Eggs Benedict

This place has the best breakfast!!! I cook myself and this place is worth stopping at!! Yes there's other bad reviews but the waiter/ waitress doesn't reflect my meal.. If you want the best eggs Benedict on the planet, then stop in there and try it!!



Dumpy, smelly, slow, rude, room tempature - fried food.

Oh yes, the baathrooms are absolutely filthy and my wife saw several large cockroaches cruising around. The manager stopped by and she mentioned the roaches, and he shrugged and said "This is Florida. Bugs ar epart of the landscape"

So, it is safe to say -we wont be back. Ever.

TERRIBLE customer service

We've been to Fresco s numerous times over the last few years and have enjoyed it very much. We've taken friends and family there when they visit from out of town on a regular basis. Today my husband and I went and after standing at the front waiting to be seated while we were ignored and other people walked around us and seated themselves, we decided to do the same. The waitstaff marched over and told me to move and that they didn't believe we were going to order food because my husband had gone to the bar to get our drinks (we were certain we would have to wait on those due to the failure of the waitstaff to even acknowledge us up until this point). Despite me telling them that we *were* going to order food, they insisted we were not and that we had to move. We left. My husband called and complained to the manager when we got home. The manager told him that it was our fault, not theirs. We will not be going back. Ever. Fresco s should think about the way they treat customers. They were busy today, but every other time we've been there they haven t been. They can t afford to treat people poorly.

Bartender Very Rude

Male bartender should be working in a downtown corner bar. He has absolutely no manners. He actually banged a bottle of beer 3 times on the bar in front of me and told me this means do you want another one. Frescos is better than this.
Usually the service is friendly.

great outdoor dining

it you are a diner and think red lobster or bonefish is good, then stay there. this is for more upscale diners who know what they are paying for

Spicey, Sewer Smell, but good steaks

Wife and I ate here last night. Steaks were good, but everything has hot chili powder, and other hot sauce on it. If you like hot spice food then I guess it's ok. Smells outside like sewer, and the food was expensive for what we had. Service was fine. Don't think we'll go back though.

Avoid eating here, just drinks....

Ate her last weekend with my girlfriend. Pasta was marginal and fish was not fresh. Service was not good. Waitress brought our bill to us before I could even tell her I wanted another drink. I think restaraunt is highly overated. Go get yourself some carabas and come here later for drinks, maybe.

Great view & location, but you pay for it

Grouper dishes were fresh & delicious, but overall a little overpriced for everything we got. Service was horrendous, we waited 35 minutes after we were done eating for our server to show up.
View was awesome, right on the pier & music was ambient. Good restaurant to check out, but we definitely won't be regulars.
