Some frequently asked questions…

What does "locally-sourced" actually mean?

Being on the Gulf Coast of Florida, we take great pride in serving only the freshest of seafood. Where possible, we source our vegetables, seafood, poultry, and beef from local fisherman and farmers. We believe that part of being a citizen in the community includes supporting the local economy wherever it is practically possible.

Is there waterfront boat access?

Yes. We have riverside access and docks available for your convenience. Just pull up, dock and enjoy a fantastic dining experience.

Do you have a Kids' Menu?

Not at the moment. Because every dish is made to order, any dish can be reduced to a more kid-friendly portion though.

Can you accommodate Vegan or special dietary needs?

Most of the time, yes. Because every dish is made by our trained Chefs, many times recipes substitutions or exclusion can be made. Inquire with your server upon arrival for more details.
