Beautiful waterfront restaurant at the Riviera Dunes Marina in Palmetto next to the convention center. We feature fresh seafood and other creative dishes in a casual setting, often with live music. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Please call direct for groups larger than six.

***PLEASE NOTE - We do offer outdoor seating on our spacious patio that seats well over 100, however for reservations we can only accept "REQUESTS" for outdoor seating and cannot guarantee outdoor seating for your reservation as we have no control over how long parties stay in their seats. If you request outdoor seating, we will make every effort to accommodate your request. If we cannot, we have ample seating in our 3 dining rooms and indoor bar or we can put you on a waiting list for your outdoor table. Our outdoor bar area is first come first serve which is another option. We appreciate your understanding on this.

    Great blackened grouper sandwich! Great fries! Something did not taste right with the water they served, which also made the tea and other drinks taste strange. Table was dirty when we were seated. Marina view is nice and staff was friendly.

    Old looking with chairs that were broken at the outside table. It was actually brunch but we never got that menu and didn’t know until we had ordered. Won’t be back

    Not sure why this restaurant came up in looking for best restaurants in the Bradenton area on Open Table. Wanted to go to happy hour for $2.00 oysters and drink specials. Sat in the bar area so our waiter was the bartender who was very nice. Told him that we wanted oysters and Kendall Jackson Chardonnay, he didn’t know there were oysters at happy hour for 2 dollars (??). Brought us wine and said that KJ wasn’t a wine on the list for happy hour; menu stated wines were $2.00 off. Oysters were fine and we asked for more wine, he gave us something else and failed to tell us- it was AWFUL. Ordered a seafood stir fry for main and it was like a frozen dinner-downright AWFUL. He was genuinely surprised when we told him it wasn’t very good. The restaurant had maybe 4 other parties while we were there, obviously not popular. Why, why, why did this make the top 10 restaurants in Bradenton on Open Table???

    Food was great for all three people. The quality of the food and the portions were great. Outside dining stands out here. Nice water view with numerous boats and comfortable seating.
