No-- this place is not fine dining but rather fairly limited standard pub fare. However, what they do serve, they do right! Love the hand cut fries!!

The burgers are absolutely fantastic. Homemade ranch dressing is thick and creamy. Loved it. We were dying for a good burger and found it. Plus Mondays are $2 off burgers and we ate and bill was under 25$. Highly recommend.

For decades, this is been the place to go for Friday night happy hour. It's called the taco toss. Just a view of the falling sun setting is enough to make it a fabulous evening, but friends and homemade orange and grapefruit crushes make it even better experience. Very cheap tacos/nachos and even a seafood bar can feed hungry happy... More

stopped in for lunch after check-in at Hyatt. Burgers were good, beer was cold and waitress was friendly. Nice view of bay, and pretty sunsets from the deck.

Friendly staff, very dog-friendly, too. Provided the dogs with a big bucket of water; were OK with dividing one entree for the two dogs. Right on the bay-nice view.
