Gross frozen fried food. One would think all that money invested right on the beach they would have fresh local food bit they dont. Half the employees are meth heads thought our waiter was going to drop a tooth in our food he scared the kids in our group hos name was james tough to look at. Seems like the owners are tripping over dollars to pick up dimes. Do your self a favor avoid this place go next door to oceans better food better service better view. The service and the food sucks at the crows nest and the help will scare you

Enjoyed lunch with a friend on the upper deck. Beautiful atmosphere and view. Coconut shrimp were tasty but not a fan of the clam chowder. It was so thick it was more like a dip. Drinks were great. So nice to have another choice that is oceanfront on New Smyrna Beach!

Started off with an appetizer of fried calamari and jalapeños. Calamari was perfectly cooked and delicious. It was before 7 on Friday so all appetizers were 1/2 off. Dinners come with 2 sides and their were a lot of choices. The baked beans were amazing. The blackened grouper was very good. The fried grouper had a tasty crust but there was too much of it. I probably won’t order it prepared that way again. The service was attentive and the food came out quick. Only suggestion would be if you choose a salad for one of your sides ask them to bring it out right away otherwise it comes out with your meal. We went upstairs after dinner and had a drink at the bar and listened to a great band. There is also dining upstairs and the view is cool! We will go again!

Stopped in to get drinks and lunch. They have a fantastic view on the upper deck. Drinks are on point along with the pretzels and calamari. Had to use the loo while we were here. I couldn’t get over how nice and clean they are. I asked to make sure we were A) in a beach town and B) are they always this nice. Had two great bartenders Mathew and Julia. We will definitely be back here again.
