Fun venue since we sat on the dock. Pretty view. Service was friendly altho not on top of things. Food was fine. Somewhat pricey but they were accommodating to my requests which I appreciated.

This location is awesome and with a beautiful view. The food is good and somewhat pricey. I like the shrimp and grits. Music on certain nights with open bar. Singles, couples, and girls night out and just a place to relax and have a drink.
