“Awesome location and view!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We sat by the dock, and enjoyed the view and experience! Yes, it was pricey, but so was every other seafood restaurant we encountered in this area. I don't mind paying a little more if the place has a view like this. Some places we ate in area were overpriced and had no view or atmosphere. We had tasty po'boys and drinks. Watched two guys dressing fish on pier in front of us and then an amazing sunset. Service was a little slow, but it was dinner time and they were very busy. We were so entertained by our view that the wait was not a problem! After dinner, we enjoyed a pleasant stroll along the docks behind restaurant.

“Can you say over-priced?”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

For what we spent at this place, we could have stayed at the Ritz for a night. $8.99 for a kid's meal, really (not to mention the $7.99 virgin Pina Coladas)!!! The view is nice but the smell of fish being filleted and gutted on the docks will ruin that. This isn't Hawaii and shame on the owner for gouging the public. Karma.

“Good seafood lunch”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

A good place to have lunch in the Port St Joe area. Food quality is good and the view is awesome, but service is a little slow, prices are a little steep and servings are pretty small. Not as big of a deal at lunch but you really see the difference at dinner. Also, they do not like sharing as they have a $4 charge for sharing plates.

“Overpriced food and drinks, slow service”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We were just the two of us and waited over 45 minutes for our lunch which was a simple fish taco and the fish and chips special of the day. Another table of four that came in 15 minutes after us were already half way through their meal when we finally gave up, went up to pay for our drinks, and decided to find a restaurant that cared. The excuse was that a fish taco takes longer to make. Huh??? How long does it take to make a taco?? Beware of the overpriced wine. Table tents displayed on all tables showed a price for a glass of grocery store variety of Sauvignon Blanc was 8.00. They charged us 9.50 and would not reduce it. "The manager has not had time to replace the table tents yet" was that excuse. So why did they not simply removed the table tents? Then they gave us a pen to sign the bill, and it was out of ink. Figures.....
Will never go here again.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for lunch, and were impressed by how accommodating the staff and kitchen were to our daughter-in-law, who has celiac disease. They explained which items she could eat, and how they would prepare it. They even explained the ingredients in all their sauces! It was a great spot to view the bay, and enjoy a tasty fish lunch. We definitely would recommend this restaurant.
