Been coming here for years. They have the BEST Seafood, and the view is always great. Even when crowded, like during Bike week, they expand outdoors, have live bands and we always have a great time

Great river view and ambiance. I had the coconut shrimp which was perfect- great taste, and not over cooked. I tasted my husband's triggerfish, it was delicious also.
