Fish and chips are great. Fresh cut fries would have been better. Frozen fries served didn't compliment the fish too well. Kalamari was great. The Cuban was great too. Shrimp and corn soup had great flavor but was mostly broth, a little disappointed there. Clam chowder was tasty, had good body. Loved the simple ordering and dining process. Everything served...

Awesome view of the bay and downtown Tampa with delish food options. I had the Taco Trio which was truly amazing. Will visit again when I'm in the area

Service was excellent. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor has a great view of Tampa and Tampa Bay. Food was mediocre fried seafood. I had the grilled grouper which was supposed to be fresh but didn't taste like it. Anything fried tastes good right? There are many other better seafood places. If you are in the park and want...

No matter when I visit, the food is always fresh and delicious. This time around I ordered the crab cakes. They were perfectly prepared and seasoned just right and definitely satisfied my appetite. Sitting outside with the gentle breeze blowing in from the bay, the scenic view of the pier, and the birds perched on the rocks sets the atmosphere... More

I just went during the evening with the fam to go to the small bridge and park this location offers. The ice cream was really good and it looked like the food was also good. The bridge is open for the public at no charge and you can fish there too. I think that the location is perfect for BBQ... More

Great friendly service from all the servers. They worked as a team and constantly there to refill drinks etc... I had steamed clams and buffalo shrimp and they were both great. Large delicious portions which wasn't what I had expected. It is on the dock so you can sit inside or out and watch the boats. We went to the... More

Had the Mahi and Scallops blackened, which was done fairly well. But, cole slaw served in a two ounce cup with fries and onion rings little disappointing. So I ordered a Cuban sandwich which was a thin slice of bread no meat, very disappointed. The pint sized concession with a great view and no parking good luck.

Nice place for a quick lunch. The food was good. Nice stroll on the pier afterward. It wasn't busy at the time we had lunch, but the place is small so I imagine they backup quickly.

I had the grilled fish (I forgot the name of the fish), sweet potato fries and coleslaw. It was a really good meal. The server was very attentive and kept on checking on me, the atmosphere was great....minus the squirrel that kept coming close to my table and kept staring at me as if it was waiting to be fed....

This was our first visit based on a recommendation of a friend. Although the restaurant has been at this location for a long time (not always under this name) I had never been there before.The location is wonderful, right at the end of Bayshore Blvd. The menu is varied, with an emphasis on fish, and reasonably priced. Perhaps best of... More
