we wanted some appetizers and the menu is very limited. the order of sweet potato fries was minimal and the fries were real small so most of them were over done. we weren't impressed with them or a tomato/relish appetizer. disappointed.

We arrived and sat outside on the patio. Waitress took 17 minutes to answer my repeated calls to come over and bring menus. Having read previous reviews citing bad service, I set my phone's timer just to see. When she did, her first bark at...More

Cheap and cheerful - always feed my crew here when in the harbor. Nice folks, big portions, save room for dessert.
