The setting here along the intracoastal makes this location a pleasant place to dine. The service is OK. The food is OK.

Nice but confined views of intracoastal. Menu is wide ranging and food is just ok. Seemed like mostly families were there and a number of tourists...us. I wouldn't really recommend it unless you for in one of those categories. Lots of flies noticed as well....More

Great venue. Sat outside with a nice view of the intracoastal. Service was good especially for a busy Friday night. Fun atmosphere.

Great bistro/café on the water at a crossing bridge so you often get big yachts waiting for bridge opening. Food is good with great happy hours.
