Loved the atmosphere , it was on the lake and very nice. We where seated quickly and so was our food. The services was ok we had to flag the waiter a few times. The only real problem was we where still hungry when we left. We didn't order an appetizer or dessert so this was with just the entree... More

These guys know what they are doing! It is a casual atmosphere sitting at picnic tables in a covered patio at water's edge. Kalie was our server and she was one of the best we've had anywhere - timely, anticipated our needs, genuinely friendly, knowledgeable about the dishes, on the ball. As she suggested, the best grouper I've had anywhere.... More

Judging by some of the reviews, I was skeptical about eating here. Completely isolated events, in my opinion. We had to wait to be seated...no longer than any other restaurant. Once seated, our orders were placed in a normal amount of time. Meals were received simultaneously and prepared perfectly. Request Heather...she's awesome!! They were extremely busy while we were there,... More

We have been to the restaurant several times. The one thing that keeps us coming back is being able to specifically sit on the deck and look out lake, see the boats and seeing the kids feed the ducks. Food is ok, nothing out of the ordinary, all frozen. Forgive the hostess & select your own opinion.

The food was very good , It came hot and plentiful( Way to many sweet potato fries). The waitress was very pleasant. After a seven hour drive it was great to have good food and good service.

Four of us stopped in for a late lunch on a wednesday. They had a huge outdoor dining area and my favorite beer! My wife ordered her favorite dish of bacon wrapped shrimp while I ordered stuffed grouper(or snapper). My food was mediocre at best. Her shrimp was terrible! She could neither taste the shrimp nor the bacon. In our... More

This restaurant is located directly on Lake Hamilton and offers fantastic views of the lake. There is seating inside and out. They also have a boat dock which allows for access directly from the lake. The interior decor is old school seaside (think fish, anchors, nets, etc). We were greeted immediately upon entry by the host and were promptly seated... More

This restaurant is great for the atmosphere of the back deck. It is not hard to imagine being at a gulf coast seafood restaurant. However, the service is sketchy and the food is so so. Our waitress seemed to have too many tables to worry about and kept forgetting us. The seafood was Red Lobster quality...just ok. It is NOT... More
