Food was tasteless and portions were small. We had fish & chips, the fish looked like cheap frozen fish and tasted about the same. Clam chowder had lots of clams but no taste. Nice view though

The food was great and a nice change from all of the fish that we had been eating at the other places. I thought the decor needed some updating but the people were very friendly and the food was good.

The food was average but our server was attentive & friendly. The Happy Face is located right next to the Salty Dawg Saloon. After we ate, we walked next door & checked out the Salty Dawg.
