View of the bay and great food!

Get your reservations for busy weekends if you want to eat here but its worth it. The fresh fish is great and the seafood salad is really full of seafood. Nice wine list and the service was good. Definitely a nice evening.. try for sunset!

We had the lobster and scallops. Both meals were wonderful. I would recommend reservations. On Sunday night we were lucky to get a table. If you have to wait it will be worth it.

Had the oysters, crab cakes and scallops for our entrees (there were 5 scallops in the dish and definitely generous size portion). The main I had the pacific fish. Oysters were fresh. Crab cakes were flavourful and creamy. Definitely a great place. Fresh seafood. Beautiful view from the restaurant. We arrived at 8pm but had to wait half an hour... More

We ate here on our last night in the States. Excellent food, impeccable service and a nice, homely location overlooking the bay at sunset. Would highly recommend!
