There was only one couple in the entire restaurant at seven pm on a week day. For the chowder bowl. It was alright. Tried the fried fish and it was good. Kinda expensive. No ambiance. Nice servers and service.

We have it eaten traditionally (once a year) at this restaurant for probably over a decade. Unfortunately, the food has gone downhill the last two years. My seafood sampler was mediocre, as was my husband's seafood, our friends' steaks were not acceptable. (cut extra thin, were not tender, overcooked, etc.) We all know better to complain at a restaurant (who... More

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.
