Very nice restaurant, with a beautiful waterfront view. Quaint little restaurant with a large water-side deck. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Waitresses were attentive and polite.

We're located in the Historic District of Downtown Stuart, under the south east corner of the Roosevelt Bridge, adjacent to Flagler Park. Bring the whole family and beach toys for the little ones.Your favorite Fido can come too because we're pet friendly ALL THE TIME! We are 100% open air with umbrella's on most tables. Please check our cold/wet/windy weather status on our Facebook page as we close if the wind is blowing more than 25 MPH, it's an all day rain-out or we have both high wind and temps in the 60s to low 70s in the winter season.
