Stopped in for a light bite. We got an order of wings and the kitchen gave us two orders on the house! Wings were good and spicy! Washed it down with a beer while watching the draw bridge open and close. Service was quick and friendly. Wished their beer selection was larger.

The music was nice, location was great, but the menu seemed a bit limited. If you're looking for a family friendly place, this would be.a good spot to check out. The high top chairs outside on the deck are BRUTAL! We would have stayed for dinner, but we bailed after appetizers simply because the chairs were too uncomfortable to tolerate any longer. That said, I'm sure if you stay somewhere else in the restaurant it wouldn't be nearly as bad.

Definitely a nice place to visit. Good atmosphere, friendly waiter, and a good drink. Only down side was the inconsiderate family behind us. I will definitely go back though. The view is beautiful and I love sitting right on the water. Prices are good as well!

The grouper portion was tiny and the meat was mushy. Salad main was overpriced for iceberg lettuce, but the view was beautiful.

The location is very nice and I was looking forward to eating there. Once we arrived we were sat quickly and our server was very nice and quick. The food looked great when it got to the table but I was sooo disappointed in the taste . It had no flavor what so ever. We also had so many flies at the table it was kind of disgusting and just made it worse, although I do understand the flies is not their fault . I spent 60 on two entrees and I feel it was a waste . I wouldn’t come back here .

This place was good. It is waterfront so that's cool. To be able to see the boats dock nearby to come to eat here. The food was good. What I really enjoyed was the coleslaw. It has granny Smith apples and cranberries in it. The pasta was really good, and I enjoyed my shrimp and flounder! There was a guy playing music, so it was kinda hard to sit and have a conversation at the table.

This place was a great stop for food while we were out boating. The food was great and the view of the intercoastal was beautiful. They were filming a episode of some MTV reality show while we were there but the staff still made sure we were taken care of.

The outside seating was nice. A bit pricey. Portions to price dont compare. They could be bigger. Pasta that was ordered was undercooked and the sauce was more of a thinned down liquid consistency than the thick and creamy sauce it advertised. Live band was decent. Table was off balance and drinks kept spilling over anytime it was touched.

I've been going to the boatyard for years. Good service. The setting is nice. Great views of the water. I've had several things from the menu. I have no complaints. The main menu is a little overpriced for what you get. We normally go during happy hour. Prices were decent. Our most recent visit there was no HH menu. The bar tender verbally told us what was on it. Pretty much the norm but we had no idea until we received the check how much they had increased the prices. If you want a view it's a great place. If you want a good HH look further.

I paid $22 for this plate (crab stuffed flounder and broccoli. The slaw is from my husband's plate, I think he felt bad). The Cesar salad was an upcharge. It was fine to taste, but very overpriced. This is not how I remembered it was from 2 years ago.

Wonderful casual dining on the water. We sat outside with a perfect breeze & watched the sunset. The live nightly music was really enjoyable too. We had great service & staff was very friendly. We had the best chowder we've ever had here. Also had fish & chips that was delicious and a wedge salad with homemade Blue cheese dressing. Definitely a new favorite place. Can't wait to go back

Seems nice if You sit outside? The hostess wasn't pleasant, sat us where there was no air circulation. Finally asked our server if we could move, which we did.Didn't have anyone come back for way too long so we left...So, good luck if You venture out to go there.

Got bullied by management when addressing our poor service. Threatening to call the police scaring my 5 & 6 year old, thinking they were about to go to jail because we were stating that were not comfortable paying full price for our freezer burnt $27 Mahi. Beyond horrible service right along with the horrible food. We asked for a discount not a free meal, we did not deserve to get cops threatened. Period.

Cassidy is amazing. The hostess Jordan is terrible and ruined our bachelorette party. She made us wait 3 hours (despite being told 2) and we were never seated. This place is pretentious and obnoxious and you should avoid at all costs. There are many far better restaurants that are waterfront that are far better and worth the money without the sass.

Their food is horrible, you can get better food from the frozen aisle at the grocery store. The manager should never be able to work in the service industry as she is the rudest human I have ever encountered when talking to her about the food that our entire table did not enjoy nor eat.We got stuck paying $100 for food we DID NOT eat. I would have happily paid for 50% of the tab but when that was suggested the cops were threatened. I have never hoped a business went out of business before, but the people that run this establishment don't deserve to take up such a prime location for such bad food and customer service.

The location and view is great here, and the staff were all very nice! However, the food was mediocre at best, and my husbands dish was terrible. He ordered the grouper with bourbon glaze- I swear it was straight ketchup squirted on top and they called that a bourbon glaze! Yuck! We were a party of more than 10 people, and not one person said that their food was good, only fair. I had high hopes, and all of the staff were great but sadly the food wasn't. I would not recommend and we will not return.

Went for the first time on Saturday, the location is great, the food was very good, meals were hot and tasty. Our waiter (Noah) is the best he just took that extra step a couple of times that just leaves you saying "I will come back". Music was perfect and the views on the water relaxing.

The entrees are just not worth the price. The taste and care was not there. Great view of the water and live music was ok. But $25 for red snapper with Bourbon Glaze that was a sweet cocktail sauce and tasteless slaw was very disappointing. Out side chairs are extremely high and difficult to get in a out of.
