First time I have ever been asked to leave my table in the midst of my meal with at least three bottles of wine!! Manager insulted us when he asked us to leave and did not seem to care. Bad service. Don't waste your $

If you are on the SunCoast, local or visitor, this should be on your restaurant list. The restaurant features a fresh caught fish of the day. Our night was black grouper. We both decided on the Grouper Provencal. Unfortunately, it missed the mark. But our...More
