We always eat here when we visit the Mote Aquarium. Cool little place with friendly staff and the fish & chips is plenty of food for two.

Very cool place by the water. Beautiful view. Hubby and I had the shrimp basket and it tasted fresh and it was not overly done. The grill is also near the Mote Aquarium.

Really like this place - full of rustic american stuff and great value for money. Simple service and a great location to gaze out over the water.
