We had lunch with 2 other couples on a very pretty day. Setting was great, fried green tomatoes fabulous, soup very hearty and everyone was pleased. Service was slow but it was a busy day.

Had a great Cuban sandwich which I enjoyed tremendously. However, for the atmosphere, I thought the prices were high which brought my rating down to a 4*.

Great food in the best location! The Boca Wrap is a must: grouper fingers, rice and beans in a burrito... delish! The Cobb salad and Grouper sandwich is fabulous too. Don't forget to leave room for their homemade ice cream: there's good reason it was...More
