Our favorite spot!

Price:Beers around $5, dinner plates $15-18, desserts $5

Food:Large, varied menu (complete menu available on their website). Conch salad is excellent, as are the BBQ ribs and smoked fish dip (sounds not too appetizing but is actually incredibly fabulous). The cole slaw is a bit too mayonnaise-y and creamy for our liking. The Key Lime pie is hit or miss. Once was great, another time was a tiny circular thing with hard whipped cream–obviously store bought. Just ask if it’s fresh.

Atmosphere:This is the reason we keep going back. It’s an open-air restaurant directly on the marina, and you can watch boats drive up & dock to have dinner, as well as watch the sun set. There’s been live music every evening we’ve gone. When it’s warm, they have lots of fans. We’ve been there when it’s cold (40 degrees!) and they roll down the plasic walls & turn on gas heaters.

Service:The waitstaff has always been incredibly pleasant. Kelly H. is our favorite!

Tidbits:You have to walk through an old hotel lobby to find this place. When you think you’re lost, keep walking. Don’t hesitate to ask the guy at the front desk or gift shop. They’re super-nice. This restaurant is a central location, as it’s across the street from the beach, close to charter fishing boats and lots of shopping. Valet parking is actually not a bad deal if you’re going to be there a while. Otherwise, use the metered lot across the street. Locals, this is a free lot if you’ve gotten the parking card.
