We arrived about 6:30 pm Sunday night and had about a 15 minute wait, not bad considering the area is full of regulars and snowbirds. We ordered the sampler plate of baked oysters. Absolutely delicious! Our entrees were very good. The waitress Patricia just knew when we needed something but otherwise did not hover over us, She was friendly yet... More

We have eaten here many times and it is always wonderful. All of the staff is friendly, cordial and efficient. The food is delicious. We have tried many different items. We will keep coming back. There usually is a wait but it is worth it.

Not a bad place to enjoy a bite to eat. People love this place and we dont go as often as we would if not for the long lines and lack of parking. I think that the good prices bring a big following. Good for AMOB.

A nice little taste of old Florida. No frills, but big taste. The Tuna is delicious, more like a steak and never fishy. A pleasant surprise for those who don't like seafood is their skillet pasta dishes. Pasta served in a skillet. good taste, fresh food and a reasonable price are guaranteed.

Large menu of seafood (and small menu for "land-Lubbers) at reasonable prices. Beware of "Market price" items and ask what the cost is or you could be in for a big bill (like the $27 grouper sandwich which is usually only $12). Very casual and loud place. Wonderful clam strips and excellent cocktail sauce. Excellent lobster bisque. Crab cakes were... More

If you can get into the restaurant during "season" you will find basic restaurant food items prepared adequately . If you are on a fixed income, and get there early enough, this is the place for you. If large crowds and a somewhat high noise level bother you it's not the place for you. The service is excellent. Better than... More

Stopped at AMOB based on reviews in TripAdvisor & was not disappointed at all! Our waitress Katie,was as nice as could be, attentive & charming. I had the Fish N Chips, my wife had the Frogs Legs, Wings & Chowder. We also indulged in the Bloody Mary's & followed it all with dessert. It was all delicious, fresh & abundant.... More
