Great setting. Local feel you don't always get in FLL. My yellow tail snapper was excellent. more

I came here on a sunday for a brunch, to little did I know a surprise party for my birthday. The servers were very attentive and friendly! Tho i wasn't really a fan of how small the menu was and that everything was itemized out individual, the food was still very very tasty. I would definitely come back. more

Great wait staff, our server was very attentive & friendly. The sangria was kind of off though, and my comfort bowl was over seasoned, as a whole my party didn't like the food. more

JL & I brought a friend (DC) here who was visiting from out of town to have what I thought would be a quintessential Ft Lauderdale waterside brunch experience, and that did end up being the case but in the worst sense possible. Our server was very distracted and barely made proper eye contact, and it took over 30 minutes to get our entrees. In the meantime, both DC & JL had pronounced their Bellinis undrinkeable, although I'm fairly certain that a degree in mixology is really not required in order to concoct a half-way decent one. \r \r The kicker, however, was the entrees. DC had an eggs benedict, JL had an omelet, and I had a the special, an unappetizing pile of layered items that I should have known better than to order given the fact that it had 6 or more disconnected ingredients in it. The eggs benedict came with a few blueberries on the side and the omelet came, well, alone, with the two-thirds of the plate not occupied by said omelet sitting there sadly and glaringly empty. To add insult to injury, a person at the next table over had an omelet as well but with a heaping amount of fruit on the side. When the waiter was asked, he simply shrugged and stated that they'd run out of fruit. He had to be pressed to go and search for something to have as a side, and when he finally returned with the omelet there were a few forlorn blueberries sadly rolling around the previously completely (and still mostly) empty vast expanse of plate. I looked at it with mouth agape but this didn't seem to phase the waiter, who scuttled off in a sweaty hurry. \r \r In case you're wondering, the final verdict was that the eggs were ok, the omelet was flavorless, and the less said about my dish the better. At least we had a good laugh afterward.\r \r Based on my previous experience here which was better but unremarkable, it seems that this place is pretty much just coasting on its reputation. The seemingly hopeless quest for affordable & decent Fort Lauderdale waterfront brunching goes on. more

We came in on a Saturday night at 8pm, there was a long wait so we put down our name and was told it would be 40 minutes. We went on to watch every single person be seated before us,including people who came in AFTER US. We were a party of 3 and saw atleast 5 couples of 2 come in and be seated at four person tables. We continued to ask the hostess who told us to go sit down and they'd call us. 10 minutes turned into yet another 40! We were then told we were next on the list and saw 3 more parties seated before us. One person in our party finally went up to ask what was up or we were leaving, we were finally seated in an area with THREE open tables to the disgust of the hostess.\r \r The hostess' was named Kelly.\r \r The waiter was named Derek, he was very kind, brought a free appetizer which we appreciated. Unfortunatly the night had been ruined by the terrible service! The motto of this place is "be nice" and that was NOT our experience. We send friends all the time on vacations recommending places and we will be sure to tell them to stay absolutely clear of this place. Ruined our otherwise beautiful dinner. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 6/6/2012

We dined here for the first time on Saturday evening and the experience was PERFECT. Our service was very pleasant and attentive even though the place was absolutely packed. There was nothing like sitting outside with all of the yachts in view watching the sunset and sipping your cocktails!\r The food here was very good, and I was a little hesitant to try this place after reading all of the negative reviews regarding the service and food here, but being a local here all of my life I finally took the plunge and I'm glad we did. I had the "Yard Bird" entree for dinner, and it was a whole 1/2 of chicken that was super moist, tender, and flavorful. The best part was that it was completely boneless! My only main gripe was regarding my side of rice and peas. Someone went completely OVERBOARD with the bay leaves, as I had to pick out 2 whole leaves in my serving on my plate which was bizarre and a turn-off. Bay leaves are supposed to be used to gently season a soup or dish and are supposed to be taken out PRIOR to serving. It was like eating perfume flavored rice and peas. The flavor was way too overpowering for the side dish, so I would probably steer clear of ordering the rice and peas again, & suggest you do the same.\r Overall we loved it. It was a great first time experience and it was a perfect night, service and food both. We will be back! more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 5/2/2012

