The setting of this restaurant is lovely. If weather permits, sitting outside would be a great option - right on the water. Service was fine. The food was ok - nothing to write home about.

The nice view and people watching were the best thing about this restaurant. We had seafood and it was only O.K. Next time will go for drinks and appetizers only. Staff was attentive and nice. Décor a little worn and boring. Just an O.K. restaurant.

My wife and I along with several friends and family members ate lunch here on Tuesday August 12. Our friends have eaten here before and really like it. It looks a little care worn and could use some updating but some people may find the atmosphere part of its charm. We all had various seafood items, some fried and some... More

A group of us went for drinks and appetizers. We all agreed the appetizers were just okay, but the staff and service were terrific. Would go again for this reason, and stick to the cocktails.

Fresh fish, fast service, great location - what else could you want? Was there for lunch as we were passing through Georgetown. The crab dip was about the best I have ever had. Portions are not huge, but plenty for lunch. Note this is a dockside restaurant with mostly outside dining and very casual, but the view and the food... More

Pricey for some things, but good. One of only a couple of places open on Sunday. 20 minute wait at about 1:00 pm. Service was slow, but they make a great Bloody Mary.

Horrible seating. Your choices are by a bird cage in a small smokey room or outside where you cant see over the railing. My kids ate hamburgers which were good. I paid $25 for 10 pieces of fried shrimp and some frozen fries. My wife got chicken and was told they didn't have BBQ sauce. My bill was $65 and... More

I met a friend for drinks and a hors d'oeuvres and it was really nice with the outdoor seating -- even though it was warm, the breeze coming off the water felt good. The service was good, the atmosphere was fantastic, the prices were very reasonable and the crab soup was amazing. The other food I tried was good enough.... More

We waited an hour for two fryed fish sandwiches and a crabcake (which we didnt even get!) It was frustrating to see tables next to us eat, pay, get seated, and eat.
