Never knew this place existed. Right on the bay overlooking a beautiful marina. But the best part is the food. Great menu and a very eclectic wine list.

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.

$14 Bottomless Mimosas and a $15 Ultimate Bloody Mary (Tito's Vodka, 2 Bleu Cheese Stuffed Olives, 3 Large Blackened Shrimp, Celery, Pickle and a Lime). We also have live music.
I was wondering if you are having the Sunday Brunch on Easter Sunday and if so, would you take reservations?
