The Birds are quite entertaining actually and if you don't wanna mess with it just sit inside. The location was terrific we loved the patio the food was good...its a Laundry's what else would I expect.... More

Had a large party so the food was not quite hot when it all arrived. Good flavor and presentation though. Nice to be on the water but not the greatest views.

Our group of 8 stopped there the night before a cruise. Food was good, service was excellent and it was warm enough to sit outside on the deck.The shrimp wrapped in bacon and cheese I think that were served as an appetizer were De-licious!

Our server recommend the Golden Tile Fish. I agree it was wonderful. Our party of 15 was well cared for, and all served at the same time. Everyone left happy.
