I thought this might be a decent average pub -bar- restaurant place to start visiting.
One trip was enough.
We had four meals and each one was pretty bad. Dried out, overcooked, flavorless and greasy.
Hard to believe you could mess up prime rib, baby back ribs, mahi and coconut shrimp all in one order but they did.
Wait service was not great either. Learned my lesson...
Duffy's and even Ale House is far superior for similar menus, pricing.

This is not the first time I've been to this location, but it is the least successful visit. Because the atmosphere is so good for watching a game or having a casual meal or drink with friends, I keep thinking that my memory is wrong---the food can't be THAT bad. I ordered grilled talapia with tots and raspberry iced tea. The tea was good (not too sweet) and the tots were very good (but I'm guessing that the restaurant merely tried up a preformed and frozen tot which is hard to mess up). It was the fish that gave me pause. The menu said "grilled" and it came out breaded, but not crisp and was swimming in something greasy (I hope it was butter, but not sure). The fish itself was cooked for the right amount of time and if it hadn't had the breading on it, just the lemon wedges would have been enough.

In addition, I ordered food to go--smoked fish dip and buffalo shrimp. I didn't realize until I got home that the buffalo shrimp were the top box of the bag and had leaked out of the styrofoam container and into some of the chips for the fish dip.

In the past, I've ordered fried fish or shrimp and salads and they have been good, but not great. It is a fine place to go for a drink and for bar food, but I wouldn't get too adventurous gastronimically (shouldn't even use that word for this place, I guess).

Nice sports bar that is kinda hidden, especially with the hustle and bustle of the Sawgrass Outlet Malls. The menu is a mix of seafood and your normal sports bar items, I really like their chicken wings. The bar is your average bar selection wise. The place gets really hoppin' more towards the late night hours or before/after a hockey game at the near by arena. Several pool tables and dart boards towards the back for entertainment along with televisions through out the place. There is nice outdoor seating that is somewhat private with how far the tables are apart and with them being well landscaped. The indoor seating is nice as well, especially if you're near the huge fish tank, though it always seems to be cool inside. Overall this is your typical sports bar if that is what you're looking for.

This is a great place for locals - drink specials all day and everyday- food specials every day as well - bartenders are friendly and accomodating- jukebox is one of the best in the area- only negative - smoking allowed outside and frequently doors are left open - overall a nice stop near sawgrass malls - kind of hidden- after midnight the crowde tends to get younger (college age) but all in all will work on occasion-great ribs!
