Great location

We were seated promptly and our server was great. I ordered the " $5 burger special" and sweet potato fries. Good sandwich. Fries were too sweet. We all enjoyed the view.

We planned a day around visiting this bar/restaurant with my son and mhis girlfriend. We drove 20 miles and arrived at the bar. Asked for menus to order lunch, and I ordered a stoli Bloody Mary, the menu offers an absolut peppar Bloody Mary, which is a vodka I don't enjoy. The bartender refused to serve me a Bloody Mary...

We were seated promptly then waited for someone, anyone, to acknowledge our presence. It was a weekday. There were plenty of empty tables in the place, and other customers nearby were being served. It's not clear what the problem was other than disorganization. We gave up after 10 minutes and left the restaurant.

We visited this restaurant as it is on the waterfront. It's a nice family-oriented place that is very relaxed for children too: there is beach volleyball and other games for the kids to play. We had a table outside, which was great as we got to see the sunset: although it is a very busy time of year, there was... More

The view could not be better! Right on the water and outdoor dining. There was live music, sand volleyball and cornhole. The kids were entertained while we visited. The good was good. The Asian bowl was really good. The mahi tacos were a little dry. The ahi appetizer was really good and the cocktails were refreshing! The service was average.... More

This is a great location to go with a large group or with family based on the ambience. We take office staff with us all the time.

Unfortunately you will see some poor reviews from a few years ago at the top of the page. I have been going for a year and find the breeze refreshing and the food and drink good. Like the grouper sandwich and the fresh vegetables are to die for. You will not be disappointed. Pat is a hostess and server and... More

Stopped by for lunch after church with friends on a beautiful day for watching the River. Super good Gyro, fresh & tasty salads and genuine interest from the manager about our visit. I believe the management has changed for the better and it shows in all aspects.

Great atmosphere. This is a very large restaurant with not quite enough parking, but our server was very attentive and fun, food was good and service appropriately quick. Didn't expect it to be gourmet food, but it was good for a casual restaurant with amazing views.
