We were there with another couple for dinner. It is one of their favorites, and they were bringing us as we were guests visiting them for the weekend. We had a reservation, and they were great to get us seated as quick as possible outside....More

The bread is so cheesy and flavorful but don't fill up! You definitely want to get the fluffy Tiramisu dessert. The fish specials are always excellent and you can't beat the view.

Dinning on the back porch of this Italian restaurant is my still favorite! The bread service is so good! The salad is hearty. You can not go wrong with vast entree options and large wine list! Service is steady and view of marina- stunning!

Joe's open's right at 5 and our tour was at 6:30. They do not take reservations so we reserved the party room for our group of 9. We had a great meal at a lovely venue.
