This was a fantastic experience. The hours were messed up on the facebook page but we arrived early. We sat and ate on the upper deck with Patricia. She was a delight. We would eat every night here if we were to return. Drinks good. Food great. Service perfect. One entree was the grilled lobster we selected from the live tank on the lower deck. It was without question perfectly prepared. The beef entree was also prepared perfectly. Salads, grilled calamari, drinks, desserts...superb. I love having an amazing meal and this was one of those rare times.

This was, at best, an adventure in not fine dining. This is a restaurant which is moored off short by 20 feet and only reachable by their "boat" consisting of two benches 15 foot long pushed by the operator to the restaurant and after the meal, pushed back to short with attached rope. The restaurant is not air conditioned. My dinner of steak was ordered as medium and was not rare, but RAW. All entrees are somewhat spicy, Dessert was the highlight of the evening. Bill for 4 people, with no lobster was $200.00 plus tip. Taxi to and from hotel - $60.00...A evening to remember...

I am a foodie. This restaurant was fantastic.. The surf and turf was perfect. The chocolate lava cake was worth the wait. The ambience is beautiful and the staff is amazing a special thank you to Althea for our Valentines dinner reservation.

We ate at the Houseboat grill last week. The food was good but it seemed it was better on our first visit. The prices are pretty expensive and we were expecting a better lobster. The lobster was good, but not as good as our cook made at our villa.
