The food is not worth the price. The server was very nice but appeared to have to many tables. We got our appetizer and drink fairly quickly. After that it was down hill. It took a very long time to get the food. When we finally got the food it was cool, not hot n fresh. We did not complain,... More

It was worth the waiting time to be seated. The waiter was hilarious to roll with our jokes. Food and bar drinks were excellent enough for you to Facebook a pic while we enjoy our meal.

Went for lunch with friends and had a great one. The grilled chicken breasts and the fried chicken strips were outstanding. But the bacon cheeseburger was deluxe! One of the best I have had anywhere. Plus we got to sit by the windows and watch the pirate ship head out on a cruise. The wait staff was super attentive, making... More

We are here after a long day deep sea fishing and the good was good and portions were large. But we had what we thought was a new server. He was a little forgetful but it was ok we weren't in any kind of a hurry.
