It's not a restaurant, it's an abode
Could it be one of the massage huts on DePalm Island?

I looked at more photos at Tripadvisor of the "Old Man & the Sea" and compared it to the gorgeous hut in the video. I think, Randi made a great guess.
It seems to me there are many similarities like: the large rocks to the left, the large wooden beam on the left, the background (which seems like a little island), the lamps lining up the wooden deck. In the video, the wooden deck seems to be quite new and nicely stained, in the Tripadvisor photo, the wooden deck seems old and weathered. Maybe the gorgeous hut got a little TLC for the Travel Channel.
