My wife and I dropped in here after visiting the nearby Anna Maria Island beaches. We are seafood fanatics and thoroughly enjoyed the local wild caught grouper. We tried it with both the Fulford and the Pecan style preparation.

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.
