Love this place. Great selection of beer and the food is amazing. Love the Artichoke and Crab dip. I crave this appetizer. I have never had a bad experience. Wait staff great, amazing food and wonderful view of the bay and Bridge of Lions.

Had the lobster and shrimp tacos... very good. Beer and cheese soup was de-lish! Others had stuffed meatballs and rangling shrimp, they said it was great as well. A little pricey but would visit again. Service was great.

Nice location, good view from our table, good service, but the food was just Ok. I ordered Grouper Oscar and it came as described on the menu but it was just average.

We had a nice dinner on the balcony. Watching the ships roll in and then we watched them sail away again. You can see the bridge open and close. Food is nomanlly priced and well served. Our server was Nikki (sp?) She was courteous, professional. Her sweet attitude and good service helps make this place a great stop. Lobster bisque... More

Had a late dinner and enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the water. Waiter was efficient, not chatty, but very restaurant was very busy. Decent selection of food options and once order was placed it came out quickly. Never felt rushed to leave and it was a wonderful place to enjoy a good meal, some wine and wonderful conversation.

Sat at the bar area. Atmosphere was nice and bartenders were friendly but service was slow during a quiet time of day.

Spent 25 mins looking for parking. Finally parked 4 blocks away in metered parking in the rain after having dropped my family at the door. Service was painfully slow, food was average, drinks were good. Cool atmosphere. If you're not staying within walking distance of restaurant, I'd say it's really not worth the parking headache.

It's been years since we have been here with 6 kids in tow...hubby and I decided to go while here and man were we not disappointed. We had lunch and the food was phenomenal. Hubby had a brisket sandwich and I had a chicken sandwich and when we both took our first bite our eyes rolled back in our head... More

Very nice restaurant with bar on street level and family dining with outdoor balcony next level up. Food was very good. Seafood tacos were great. Companions had the shrimp linguine,which they said was wonderful. They have good drink specials too and the atmosphere is like Melvilles from Cheers.
