We had to wait a little extra to get an outdoor table, but it was worth it. Friendly waitress, great waterfront table. Shrimp/lobster chowder is amazing! We both enjoyed our entrees -- blackened dolphin and stuffed shrimp. Plaintains were best we've had outside of Costa Rica!

This seafood restaurant is right on the Indian River in Jenson Beach. Lots of atmosphere and gorgeous views from the back where there’s a covered deck. Nice breeze off the water, and you can sigh over the million dollar waterfront condos next door, while also watching the seagulls perform their squabbling flights.
But along with a great view you want great food. That’s where the 3 stars comes in.
I had the smoked fish appetizer ($12.95), and the shrimp and lobster bisque($9.00/bowl).
The smoked fish spread was OK. Not awesome, and seemed to have more cream cheese than fish in it. It’s locally sourced from Mrs. Peters smokehouse restaurant (“ We smoke everything but mermaids” being their motto.)
The bisque was flavorful although heavy on the salt. Minuscule flakes of seafood detected.
Lunch was $25, $30 with tip. Waitress was excellent and answered many of my questions about the community.
Not an awful meal but not a great one either. In all fairness other things on the menu might be incredibly good.

We took a friend here for lunch. Lots of old Hollywood stars grace the lobby with their pictures. Waiter was very friendly and chatty. I had the fish tacos (delish), fish and chips...both excellent. When the onion rings came out lukewarm, they were immediately replaces. An upscale place with FL casualness.

Great place to go. Nice location on the water with a varied and well made menu makes this a must go to restaurant. Two full bars with outdoor seating available. The service is friendly and attentive. We have Ben here several times and enjoyed it each time.

We’ve been coming here for years for the happy hour app menu 3-6pm everyday, unlike some places who only have M-F happy hour. There r about 8 items for Half price. No big drink deals. They only take 50 cents or a dollar off drinks. The chicken wings are awesome and big with a dry batter and sauce on the side with celery, carrots and blue cheese or ranch dressing $8. Calamari is our second choice then the relish tray. There’s an outside bar by the water and an inside bar that overlooks the water. The restaurant is on the Indian River Lagoon. There is a dock for boat parking.
