Very disappointed with first visit to this place. We wanted it to be a hit because the vibe/ environment was really cool. Took 10 minutes for a sever to show up and was never asked for refills. Food noticeably sat under the warmer too long. Fries were old and cold. The server struggled throughout the night and brought my wife's... More

OK food. OK prices. Server was great, but nothing super fancy and the food was just ok - lots of deep fried options. Drinks were poured well - not underserved there. Do enjoy the novelty of sitting on the boat.

A group of 14 of us went here a couple of weeks ago for my daughter's birthday. She picked it hoping to have as much fun as she'd had on a previous visit and liked the atmosphere. She had called ahead to ask if we could make reservations- no, they don't accept them but she was told to call back... More

The food here is nothing to rave about, bar food, so we got what we expected with the sampler, nothing special. But, I've never not enjoyed sitting by the water and listening to a great local band. Older crowd and many up dancing. An enjoyable evening!

It did not feel like I was in Ohio when I am sitting here. The entire roof of the place is thatch and there was a breeze the entire time. There are tables that are on the deck and sitting in some sand. All are under cover. We had a few appetizers and a sandwich, all were good. They have... More

Traveled there by boat,took 20 minutes to find a waiter. Food took 45 minutes and was very bad. Gray burger, soggy fries, nothing was very edible out of 4 plates.

HORRIBLE experience! The bartender was extremely rude, unknowledgeable, and unprofessional. She spent most of her time smoking and conversing with her co-workers, instead of taking care of customers. And after we confirmed that it was indeed happy hour, we were charged full price for our beers. Additionally, the food quality is terrible, and also overpriced. Will never go back again.... More
