They have rebuilt to almost exactly what I remember from our last visit in 2011. The bar is my favorite. Great spot for a cocktail on the way home from the beach. Had the fish tacos - don't recall if it was Mahi or Grouper....More

Hi Jan, I really don't know anything about the Lobster served on Monday. My husband & I go for the blackened Mahi Mahi served every day. We haven't had a bad meal one at this place so I feel it would be good. Have fun!

I think they would work with you on dietary needs... try to go when they are not as busy... or, stop by when you're on a grocery run to Dolphin and take a look at their menu.

Aqua bistro has been open when we have been there in early and mid November. Some restaurants in the area are closed until later in the season but we have always had enough choices.
