Our family loves to go there after the beach since we can eat outdoors in our bathing suits and enjoy the amazing view. If Matt is there, he is the BEST waiter, but we really get good service from their outdoor staff. We started going regularly when Matt overheard it was our anniversary and brought over a complimentary dessert. It was a very nice touch you rarely see these days. You can buy an expensive steak or eat a $14 hamburger (which for the beach is cheap), and if you don't like it they will take it back and make it right. Their truffled mac & cheese is wonderful. What you can't get anywhere else is the amazing view of Government Cut as the cruise ships are leaving or the sun is setting. After or before your meal walk down to the beach, it's stunning.

I was invited to dinner by a friend who wanted to try a new place on the beach, that someone had recommended. The place, Red the Steakhouse. I ate the boneless Rib-Eye and experienced something I had not felt in a while... complete satisfaction and very pleased taste buds. It also had a positive effect on my friend, who ate grilled Salmon but went there the following night to have the boneless Rib-Eye. The service was "ok" but the food was much better. I think the waiters need better training. The restaurant was half empty, so there was no other excuse. One waiter was so anxious to serve that he came on to us like a herd of cattle, with the specials of the day and his recommendations. Overall, it was good enough to visit a second time, for my anniversary.
The best view in town and their mojito is great. I bring all the out-of-towers here because it never disappoints. We can go to the beach then sit outdoors in our bathing suits and have a salad/burger ($13-25) or steak/seafood ($28 and up). Getting a good waiter is important, and while we haven't had a bad one yet, Gabriel is our current favorite. He's taken care of us on 3 occasions so it's a solid assessment. They get busy so have reservations or enjoy a walk around the beautiful area while waiting for your table. Sunset and when the cruise ships leave (5:30-6pm) are among the best times to go and it's usually less crowded.
