We missed the lunch hour, so we tried the bar menu. Although the menu is a bit more limited, they still provide a great selection of products, including great seafood options.

Fantastic holiday night. The Illumin ocean lighted boat parade went right by the wind and sea. We had perfect seats to enjoy the view. The waiters were amazing and polite even though the place was wall to wall people. I had macadamia nut mahimahi. It was perfect. Crisp on the outside with moist fish inside.

Staff is attentive, food is definitely good but far from fine dining and the prices are reasonable considering the real estate. Won't be disappointed but won't walk out thinking you had the greatest experience either.

Went here for lunch. Had the Clam Chowder, which I think is some of the best available. Drinks and sliders were excellent also.

The only thing I really love about this place is the view. The food is mediocre and the drinks are okay but the restaurant itself is overdue for a serious makeover. The plastic tablecloth some plastic chairs I understand due to the location next to the ocean but this place is been around a while and just seems tacky to... More

I've had Mai Tais all over the world and nothing has ever come close to the ones served here. Service is good and the food is average. Except for the chips and guacamole, that's outstanding. Expect to wait up to 45 minutes for an outside table on a nice day but there's plenty of seating inside with nice window seats... More

came to this restuarant as it was open on thanksgiving and was serving a traditional thanksgiving meal. The meal was ok. Vegetables were not cooked but the turkey and stuffing was fine. Had pumpkin pie for dessert which I guess is an acquired taste and I have not acquired it yet. Wine was good though and everyone seemed to be... More

Went there with family this weekend. Waterfront restaurant, service was great and a nice selection for the Buffet Brunch. Loco Moco, made to order eggs and waffles, Bacon, Sausage, Biscuits and Gravy, fresh fruit and pastries. Good value for $16 per person, does not include a drink.

To get to the restaurant, outside dining an arrow points you to a lane to the left of the entrance, but once there you find great accommodations for dining outside by the marina. The wait staff is friendly,but from there it is a downhill experience. There were 4 of us and we ordered drinks and lunch Two of us ordered... More
