We ate here and loved it! At first we were stuck at a table in the corner; no one came for a while; then Tanya came by and took pity on us! First she let us move and sit by the window; then she was just amazing! She helped us with the menu and everything came out perfect. We ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️... More

We shared the seafood platter while watching the barges and birds from the upstairs window. Pretty location and good food! The frozen key lime pie was enough for us to want to return. Friendly atmosphere with other birders to compare sightings with.

People seem to love this place, and I don't get it...the waitress was as slow as one can be..any slower and she wouldn't be moving. She didn't know the menu at all, she asked me questions and when I finally said I don't know I've never eaten here, shouldn't you know? The locals raved about this place , that's why... More

Variety is the strong suit of this restaurant, both in terms of the menu and locale. Upstairs is a casual/classic seafood environment while downstairs it the even more casual/laid back ("down under") patio, each with different menus and hours. Both sites share the view of the intracoastal waterway. The menu features a wide variety of cooking styles and tastes with... More

My friends and I were told the wait would be an hour. So, after about an hour and 15 minutes, we go and ask if we could get a table. The only way to do that was to split our group up. So, we did. After about 10 minutes, the waitress comes to take our drink order. After about another... More

So the Stingaree Restaurant does have fantastic view and the staff was very friendly and accommodating; however, the food was just average. It wouldn't be such a big deal, but after the tip the bill ended up over $60 for two of us and water. We love seafood, but my wife found the sauce used for the "Jamaican Jerk" seasoned... More

When we visited the Restaurant the main restaurant was closed but the bottom level was open. Great family atmosphere and wonderful views. My husband and I went while just us and it was cozy. Great views of the intercostal. Our waitress was fantastic. Ask what's the best- crab nachos! Amazing!!!

With the limited lunch venues at the Bolivar Peninsula, this is one of the better ones. A little pricey for lunch, and not a lot of food for the buck.
