Looking for a great nautical spot this is it. Great views of the river. Fun loving people. Plenty of dockage or parking. Food was good. Beer cold. Everything you need for a great time.

Funky joint on the water. Looks like a place you would find on the drive to Key West. That's what makes this place work. We have gone by boat several times this summer. It is nice to have a place to grab a bite to...More
