Three main course meals came out; one assorted seafood platter was missing due to the lobster being over-cooked. While I applaud the server's judgement to hold back the platter, I have to give a...

Sorry to say but this was a terrible lunch. First of all "who keeps old carpet on the floor of a seafood restaurant". The food was terrible and the prices were outrageous. The server had personality minus. All of this resulted in a huge bill and a feeling of having thrown my money in the trash. ( not to mention... More

My parents who often eat at this seafood restaurant near the Dadeland Mall invited me here for my birthday and it couldn't have been a better choice! We started with some crab stuffed mushroom caps and these were delicious and just the thing to open up our appetites. I chose the Florida lobster as my main course and it tasted... More

I have been going to this restaurant for 25 years and it really has not changed much in all that time. It needs a make over probably but its still offers fresh, simple, well prepared fish that is really good and not fancy at all. The fish is always high quality and the food is always consistent. You won't go... More
