Great fish tacos! My friend had shrimp tacos, I had fish. We had the crab dip as an appetizer - that was yummy too. Great atmosphere - waterfront dining is possible. The waiter was great too. Highly recommend eating here, I'd eat here again!

Mess Hall Cutie and this Mess Hall Officer visited this well liked restaurant again on a Friday.Mess Hall Cutie ordered Fish Tacos and I the Monk Fish Yucatan. Cutie had the Tacos before, but this was pleasantly different this time. A plate loaded with the fixin's: Grilled Mahi Mahi,, slaw, warmed home made corn tortilla's( served in a large covered ceramic serving vessel, Pico de gallo, sour cream. This was make your own from the ingredients. Had to order more Pico because there wasn't enough for the 3 corn tortilla's. ($0.75) for a plastic cup. If that size was served with original plate we wouldn't need to order more. This was the only complaint. The Monk Fish Yucatan served with plentiful fried chunks of Monk fish, plantains, black beans and rice, slaw and pico de gallo and tortilla chips. Quite good and plentiful. ($ 8.99). Tacos ($12.99). Soda ($2.99 with free refills). Cutie should have had a Beer. This Mess Hall would have been rated excellent if the pico quantity was sufficient with original plate. The troops were recommended to eat here during their time off base. Another Infantry Troop Mess Hall Review.

We were out running errands and stopped here yesterday. The place was packed. Always a good sign. Great menu. View was beautiful across the sound. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. Would definitely recommend for a good casual meal.
