We can only comment on the Eggplant appetizer, they called it a Eggplant Stack or something to that effect. It was a large portion & lightly battered, very good & filling.

This is a great place to relax and enjoy water and marina views. The food is good and the service is good as well. It can be very sunny and hot mid to late afternoon as the sun begins to set, but otherwise a great place for and afternoon or evening meal.

Casual or dressy, this place fits. Outdoor dining with a high-end marina view. Indoor formal but noisy. Fish and chips very good, salmon good, most items meet expectations.

Love this place. They always have live entertainment. Beautiful place with great service. Food is great too. Drinks tend to be a little over priced but what isn't these days. Enjoy

Whether it's lunch or dinner, the food at the Sailor's Return is always awesome! We like to go by boat and enjoy a fantastic lunch outside on the deck.
