Celebrated Father's Day. Had a little time to shop in the attached TB Store which was crowded but had some really nice things. We were seated within about 10 minutes of our reservation. We were not hurried throughout the entire meal. Started with one of...More

Took the family after Rock Harbor Easter services, everyone enjoyed themselves, we all had different dishes from egg benedict to tacos to salmon salad, all were tasty. Service was great, nice atmosphere with entertainment, you'll feel like you're in Hawaii...

Coconut shrimp and goat cheese appetizers are amazing. I had the fish and chips and the fish was great. Wasn't a fan of the yuka fries but I'd get it again for the fish. My friend loved the fish tacos.
