We are from Texas and visiting friends for the weekend and wanted outdoor places with views! We ate outside for lunch at the tiki bar. The drinks are good and the food was good. I recommend the BBQ shrimp in a bread bowl and the smoked fish dip. Very tasty. They have live music outdoors which is always a plus!

Delicious food, great atmosphere and my daughter loves watching the draw bridge go up and down from her table. One of my favorite places and when we move in a few months I will miss it!

We came here on the advise of the Marriorts concierge's recommendation for a "family friendly"restaurant. We were looking for pizza but he said that the seafood was pretty good to. Things to note: 1.

We got there about 4:30 so that we could be seated outside near the water. No wait for a table. The waitress was so pleasant and knowledgeable. She recommended the crab dip which was excellent. Hubby got salmon with grilled shrimp perfectly cooked, huge shrimp. I had chicken piccata with shrimp, it was delicious. We both took food home, huge... More

Happened to dine here twice in the past month. Once was during the day with a car club meet-up at lunch time. The next time was dinner with a different car club. The large parking lot is fabulous, making this place the perfect meet-up spot for auto-enthusiasts. I really enjoyed the lunch-time visit. We ate delicious seafood outside on the... More
