This was the closest restaurant to our hotel when we arrived and honestly, it was a "no problem" type of place. Nothing fancy. Typical "formula" family style restaurant. Food was decent. Got 20% off for being guest of Oceanside Marina suites, and waitress was pleasant and attentive. We'd go again.

Bar upstairs is nice for happy hour. Nice location at the harbor and wonderful seating to watch the boats come in.

Wonderful location on the harbor. We had the platter of grilled vegetables as an appetizer. We had the steamed clams (very tasty in a wine sauce, but mostly shells, as the clams must have been at the bottom of the saucepan) and the glazed salmon with vegetables and coconut rice. Very nice dinner, apart from the small quantity of clams,... More

The restaurant sits at the end of the harbor and has a great view through large windows. The decor is out dated and a little run down. The service is fair and the happy hour prices are good. The calamari was tender but it had a lot of breading on it. Clam chowder was good but had very little clams.... More

These guys do a low cost, decent happy hour with $3 appetizers and wine or beer. You sure can't get a better price, and for bar food it's pretty good. The grilled fish tacos are tasty, as are the chicken lettuce wraps. An added bonus is the view of the harbor. Time if for sunset - a great spot to... More

This restaurant is dated, some furnishings are in bad repair, the food is tolerable and so is the service, but only just. Do yourself a favor and patronize one of the other fine establishments around the harbor.

We had a beautiful day on the 2nd Level of the restaurant over looking the harbor facing East. Very nice, relaxing, and tranquil. We were in a laid-back mood and enjoying the day. We were the only ones there when we arrived. We ordered a variety of items from the menu. These included Fish Tacos, Spring Rolls, Caesar Salad, Sweet... More

We were on vacation and booked dinner here on Valentine's Day. We also sprung for the dinner for two price-fix menu. It took nearly an hour to arrive which they apologized for. The beef was so rare we had to send it back - like raw! An the lobster tails (4) were so gross from a flavor but especially a... More
