We had a group of six in outdoor dining area. We sat for probably 7 or8 minutes with no waitstaff stopping so one of our group went to bar and ordered drinks. Once we had drinks, waitress did stop at table.
Please note the restaurant was maybe 2/3 full and bar was not busy. After food arrived we asked for a second drink, which consisted of a few beers and a wine. We were all done eating prior to those drinks being served and waitress said she was sorry but bar was backed up and making our drinks....
I don't know if they were picking and crushing the grapes for the wine but the delay was crazy.
Normally I tend to rate more on food quality than service, but this time the service took the rating from a 5 to just average.

We really wanted to like this place - awesome setting and ability to see a sunset on the east coast of Florida. We were able to seat ourselves right away, but was at least 10 min before we saw our server to take our drink order. It was another 10 before we received it and then ordered peel and eat shrimp and fish tacos. By the time we got the shrimp - which was served over ice - the ice was mostly melted and the shrimp was soggy. The fish tacos were a huge disappointment. All I can say is the sunset makes up for it - almost.

We came in as a big party of 12 and were easily accommodated by the friendly and efficient staff. The view is spectacular and the food and drinks were excellent. A great value and experience.

This was our first visit to dine since deck has been open. We had some good reports from friends so we decided to go see for ourselves. Weather was perfect as you will see in our pictures. Food, service and scenery all very good. I had the fried shrimp which was very good. Other dishes such as fish & chips scored very good as well. We will definitely be returning in the future.
