Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Three of us ate here. My son was able to get a large gluten free seasonal salad. My husband and I had the lobster-shrimp soup and salad bar. It was very filling.

We were on a “Day Date” today near Jenson Beach. A waterfront restaurant was our goal. We arrived around 3 pm, in time for some Happy Hour half price bar appetizers. Honestly, we were charmed the moment we walked into this lovely place. Despite several...choices of indoor and outdoor dining areas, we landed in the back bar. It felt like being on a ship, with the wood decor and great view of the water. Our server, Lauren, was flawless—knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. Our cocktails were great. We each chose an appetizer (excellent) and a trip to the large, fresh salad bar. Unfortunately, there was no room for dessert, but I bet they are fabulous. We couldn’t find anything wrong with this place…I highly recommend it!More

We sat outside on a Monday around 1pm, Great view, waitress and staff very very nice and professional. Food was good. The tropical tacos were the best, would get them again, the lobster roll was not bad but the steak fries were the best item...on that plate and I usually not a fan of steak fries. The tuna appetizer was ok, would not get that again as it was cooked too much rather than seared. We would go again, maybe the tropical tacos and something else, but not the lobster roll or tuna, I am sure better choices on the menu for next visit.More

We can't complain about anything. The drinks , food and service was perfect. Mostly everyone at the table had the salad bar. It was fresh and filled with tons of options. Everyone fully enjoyed it. I was simple with a burger. It was great and...cooked perfectly. Th beer was cold, and the mixed drinks were delicious. We look forward to coming back soon.More

We stopped in on the recommendation of a local that we met…Great Idea! The ambiance is warm with old-Floridians mingling with northern snow exiles. The Happy Hour menu is excellent (get the Ahi tuna!) with many delicious options besides the Ahi. The bartender (Matt) is...a great guy. He makes an excellent Martini. Actually, everyone working there was very welcoming. It was such a pleasant experience we went back over a week later. Matt remembered us (he remembered what we drank and ate at our first visit!) We’re going to try to squeeze in a 3rd visit before the long trek back to New England.More

This restaurant was recommended by a lady we met on a tour. We were not disappointed! The salad bar is awesome. We had fried green tomatoes, Crab & Lobster Bisque, and coconut crusted shrimp... all were excellent choices. We will return! Our waitress, Michelle, was...very helpful and attentive.

First off, the place was packed! I was excited by this, thinking everyone knew first hand that it was great. Well, the Brie appie wasn’t warmed up enough and therefore wasn’t melted. Maybe it was because there were too many people. The lobster shrimp bisque...was more like a neutral tasting soup. My stuffed crab shrimp was tasteless. Virtually no crabmeat. I’m left most of it on the plate. My husband’s shrimp and Mac cheese was also tasteless. Sorry guys but $100 plus for two people for this was criminal. Service was great by the way. As was the gorgeous bay view.More

Absolutely perfect night. I am always hesitant to go to a restaurant with a large party. There is way too much to go wrong. However, We had 17 family and friends for dinner and it was flawless. All our food was fantastic (the corned beef...entree was the best I have ever had, hands down). From the appetizers and drinks to the view. It was a great night. Needless to say the history of the place is a great conversation piece. Thank you! We will be back soon.More

This is why it’s good to listen to the recommendations of locals! We visited last week while attending Cardinals spring training games and just loved it. The decor and ambiance is amazing, but the food is what really pleased us. The shrimp and lobster bisque...was very tasty. The salad bar is loaded with so many good things. Our entrees were delicious, and our server was friendly and knowledgeable. I would high recommend this restaurant and hope we’ll be able to visit again.More

This was the restaurant highlight of a road trip to the Stuart area. I was attracted by the location and nostalgic connection to Golden Age Hollywood. There is in fact a small "shrine" to Frances Langford, the glamorous founder, and her many celebrity connections. But...the place doesn't just trade on its past. The charm and grace of that era lives on in the current ambiance, including charming service, inventive cocktails and excellent food. The grilled mahi was a quantum above any I've had anywhere in Florida! I'd love to return for dinner when they have live music!More
