Group of 6 had the pleasure of sitting on the roof top deck at one of the glider tables for Mothers Day lunch. Wonderful day, great weather, perfect views and good food. Nothing fancy, heavy on fried food, but still tasty and enjoyable.

Do you allow dogs on the outdoor patio? Would you consider doing a fundraising for a local dog rescue group? Do you close the outdoor patio for the cold weather?

Sorry I can't help either. Call the pier is all I can say. Don't remember seeing any animals on the pier when I was there.
