Average seafood restaurant. Drinks are good as is the view. Be better if they make more seating, wait times too long.

The atmosphere here is fun, the service was great and my salad was delicious. My daughter had the black bean burger, which she also said was very good. I found the prices to be reasonable as well. A nice break from the beach, though the wait for a table may be long, (they give you a buzzer).

In town for lunch, and heard about shark teeth searching in this area. This is the only restaurant in the immediate area, and it is nice to sit with a water view, but not worth the prices. Artichoke and lobster app was the best thing we had, which was very good. Macadamia crusted grouper was average, coconut shrimp tasted like... More

OK atmosphere. Crowded. Food mediocre at best. Prices way too high for the food. It is rated as one of the must visit restaurants in Venice. Maybe, if you want to say you visited the 'tourist trap'. One visit is more than enough for me.

Our meal was good, though perhaps a bit overpriced for what we ordered. The ambiance was fun. We went around sunset time and had to wait about an hour for our table, so we walked out the pier and watched the sunset. Supposedly the surrounding beach area is great place to find sharks teeth, but we did not find any.... More

Place is so big and busy and crowded! What a circus. Very touristy. Not very laid back atmosphere . Food is OK. Nice view of pier and ocean.

Was very busy, but staff is excellent! Waitress gave me a sample of a drink, before ordering, too sweet for me, so good call. Food was very good, nice view, great parking. Waitress, and other staff always ask if you need anything, kept checking by, but not in that annoying way. Too full to get desert, but it looked really... More

Always come here either while on the beach or for drinks and dinner at sunset. Great fun atmosphere and prices are reasonable. Of course, super busy in season but we expect that

This excellent restaurant takes no reservations and it is always crowded. Our projected wait time was 70 minutes but we got a table in less than that and there is the beach and pier while one waits. There is also a cash bar to help bide the time. The menu runs the full gamut of seafoods and land lubber choices... More

We were told that we could find shark teeth on the beach. We didn't find and any, but we did have a good dinner. It was crowded and there was about a 70 minute wait. The food was good, and waiter, Fred, offered great service. Beautiful sunset!