A regular and recurrent restaurant on the beach. Over the years been pretty much on the same parking lot. However now you are forced to pay for valet as there are no other parking options. \r When seated the limited water view and overbearing waitstaff, that must have a timer over your head to get you as quick as possible, was a unfriendly experience. Music inside was of such a volume that a normal conversation was not possible with my lunch guests.\r Food is good and came out quick. Portions are right sized.\r But to top it off, our waiter must have decided to add the 18% gratuity, although we are all locals and a party of 4. The place has more potential if managed more correctly ...\r Not again. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 4/24/2012

Terrible food, worse service and forced 18% tip on ALL checks regardless of party size. Went because of all the positive reviews. The waitress was unfriendly and ignored us. She took our silverware after our appetizers and it was over 10 minutes after our entrees arrived before I could get her attention to get some so we could eat. Then she still visited other tables before bringing it out. The menu has very limited descriptions on the food. Before we ordered we asked what came on the fish tacos and we were told mango and avacado salsa. The fish tacos should have been called "soggy tomato tacos" there was no avocado and only a few tiny pieces of mango. We literally had an entire tomato on each taco. The fish was supposed to be blackened, but there were no seasoning that we could find. The specialty drink tasted like bathroom soap. Terrible food, worse service and 18% gratuity added to ALL checks (we were a party of 2). more

After a day of rough fishing, we stopped in and ate lunch here. Food was fantastic, atmosphere was great. Sits right on the water with a great view. I had the crab cakes with their house made mustard aoli sauce. Really good. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 4/15/2012

Fantastic!!! Whole Snapper was outstanding. Also great were the Scooby Blue Crab Claws and Oysters. My wife had Coconut Shrimp and enjoyed every bite. Great atmosphere, beautiful sunset and a great meal. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 4/2/2012

Wow. We have been coming to the Fort Lauderdale area for 12 years. How did we miss it? The restaurant lives up to it's rating. The Comfort Bowl w/Lobster. Out of this world. The fish tacos. Fantastic. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 3/21/2012

Bad food, bad drinks, waitress unfriendly. Do not know how they stay in business except for the poor unassuming tourist. Ugh more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 2/26/2012

AWESOME!!! Food was amazingly great! Our crew had the coconut shrimp and conch fritters apps that were super tastey. Mahi tacos, scallops with pesto and the best chocolate chip cookie desert. All the food was fresh, perfectly cooked and great! The desert was enough for four people!!! more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 2/19/2012

The food was wonderful and the selection for gluten free meals were many. I was thrilled with the lobster roll minus the roll and my husband had their fish tacos and some excellent Mac n Cheese. The waitress was very helpful and knew just what gluten free items I could have. The food is not overpriced as others have said you get what you pay for and the location is beautiful. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 1/16/2012

Had the Lobster Roll- really good, especially since they let me leave out the celery. I mean it was really good... a whole maine lobster with hellmans mayo on a toasted, buttered roll- perfection. I have had the tuna (fresh) salad before, it is really good. My BUT... it was a mob scene, not enjoyable. On top of the crazy noise, they were jack hammering right behind us adding on to the restaurant. No apology, no mention. Come on folks- a long drive, Sunday with good friends, looking to chillax... no jack hammer please. Do it on your own dime, like when the restaurant is closed! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! more

Nice place for the locals on FTL beach. Doesn't have an ocean view but the food is good and the staff usually friendly. Pricey drinks more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 10/1/2011

Great place!! The scubbys and mahi mahi are awesome, excellent service!!! more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 9/23/2011

This is a nice, low key place located on the intracoastal side of the beach. The fish tacos are really good with a delicious mango salsa. The ceviche changes daily, but the conch is the best. My partner ALWAYS gets the lobster roll. The prices are reasonable for the portions. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 8/12/2011

This was my favorite restaurant that I visited while down in Fort Lauderdale. The service was great...they all worked as a team to make sure my mom and I had a great dining experience. I had the fish fish tacos I ever had! My mom had mahi mahi topped with lump crab meat (a dinner special) which was also very tasty. The Sangria was great...I will definitely come back when I visit Fort Lauderdale again. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 7/16/2011

Went there one afternoon after the beach and had an amazing meal! The dip duo sounded decent but was surprisingly unique with the chipotle pimento cheese. My wife ordered the special summer salad, and the shrimp was perfect. I ordered the pork belly special with pickled watermelon rind, and was not disappointed! It was amazing! more
