking distance from a good touristic shopping area.

Thank you for coming to Matanzas! Our "Best Pizza on the Beach" we offer on our Upper Deck. We do not openly sell our pizza downstairs due to volume limitations but will gladly offer it if you ask. Hope to see you soon. ~Glen

“Dolphins galour”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

What a great place. Go upstairs for the best view and service. Favorite place for locals who enjoy being recognized and what a great view of the bay and canal.

“dinner”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We have recently relocated to Fort Myers, so I guess we are locals. We dined there off season and the food was very good but the service better! We will definitely be back, but off season as we feel the tourist should have a chance..

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was very nice. We were seated at a table looking directly on the water. The view was beautiful. Our waitress Debbie was very good and made sure we had everything we needed. She brought our son a carafe of soda. He loved that he could serve himself more soda and it saved the waitress time! The meal was delicious and plentiful. I would highly recommend this spot.
