Very quaint little restaurant with exceptional food. When you have a foodie with you this is by far the best option in Bradenton Beach. One of the few I would go back to for a evening meal.

I am not sure if music is available daily. Places around the corner or down the block had music as early as 5. Music was over by 10 on the nights we were out.
