Loved the fish taco's and the lobster. Will continue to go back for more. Excellent service. The restaurant is right on the water. And they have big tubes all tied together off the dock so you can sit in a tube and relax.

Nice spot to sit over the water, eat some good food and relax. The server was trying a little too hard to be funny, but you can't be mad at a guy for trying. Definitely worth a stop while in town.
