This is a nice restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere.The menu for outdoor seating is good but limited. Their crab/ spinach dip is tremendous! Service was good.

Today was the first and last time I will visit. My husband and I stopped by mid afternoon while we were out riding to relax for a bit and grab a bite to eat. There were plenty of open tables as it was neither prime lunch or dinner time. Loved the relaxed, beach atmosphere and Jimmy Buffet style music. Neither... More

There is no reason that the full menu should not be offered outside as well as inside. The kitchen is the same. And it is no further for the servers.

On a drive to visit the Pagoda in nearby Reading we happened upon this out of the way restaurant/outside bar while listening to the local radio station broadcasting from there. Upon arrival the outside area was fairly busy but we were able to find 2 seats at the bar. The wine selection offered was one brand only (Yellowtail) and when... More

I called several times to arrange a party reservation. Left messages with several people with no call back. Finally I called a few days before to just reserve a table for our party size. When we arrived we were told to go ahead outside. The woman outside said she couldn't seat us! So we went inside to sit. However apparently... More

Basically, it's a TGIFriday's with a poorly done pirate theme and less menu selection! The surrounding scenery is beautiful on it's own. However, the establishment decided to plop a pirate bar in the middle of the mountains. The decor is spot on and everything is very clean. It actually felt a little theme park-ish to me; I half expected Jack... More

The Food is ok, the service is ok, but the reason to go is the Atmosphere. It gives you a tropical feel in boring PA. The Drinks are amazing. It has a huge outside area with tiki torches everywhere, not to mention fake palm trees. If your gonna do dinner do lobster night , makes you feel more like your... More

This place is good for a drink and nothing more. Food and service is poor. Have a drink and eat a burger at the bar, you will feel at home.
