We had a long wait but the staff was kind and helpful through the process. It was dog friendly, which was wonderful. They have vegan items and something for the whole family including kids.

extremely saddened by the way my fam and I were treated. When we got there the hostess said that there was a shift change and it may take a while, completely understandable. We got seated eventually (still okay with it) and were seated minimum about 10 minutes, after us two different parties arrived. A few minutes passed and both parties were being helped and even got there beverages. I asked a tall blonde girl what was going on and she legit said “oh., they may have forgotten “…. A few minutes more passed and nothing. I honestly felt embarrassed by it all and thought of so many reasons why my family and I got ignored. I honestly felt overwhelmed and left out. So we got up and Began walking our while the employees just watched and no one stopped us to ask what happened. But that’s okay, it gave my fam and i to walk to Landry’s and received top shelf service and the food was beyond amazing. Everything was perfection. Thank you to Landry’s for hosting us

Drinks were nice and seafood was fresh. Would definitely go again.


Drinking by the ocean! They have a handful of taps and a couple interesting beers. One section moves with the water and some folks can't drink here. The bar was uniformly sticky and hot but out of the sun. Views of the city and the water are nice. Parking is weak. Go elsewhere for that sweet air-conditioning. Food was fantastic. People seriously wait in line for 2 hours for this place?! No joke, when I was leaving people were waiting 2hrs to eat here, but at least you can walk along the head even though it is almost all for parking and there's exactly zero shade.


Food was amazing! Only thing was the shrimp was salty/over seasoned.

I have to admit it but they have the best seafood ever! I enjoyed it for the first time and our waitress Victoria did an amazing job taking care of us and answering my questions. I highly recommend this place to everyone!

The staff was nice.Menu extremely over priced for the quality of food i received.I had the flounder. Rice was dry and partially uncooked. Flounder had no flavor. The only thing I enjoyed was the asparagus.

Food is pretty good especially the calamari. The bar tenders act like they hate their job and the customers can tell by their NOT so shining customer service skills. We sat on in the patio area and we're sick to our stomach after seeing the filth that is right out in the open, by the drink stand.

My reason for 2 stars: the wait. We were told it'd be about a 25-35 min wait, but ended up being a 55 min wait. Also, we waited at least 35-40 min for our food to finally arrive. I got the shrimp boil, not too shabby, but the shrimp was cold after waiting 40 min for it...

Great peaceful place to dine & enjoy the scenery of the Marina. The food was fresh and delightful! We had the Shrimp Diablos and Redfish Casino. Both were excellent! And the service was great too! Definitely pay them a visit!

The location was really nice. The food was good. Our waitress was excellent. It seems to be a popular place. We arrived about 7:30 and were seated about 8:00.

We ordered burgers and they were decent. The server ignored us and failed to refill our drinks. We also ordered drinks from the bar we received them 20 minutes later. My mojito was water at that point and my husband had a warm beer. No one checked on us so I was unable to speak with someone about what happened. Our server seemed to be quite attentive and helpful to all of his other tables. We were just the unlucky ones. I'm guessing our full drinks, empty waters, and picked over plates weren't hint enough. This is the first time in my life I have not left my server a tip. It was that bad. $60 well wasted.

Excellent and flavorful food. Definitely try the crab and jalapeño hush puppies. Atmosphere was amazing and definitely chill. Shout out to the wait staff. Super friendly, helpful and attentive. However make sure to check in with the front if you're dining in- especially two hours before close.
