    We had out of town guests visiting us and celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary. The food was fantastic and our server, Hayden, was exceptional. We appreciated his attention to detail and level of service. Thank you for a great experience. We’ve been in 3 times in the last 4 weeks and we’ve always been pleased.

    Overall a nice dining experience for a birthday. The Filet was cooked to perfection. The Brie w fruit selection was a great appetizer, and for sure the chocolate brownie w/ walnuts and vanilla bean ice cream was the perfect touch to wrap up the night.

    The sea bass special was just ok. The fish was IMO undercooked and frankly not worth the price which was high. The ambience was very good with a beautiful view of the river. Parking was very easy with valet. The wait service as great. The bathroom needed a good cleaning and some Clorox cleanup. This was a complete turn off for the price of the meal I’d expect a cleaner restroom. Very disappointing

    Wow, the food, service, craft cocktails & the atmosphere. This is our new favorite place & will be back soon & often. Our server was Lauren, who is top notch 20 stars & stars the manager Maddy who was very friendly & welcoming. The atmosphere is wonderful. The scallops, escargot, Shrimp Louisiana & Cobbler were outstanding. We loved the little dog & bone garnishes on drinks & incorporated with the food.

    Always great food and service. I really can’t think of a better place in Brevard or Indian River counties. And sometimes you’re treated with watching the Dolphins in the Indian river right from your table.

    Always a wonderful dining experience. However, we were seated on the window (perfect) but near the open kitchen. A lot of banging pans, which is why I didn't give noise level 5 stars.

    Fabulous 3 course meal. Our reservation was for 2:00. We ordered from the special lunch menu. My Shrimp Florentine was great! Biggest shrimp I've ever seen. I could not finish it. But I ate all my dessert (wasn't going to) Coconut Cream Pie was heavenly. My husband's 6 oz. filet was cooked perfectly. It came with mashed potatoes and broccoli. We don't go out much, but when we do, it's usually The Yellow Dog. It's just simply The Best!
