Found by accident during white marlin open. Went during daytime at weigh-in dock to check out booths. Could not get near it during evening weigh-in periods, very crowded! seems a little upscale but bar prices were fine. Wife and I enjoyed the time spent there. We will go back this year.

Food was excellent. We arrived a little later so they had to make some more of the soup special - it was worth the wait. Nice atmosphere and our server Kelsie was very attentive. Thank you.

This water front restaurant and pub has consistently provided excellent food, service, and ambiance on our vacations! Set in a private community on the bay, it's a nice walk from the commotion of the main drag, but worth the trip.

Great atmosphere right in a marina. Food was OK but limited in availability and the children's menu could use some work. Not many options and no milk available. Still had a great family time but not sure we would go again.

We didn't realize we'd have to walk as much as we did but the meal we had certainly made it worthwhile. The chicken sandwich with the crab dip was amazing. I would have just eaten a bowl of the crab dip. They worked with the food allergies in my family and everyone enjoyed. The Orange Crush was delicious.

Located in a residential area, you would not expect to find such an amazing view, great atmosphere, and delicious food in the middle of condos. Try the Tuna steak salad! Directions: Go down 14th street towards the bay. Walk past the guard at the entrance and go left. Turn left on the first pathway you see and head right. You'll... More

My family and I visited this quiet little restaurant nestled in a peaceful condo community on the bayside. We were greeted immediately by one of the servers and seated in a spacious and breezy patio area. Everything about our lunch was top-notch! The drinks, appetizers and sandwiches were delicious and generously portioned. I highly recommend the tuna steak sandwich. Our... More

This little restaurant is a real find in old O.C. and it is located on the harbor in a condo community. We went twice while in O.C. Everything we got was EXCELLENT: crab cakes (no filler), fried soft crabs, tacos, grilled all beef hot dogs and Orange Crush! Don't miss the Reel Inn. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend.

I went here last year and it was so comically bad I decided to give them another chance. Poor decision. They are located in a gated community and all the spaces were full. We had to find street parking and walk about 15 minutes back. I ordered a Miller Lite and it was almost warm, not a good start. Serve... More
