Today started out a little like the days past with green in the water. About 9am the water started clearing up.

The puppy and I decided to go lay out while the hubby was inside working.

Every couple hours a helicopter would fly over. I assume this was in effort to keep an eye out for oil. Sometimes it looked like this one other times it was a army one with camo all over it and other times it was a coast guard one.

When the hubby got off work the water was super choppy and it looked like it was gonna try and rain. We tried to go out in the water and float on our floats but after 15 minutes of feeling like we where getting beat up by the waves we gave up and went in to shower and head out to dinner. Tonight we picked The Back Porch. We got a free appetizer coupon the other day when I signed up for Pompano Joe’s email loop. The Back Porch is one of 5 sister restaurants of Pompano Joe’s.

There was a 10 minute wait so we headed to the bar. I tried the Pina Colada. It was ok, but I don’t think worth the $6.50 price I paid.

Next thing we knew our name was called so we headed to our table upstairs. Most all of the tables are along the back side of the restaurant so you have a good view of the ocean. We started out with the Smoked Tuna Dip. uhhh yeah it’s totally not what you think, in fact it was a little nasty. I like tuna salad, but this was just plain funky. The waitress saw me taking pictures of everything and when she asked how we liked it, both my hubby and I said “uh not at all”. She quickly offered to take it back and asked if we would like something else instead. Hubby had a hankering for onion rings so we settled on that.


The basket of onion rings was huge. We had so much we took home half of the basket.

For the entree I ordered the Grouper Florentine (grouper loaded with their popular crab meat and spinach stuffing, baked golden brown). We both liked this one even though we had to sprinkle a little extra seasoning on it.

He ordered the Lobster Stuffed Mahi-Mahi (Mahi-Mahi wrapped around lobster stuffing, broiled and topped with their signature lobster cream sauce). The whole fish….I’m talking sauce and all had no flavor it tasted like nothing.

We gave this place one last chance by taking home a slice of key lime pie they had on special. This was another disappointment.

My overall reaction to this place? Don’t waste your time or money here. Stick to Pompano Joe’s where the food is much better.

We headed back to the condo to walk the puppy on the beach and enjoy the sunset.
