Our recent visit was very disappointing after having reslly enjoyed this restaurant last year. We went for dinner on Easter Sunday night and after waiting 12 minutes after being seated a server finally came over to greet us saying he hadn't seen us and wasn't told we were there. (He served a table of 11 right. Ext to us.) service... More

The place is beautiful and situated right on the bay. We had a large party for a birthday celebration and we're seated in a beautiful spot. Just perfect. The person that worked with our party planner was amazing, very helpful and very welcoming and accommodating. It all fell apart when it came to our server. He was fumbling, out of... More

Delicious food in a beautiful setting. Food not only delicious but presented in a masterful manner. Watching the boats pull in and out of the docks a pleasure.

Enjoyed two lunches on the outside seating area. Nice variety on the menu, and a good value. Servers were friendly and pleasant. Meals were delicious and portions were good size. We would definately visit again - perhaps for a dinner!

This hard to find detailed gem is a real find. We have had brunch downstairs on the deck (pets ok) and lovely dinners overlooking the bay many times. Happy hour is great and they have a wonderful dinner menu. This is a classy venue!

The food was excellent. The service was a tad bit slow, but it was happy hour (half off everything) so they were busy. Great value for the money. The crab cakes were my favorite.

After traveling we were looking for a lunch spot and came across this wonderful spot. The iced tea was outstanding The staff downstairs was great and the food was great. Very friendly and worth the money. We sat on the deck by the marina and watched the boats go by. Don't miss this one!
