We've been to this restaurant a couple of times. It is a romantic place - In good weather you can eat outside and watch the sun go down on Miami across the way. A little more expensive than we usually go for. They did have early bird specials which were a bit more reasonable.

We went on Valentine's Day in 2001 (forgetting that it was Valentine's Day) and the place was packed to the gills and they had to have valet parking because the parking lot was full. They lock the gates to the parking lot after the restaurant closes at night. So if you park here for the marina at night you won't be able to get your car in the morning.

For some reason (maybe they don't want boat people in the restaurant), there is no way you can come here by boat as the docks do not have enough water to float a boat and there are rocks right off the restaurant.

Open: MON-THU 11:30 am-11 pm.
FRI-SAT 11:30 am-12 am.
SUN 11:30 am-11 pm.

Favorite Dish: For Valentine's Day they had a special which included everything - everything meant you got wine or champagne with the meal. We ate outside which was a little chilly. You wanted to warm yourself on the candle at the table. It was also so dark we had to borrow a flashlight from the waiter to read the menu.
