Just a great location. Not great food. Met some old friends and one visiting from NY. Sat us in the back behind a pole. One friend had several food issues. They were not interested in modifying menu items.

Been coming for many years, usually just for drinks but had lunch this time. Seafood Quesdilla was unique, yet really good. Also got the Lobster Salad Club that was big and pretty darn good.

Good food and drinks for a reasonable price. Also they have music on the weekends. Great views too! And we have had good service every time so far.

I picked out this restaurant because I wanted to eat somewhere with a view of the ocean. My partner was very growly, for a number of reasons, but he recovered when our food arrived. He had the Hibachi Chicken Teriyaki and thought that the meal was very good and very reasonable. I had the Seafood Quesadilia which was delicious. Nothing... More

This was a great place to grab lunch. We had sangria, margaritas and fish tacos. When sitting on the deck, watch for the birds. The restaurant was happy to replace my drink once bird pooped in it. Other wise it was a great time.

My favorite spot to take a break from the beach; especially when Ruth is working the bar! She is the best!! Tropical vibe, calypso band; and the best mojitos in Lauderdale by the Sea.

Not only did they have a great selection on their menu, there was live music inside and outside (street was blocked off). Chesapeake Crabcake sandwich was tasty indeed!
