Never been here before but was recommended by friends. Staff was busy and some of them not too pleasant to deal with. Finally got a table. They have a sign posted to seat yourself, but manager was taking names for a wait list. Manager would cuss and huff under his breath. Our server was nice but forgetful. Served iced tea... More

The food is quite good, sliders are very tasty, wings, philly cheese steak all better than expected given that the setting is so dumpy. Terrible cheap and tacky furnishings, and rickety bar take so much away from this beautiful intercoastal waterside location. The place is so poorly designed and so poorly run. Avoid Sundays if the guy with the steel... More

I am a local here and this is one of our favorite places to dine! On top of having great food and great prices, it sits on the intercoastal waterway with a great view of the boats passing through. They also have excellent customer service! The servers, bartenders, and even the kitchen staff are always welcoming. We have a 3... More

This was a very poor Judgement on behalf of management/Ownership...not the employee's...you completely understaffed yourself for which in turn made many locals and visitor's so miserable they will not return. With an event as Sunday Tea dance you should brought more staff in....your employee's are so overwhelmed by the pressures they are not so polite...this is a fun industry that... More

Easy going, comfort food with a great on the water location. Taxi boats stop right next to dock, so you can easily come here, eat and continue down the water. Good selection of the favorites like burgers, wraps, sandwiches etc. All very low key and great atmosphere. They do various things during the week to keep the variety on the... More

We return to this relaxed Dockside location every time we stay in Fort Lauderdale. We use the Water Taxi to get there. Good food, friendly service, nice sunset view, & plenty of specials throughout the week. This is certainly "where the locals go".
