Very, very pretty view. The place is more of a shack outside - but that would have been fine. They say their specialty is lobster. No lobster. They were also out of most of their wines on the list. We didn't eat there.

This is an excellent restaurant and it is located on the water. Very cool setup and amazing fish that can be seen in the water. Free entertainment on some nights. Ask about it!

We stopped for a drink and to watch the tarpon. The cook came out with some scraps to get them eating for us. Really friendly staff. Great view. Drinks are good and prices usual for island prices. We didn't eat here. Maybe next time.

Food was a hit and miss and very pricey, waitress seem more interested in the men than doing their jobs. The view is great and as soon as the sun went down we asked for our check and left . Not worth the effort
