The view from the dining area overlooking the wharf was fantastic. The food was also pretty good. Service was average but we went at an odd time of day. Definitely worth a try.

Food was humdrum, service was average, prices were average, all in all this is not as good as the East Coast. I guess I am spoiled by the great food in Boston. My clam chowder tasted like it came in a can.

Its at the Fisherman's Wharf...More
