Pretty view, but food was just average. Nothing out of the ordinary. My fiance had a BLT, and I had a fresh fish wrap. Both were good, but nothing that would make me want to really go back.

The best part of this restaurant is the view of the Intercoastal Waterway. Good appetizers at the bar for Happy Hours. We've taken visitors here for Sunday brunch many times.

Got two Grouper sandwiches and a Cesar Salad. Grouper was greasy and way too blackened. Inedible. The Cesar salad was slimy. They overcharged us. Even the fries were cold greasy and not even close to fresh. Would never go back. Ever.
