Nice location, very friendly, very popular restaurant with music, but the food was ordinary, not very tasty. It looked like onion rings came straight out of a no name frozen bag, tasteless breading, just like fish and chips. We don't think we will go back,...More

Enjoyed a DELICIOUS MEAL of seafood watching the sunset. My husband had a dinner of fish & chips that was lightly battered & nice portion size. I had a seafood casserole that was loaded with lobster & was very filling.
