went here for drinks

I enjoyed sitting at the bar having a few margueritas, which were very good. The bartenders are very attentive and pleasant. When I was there it was a young crowd, but a fun atmosphere. I did not try the food at all, since I was only there for a short time for drinks.

Just been there 2 days ago, and I have to say that, everything was very good, but above all, the best service ever. The main asset of this place is AMBER, she's just the best, Thank you so much for your hospitality.

We went to this place on a recommendation from the hotel and it was great. Casual atmosphere and great crab. They had $2 drink specials on also. Best margarita! We shared the crab pot for two and it could have fed 4!

This place if full of atmosphere ~ fun atmosphere! It's loud, so be prepared. There is indoor and outdoor seating ~ choose outdoor! The food is GREAT and priced pretty well. If you love seafood, this is the place to hang out with friends, family, strangers, you name it. And . . . there is a view of the ocean... More

I visit this location monthly if not more. The last two times I was waited on by Mckayla. She really needs to step up her services. Last week I ate here with a friend and we enjoyed the company of another table enjoying the lovely day and view. We all thought once it came to tip time that she was... More

The food is not good, server was obviously not happy to be there. I overheard another table say their food was cold. It was our first and last time going there. I ordered a salmon dish and the fish was not good, too fishy tasting which sounds odd but a well made and fresh fish meal doesn't taste fishy.

We sat outside in their enclosed patio and enjoyed watching people on stand up paddle boards and sail boats float by. There were some pretty entertaining birds to watch too. The waitress was very friendly and did a great impersonation of a seal for us! We had the best patron margaritas while we waited for our delicious steam pot sampler.... More
