Wow what a place. Everything was delicious from the calamari to to is. Good wine and beer selection. More than excellent service and the place was full. Definitely a place to eat in Camas, and it's floating in the Columbia River another couple of stars....More

The location on the water is stunning. Food is just fair - some was good, some was a disappointment for the price. Kids loved because of the boats as you are in the marina on the water-- but pricier for what you get food wise....More

Unique floating location on the Columbia River at the Port of Camas/Washougal with views of Mt Hood. Gets very busy on the sunny days, best time to avoid a wait list is on the rainy days.
Open year round, closed on major holidays.
