Thanks to our server Noelia and the bartender for whipping up a Mexican Martini for me! It was perfection. The food was better than I expected. If you are dieting, try the grilled zucchini & squash instead of fries. The shrimp tacos were very tasty. We had a great time and the views of the bay were spectacular.

I should say I'm not a fan of bar food but this was pretty nice. I had the salmon and grilled veggies which was good. The portion size was just right and seasoning OK. This is a bar so don't expect too much fine dining. The atmosphere is great and the band was particularly good that night. Drinks of any... More

Came here twice during our stay. Friday night we ate a full meal and enjoyed every bit of it. We had a table for 7 and they were accommodating. The waiters would ask how everything was at perfect intervals. We also had a shrimp nacho appetizer that said feeds 3-4 easily. So ordered that and another appetizer. Holy moly is... More

Had dinner there the other night - what a mistake. The house shrimp special was too spicy, as in buffalo wing spicy. Then piled on top of some Minute Rice. My husband had the shrimp combo with grilled zucchini. The breaded shrimp was not cooked throughout. The plates came to us with half of my order on his plate and... More

Ordered shrimp cocktail veracruz and fish & chips with shrimp. It was enough food for two people. Loved sitting outside in picnic tables on their dock. There was a live band that was good. Although we arrived very late, the staff was nice and courteous.

I was most disappointed with this restaurant of all the ones we visited in SPI. Service was terrible. We didn't even know who our server was until about 15/20 minutes in. The busser took our drink orders from us and then they took a long time to get to us. The food was disappointing. My boyfriend got the shrimp dish... More

the food was great, although I'm not sure any of us got what we ordered. This place is wonderful to watch the fireworks on Friday or Saturday night. I ordered a melon daiquiri and they put salt on the rim (YUK!). No Bueno! Had to send it back. I don't even know what they put in it but it was... More
