Nice outdoor bar with a friendly atmosphere

Nice outdoor bar with outdoor games and great seating options in about 3 different areas. I LOVED the food. I have eaten here two times this month...crab quesadillas and seafood au gratin. They were fantastic.

This was our second trip here. We came last year and had incredibly slow service, and they managed to be even slower this year. Our table was dirty and the waiter did not seem to have any interest in taking care of us. Our son had the clam chowder and by the time we were in the parking lot, he... More

Best place to get a beer or drink on the island. Food is served all day and you can't go wrong with the clan chowder. Also one of the few places that gives correct change down to the penny :)

The food was okay, hamburger buns were very dry. The fried ice cream was delicious. Our table out on the deck was wobbly but the scenery was really nice. The woman 's bathroom was nasty. It smells of urine and the floor has a dip in it and the toilet paper was wet so I had to use a paper... More

Had a great meal and the server Katie could not have been more helpful. Easy to get to and plenty of parking. To top it all the sunset was awesome

I am a local and absolutely love what this place offers - a relaxing and fun atmosphere to go by car, bike or boat to eat or just have some drinks. Menu prices are very reasonable and food and service are outstanding. During the day and weeknights, this is a great place for families or just adults. Weekend evenings are... More

Had a small business lunch here today and sat on the patio overlooking the water. We were treated to a Dolphin show that included one coming out of the water holding a fish. Unexpected treat, and we were very thankful to have sat on the patio. The service was spectacular, and food was wonderful and plentiful. All-around great experience!

Went late afternoon after jet skiing. The menu is varied with all selections reasonably priced. Drinks were good and beer was cold. Service was very good. Great outdoor patio, deck area right on the water. Ample parking and lots of tables inside and outside on the deck. Would definitely go there again.
