My family and I went back to this restaurant while we were on vacation and I was still pleased with their food. I had a rib eye and it was good. Mom mother had the prime rib and she said it was delicious. My son had the swordfish sandwich and he liked it. All the others said their dishes were... More

We visit this place for my son's graduation. We made reservation and we had a very nice time. The outside was very nice for pictures and beautiful view. The ladies were very friendly and accommodating especially for our size family. I recommend ordering the friend captains platter, it was ok. Overall a cool place

We went as a family (5 adults & 2 children) to celebrate Mother's Day on Saturday to avoid the rush the next day. We arrived early around 3:30pm and it was not busy. After waiting 30 minutes for the waitress, we ordered our food. About 15 minutes later the waitress came back and indicated one of the kid's menu selection... More

It was good food, although we found a hair cooked into our shrimp. The waitress Shirley made up for it by offering a free beer while we waited for an entire new entree which tasted great. A little pricy but the view is nice.

We had a pleasant lunch and the service was attentive. The outside sitting area is nice overlooking the water but inside it was very cold and dark and felt musty.

We just had dinner here and the view was wonderful, but the service was slow and the food mediocre at best. Two of us ordered the oyster stew which was only lukewarm easily 3 cups of milk and 5 oysters. We arrived at 545, so we're able to order off the early bird menu; one prime rib with a potato,...

We always enjoy having lunch on the porch to view the serene Indian River scenery. The Softshell BLT is still outstanding. Also, enjoyed the Grouper Sandwich. The creamy cole slaw and house made chips were also tasty.

The good news was the parking lot was large enough to park our 40 foot rv. The view was great out over the intercostal. The grouper was fantastic. I had blackened and my wife grilled. Fresh rolls right out of the oven. It is a bit of a shack, but that just adds to the experience.

It was a nice day so we decided to sit outside. The patio is very "rustic" with plastic chairs and tables. We had the soft shell crab sandwich for lunch. It was nothing special. It actually seemed to be over battered. And was not very satisfying. A side of mayo and seafood sauce, pickle and lettuce and tomato. The home... More

I wish I had a picture of the overcooked "Prime Rib" (ordered medium... Received jerky)... That I politely cut into the middle, still Grey, smiled and enjoyed the view... The insanely nice waitress noticed I was pushing around my steak and asked about it... I said it is just horribly overcooked ... She insisted on cooking me another quickly and... More
