The restaurant is located in a great spot on the beach and near the pier but the food is really just average. I would go back for a cocktail and the view.

The food was average, however, service was very good. We sat outside on the deck so enjoyed the atmosphere.

Six dinners including two children dined. Hubby had seafood pasta and loved it. Nephew had fried fish. Niece and I had escargot and it was the best ever. Drinks were strong and good. Definitely recommend dining here.

This restaurant was filled with people. The food was good I had the blackened Red Snapper and a cucumber martini. Only needed one martini... that should tell you something. I like the location and the ambiguous.

One of the best beach spots in Fort Lauderdale for the view. The vibe is breezy and mellow. Cool drinks and tasty food.
