    The food looks beautiful but is just Okay, lobster tail was chewy and over cooked, most of the other food was lacking taste, the view of the sunset is what you’re paying for. Wait staff was friendly.

    We went on 4th of July and had a beautiful and delicious dinner! Service was impeccable and food outstanding! We were a little disappointed that, as locals, we did not recieve a more generous consideration on the bill, however meager, it was appreciated!! Will be back! Keep up the good work!

    Food was pretty good. But the ambiance, decor, and general feel of the place was a bit tired. There was more than one place where the roof had leaked and molded. Staff was great, super friendly and helpful.

    Hostess was rude. Service was slow. Will seat you directly in the sun when you ask for shade and say all the tables are reserved. Only 2 other tables showed up while we were there. Another Family which also requested a different table was denied. Third party of white people came and when seated requested a different table and were allowed to change.

    The venue and views of the sunset were great, drinks were good, but we waited over 45 minutes for food, and while the food was good, based on reviews I expected it to be better. Fun place for a date night, would probably stick to drinks and appetizers next time

    Beautiful place to watch the sunset….probably would have been best to just get drinks or drinks and appetizer. We split a tuna appetizer. Taste was good and accompaniments refreshing, but tuna was very tough to cut with a fork. Husband and i both had the crusted grouper. Taste again was good, but grouper was slightly overcooked and there was not enough sauce on the plate.
