Typical beach fare but un-typically good. Fairly priced with a great out-door eating option. It's been a favorite of ours for over 25 years!

Floated in by boat, easy docking, on a blisteringly hot Sunday. Haven't been here in probably 15 years because quite frankly, it just wasn't good. Decided to give it a try as restaurants you can tie up to are few and far between. Fans were blowing and an umbrella provided some respite from the heat. We always get grouper sandwiches... More

Had a couple of good meals here whilst staying in Indian Shores and would go back again as the service is good and the food's great. Closes early (around 9-10pm'ish) so isn't somewhere you can spend a whole night but there's other bars around you can move onto should you wish. Sat on the patio overlooking the Intercoastal, which was... More

Had scallops and Mahi Mahi and both were overcooked and dry. Also had a rum runner and sent it back, was not made well. Will not be a return customer.

The staff knows the menu and will recommend the right dish. We went with fish every time. Nice to sit and watch the boats go by.

The Pub Waterfront Restaurant is located right on the Intercoastal Waterway. I guess that’s pretty obvious now that I wrote it. Anyway, the establishment has a large outside patio, a large parking lot AND plenty of docks for those coming in by water. They also have a large gift shop where jewelry, souvenirs, and clothing can be purchased. When we... More

I ordered the fresh fish of the day, Amber-jack. I had fresh Amber-jack many times and this was not one of them. I don't mind paying 20+ for the fresh catch, just wish it had been fresh. Local who was a bar owner in the area told me not many restaurants around here actually serve fresh fish. He named a... More

We ate at The Pub the first day we arrived on vacation, and it was delicious. The server was polite and offered up some great selections. I've never been an oyster fan, but she recommended I try them and my husband agreed. They didn't disappoint! Both the Oysters Rockefeller and Oysters Chicago were awesome, and I can confidently say I'm... More
