Atmosphere appeared nice as we walked up but as we approached the hostess stand(that we had to walk through the restaurant to get to passing a few employees) nobody was there to greet us or give us direction on what to do or where to sit.

I really enjoyed the restuarant. Food is reasonably priced, drinks are reasonably priced. Music was great. Service was pretty good but the food is not great, it's not bad, it's just not something very special. Appetizers were tasty but small (callamari, carribean shrimp). I would return, but more for the ambience and music than anything.

I have given this place several tries. It seems to me that it is simply poorly run and a highly dysfunctional layout. The place is like a bowling alley as it is long and narrow with a walk to the restroom having me pack a lunch. The food was passable but the service was not to be believed. It took... More

Love going here with my wife for a beverage at the end of the day to watch the sunset! Food is mediocre as is the service for food. Bartenders are awesome and friendly. Plenty of seating in or outdoors. Upstairs has a nice sports bar theme. Drawback: they always close early, so if you are seeking a late night beverage,... More

Although I live really close to this place, I went out with family for dinner there for the first time recently. This place has two levels, boats for rent, docks for people to pull in their boats while they eat. There is a bar and a lot of excellent food. The prices are very reasonable and nice for families without... More

Nice view on dock and marina. Great place to relax with cocktail, however...there is NO Happy Hour prices to speak of. Better prices for cocktails else where.

Decrepit does not equal charming. French Dip-can't find words for what that meat looked like. Fried Grouper Sandwich-stale bun, old tomato, small piece of over fried fish. Seared Ahi Tuna app-what was I thinking-ball of wasabi was so old it was nearly dried out completely and no horseradish flavor left at all within it. Drinks? Waiter says not to order... More

Captain Jacks - a great place for food and drinks on the water. Bring your 4 legged friends and get ready to be lazy and relaxed.

Without a doubt the most unfriendly place I have ever eaten or had a drink. They pay no attention to detail on any level. Just save your money. Nuff said.
