Best thing here is definitely the view of Monkey Island. Worst thing is..everything else. I don't even know where to begin. Prices are very high for the area. The place is in desperate need of repair in AND out. It would b ok if itcwasrustic but it was just dirty and outdated..and very tacky. If the food was good I could overlook almost all of that. After the long and I do mean LONG wait it was not good. Fries were cold. Seafood seemed frozen and just fried to death and greasy. Yuck. Clam strips were like rocks. Worst of all the clam chowder was actually cold when it got to us. How can that be? It didn't even come out first as requested. Came with our meals. For as long as this place has been around I am surprised of thetrainwreck experience we had!! it seems as though it is actually being run by the monkeys !!!

One of the Best waterfront views in Citrus County.

The service and quality of food is aweful! We were a table of 6 and 3 in our group were diabetics. They specifically requested UN sweet iced tea. The waitress brought them all sweet tea. When she returned we informed her of the mistake and she laughed and said they must be out of UN Sweet and walked away.

The Food is pre-packaged frozen with nothing being freshly made. All u can eat Shrimp with linguini special has a disclaimer that you cannot have seconds until ALL of the first plate is gone. The plate came out with 8 medium shrimp and about 2 pounds of linguini.
