AAA Inspector Notes
Classic Historic. Housed in a building that once was a supper club and gambling casino, this restaurant sits alone on an island in the Intracoastal Waterway and has been a source of rich history since the 1920s. This is the oldest restaurant in Broward County and has catered to such notable icons as the Vanderbilts, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Joe Namath, Mariah Carey, Errol Flynn and George Harrison. Diners arrive here via a complimentary boat ride, which is just a short ride from shore. The restaurant resembles an old crab shack with a long and narrow dining room divided into three charming sections. The walls are adorned with newspaper articles and pictures of the restaurant and the surrounding area dating back to the 1920s. The menu specializes in seafood and the staff always suggests the mahi, grouper, Maine lobster, yellowtail snapper or crab cakes. Nightly specials often include a steak dish for those steering away from seafood. The staff is seasoned and have worked here for many years. They know the menu inside and out and are always quick to recommend a dish per your mood.
