I believe I had the blackened grouper sandwich- can't recall what my friend ate- but we both enjoyed our meal. I believe we each had one fruity cocktail which were also good. We sat out on the covered porch area at the end, where they were using those gas heaters- in the shade it was a tad chilly. But wonderful to be able to eat outdoors in nice atmosphere and not break the bank. Great waitress too.

In Cape Coral on business and our friends brought us here. It was most excellent! Ha a table for 7 where we could see the river traffic. Started with the coconut shrimp, mussels, and conch fritters. No complaints at all. Moved on to the French onion soup next, and it was the best I have had in quiet a while. Dinner brought on a variety of plates such as the seafood paella, filet, strip, lobster ravioli, pasta bolognese, and salmon. Everything was cooked perfectly. Barely room for dessert but we managed to squeeze it in. Coconut creme pie, key lime pie, and chocolate desserts were all to die for. I hate we ate here so late in the week, we would have definitely gone back for a repeat!!

We had not been to this place for at least 5 years and decided to stop by on the weekend after a boat trip. We had a wonderful server named Denine and she reminded us if we waited just a few minutes we could get happy hour prices. It was almost 3 in the afternoon. We had a couple of hors d'oeuvres and we all loved the coconut shrimp. The fried tilapia strips were not crispy and pretty boring so we didn't finish those. They have completed construction where the walkway used to be but the fence is still up so the view isn't as great as it will be once they get the new brick walk in and some decorations back. Still highly recommended if you're in the area and you just want to stop by for a cocktail and a snack. I'm not sure about the food since we didn't order main meals this time.

Friendly, courteous staff at a very busy establishment. When we're not accompanied by another couple, we eat at the bar and get the best of service.

Beautiful views of the setting sun while dining are abundant. Menu is varied with specials daily. We are always happy with all our meals and we've been back many times. It's one of our favorite places to dine in Cape Coral.

Happy hour specials are great - smaller portions of their delectable foods.

When you drive in, it may seem that the place is packed, but the condo owners are refusing to pay the new parking fees so they are parking all over the lawn and green areas. Don't be alarmed, usually there's parking in the Rumrunners parking lot.

Love the Key Lime Colada; need to limit myself because they are so tasty. Ordered the seafood potpie this visit and it did not disappoint; creamy with whole shrimp, scallops, crabmeat, and more. The flaky pastry was a bit too flaky and broke apart when touched. We sat on the outside deck and watched the water traffic during this visit. Will definitely return.
