“Alright Food, Good Location”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Ate here first afternoon we arrived, while waiting for condo to be ready. The food was ok, not a ton of flavor and the fish wasn't all that great. Good location though and nice way to begin the week.

“Frequent visitor and a Local, but this place disappoints so frequently ....”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Location, location, location ...............

Almost perfect - it overlooks the Inter-Coastal, Morgan Creek Marina with its assortment of Sailies, Yachts, Swanky Gin-Palaces, Skiffs etc and a fabulous array of expert and Buffoon boaters. This a great people watching spot, as well as observation deck for boating cock-ups. Sunsets down the Inter-Coastal can be superb.

However, .............

Food - very variable and highly Chef dependent (it appears).

Service - also variable.

Availability of cold beer (Draught anyway) - none for months.

Upstairs is good for the View (Sunset), but one has to accept plastic cups and that frying food as the pervasive smell and noise.

Result - we use it occasionally for Sundowners etc, but little more.

CLOSED - Mondays.

So easy to drop in for a drink or meal. The live music each night is always pretty good and we love the view over the water.
Would normally score higher but last night we took our nephews to dinner and for the most part it was good.
Started with some appetizers and a bottle of Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay. For apps we had scallops, Korean taco, calamari. All were outstanding. Dinner was salmon low-country, shrimp & grits, clam linguini, and the 8oz filet special.
The clam linguini was ok, and the steak was ordered medium and it came out well done. The shrimp and grits and salmon were fantastic.
Only issue I had was the fact that my steak was over cooked and when I told waitress, she took it back but they still charged me 50% of the cost of the steak ... Only thing I can figure was fact that I ate some if the greens that came with it...That was strange. I didn't say anything and maybe that is my fault...however you'd think they would remove cost of it since it was wrong and wasn't eaten. I'll try not to hold this against them but it was a big party foul.

“Great early dinner before an Eco Tour boat ride”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We ate on the upper deck with a fabulous view of the marina and surrounding waterway. It was a bit hot but everyone had great food and good service. I would have liked trying the inside service in the dining room but we ran out of time on the island. It had been recommended to me by a local as his favorite place to eat on the island.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Great food and wonderful service. A beautiful view and live music outside. Two different eating areas with two different menus ranging from very reasonable to more expensive.
