Service was super slow even though we got there before the dinner rush. Delicious food. Very safe. Great view of the water for my kids.

The service was good. The food not so much. Had the salmon grilled in a pan. The only side I could have was the grilled veggies but they didn’t have them today so I had the steamed broccoli. It was very over cooked and the salmon had a metallic taste to it. Most of the menu is deep fried food or steamed seafood. Everyone else liked what they had but it was not an option for me because it was deep fried. Won’t be in a rush to go back.

They had a separate gluten free menu which was nice. Decent amount of options. I had a bucket of seafood with potatoes and corn. Waiter didn't know about gluten free much but she went back to talk to the chef to double check everything I ordered, which was nice. Didn't get sick and had a very fun time!

Very delicious! Staff knowledgeable about gluten and dairy free options. We eat there every time we come to Brandon and I never have a reaction.

Had high hopes for this place, but it started off with the shrimp in my steam pot not being cleaned properly. Manager was nice and took money off the bill. I thought all precautions were taken because my steam pot came out in a different thing than my husbands. After getting back to our condo, I was up sick all night. So, some kind of cross contact did end up happening and I ended up sick. This hasn't happened to me in a long time. I really was hoping for a good experience here.

Food was honestly terrible. Extremely bland, they didn’t even have salt on it. I was very disappointed.

I ordered from their gluten sensitive menu. Salmon, white rice, corn. Within an hour I was on the toilet and still having effects days later. Horrible experience 😭
