It's just too expensive

I want to love this place because of the location and the menu, but it's just so overpriced. The service is good. Very casual atmosphere.

We ducked into this restaurant for lunch on the waterfront when it was raining and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the lunch and the excellent service provided by Adam. The heaters quickly warmed us up from the cold rain outside. They lunch portions were generous and tasty and were served in such a friendly atmosphere.

With all outdoor dining, they've got it covered with space heaters for chilly evenings. I'm a big fan of live music and eating on the water. My dinner was good - blackened grouper with a side of slaw. Wide drink selection and a server who offered helpful suggestions!

If you can stand the stench of sewage while you try to eat OUTSIDE (as that's all they have for seating) then carry on. I found the food overpriced and overcooked with pounds of breading to boot. NOT A GOOD MEAL!

We just tried to have lunch here. Got a table right away. Waited a little while for the waiter and then ordered 2 sodas and a pizza ( which was the special). After a half hour the waiter brought out plates for the pizza. After another half hour we left 5 dollars to cover the cost of our sodas and... More

We were two for lunch on a weekday in October 2015. The setting was picturesque on the water with terrific bay views, which turned out to be the best part of eating here. A starter of Shrimp Corn Chowder was terrific. Fried Calamari, billed on the menu as "fresh", was the same frozen Calamari that every average restaurant serves. Fish... More
