Food was not that for the price. Service was marginal and service was slow. Not a good representation of a dinner restarant with a veiw of broken down and boats in a state of repair

Have been coming here every 6 months for the last 3 years. Not anything to look at but the food was always good. This time very thing except the carrots seemed to be frozen food. Service was very poor and food was equally as poor.

Well, yes, there's a bit of a harbor view. If you look over the RV parking lot or the many warehouses, you'll get a glimpse of water, boats and islands. Food and service were indifferent. It's hard to find and not worth the effort. Definitely not to be repeated.

Nice relaxed atmosphere located on a pier. Sea Lions right outside the windows. Lots of food for your money. Only problem is they over fried the fish.

Went here based on recommendation from motel clerk. We were not disappointed. It was an easy walk from where we were staying. The fish we ordered was very fresh and well prepared. Not gourmet dining by any means, just good food with a view of the water. Service was fine even on a busy evening. I would definitely return next... More

Emphasis is on quantity of food, not quality. Wine is cheap but not much choice. Very busy and most guests seems happy.

We chose this over the Chart House since we did not know that is the better place. Food was fine, nothing fancy. Right near the beach.

It took a while for the waitress to make her way to us and with four tired and restless kids it was not a good start. But the waitress was sweet and the service turned out awesome. Kids calmed down after they food in their tummies. I had the fish and chips and they tasted so fresh like the restaurant... More

Had to ask three times for Tabasco sauce for my husband's clam chowder, which took over 15 min. Then we waited almost an hour for the rest of our meal. Over priced for the quality and quantity of food.
