The location on the dock at Shelter Cove is great. Menu is extensive. Salsa with the chips is OUTSTANDING! All the food is great including fish tacos.

We've been here twice within the past few years and had a similar experience both times. The wait staff is obviously overwhelmed and has long forgotten was good customer service is supposed to be. We were underwhelmed with the food. They are only dog tolerable,...More

The chips and salsa were some of the best we’ve had. My husband got the Cabo Wabo salad with steak - perfect low-carb dinner and very filling. I had the fish tacos, which were delicious. They have a good children’s menu, and my daughter’s burger...More
