We had a few wonderful evenings here. Great food and excellent service. The setting is beautiful as it sits right on the water. Nice view of some beautiful boats. Highly recommended.

Though we were very warmly received, the overall atmosphere was rather stiff. It was difficult to relax. We were seated outside where the view over the water right at sunset was beautiful. We were barely able to hear the nice jazz music playing inside. My...More
