Yummy seafood

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch. One of us had the Tuna Steak, Fish & Chips, Jumbo Lump Crabcake Sandwich, and 2 kids menu items (yuck). The Tuna Steak was cooked to perfection, the Fish & Chips were fried and light....so good! I would have the kids order off the regular menu though... read more

This restaurant is on the southern most man-made island of the bay bridge/tunnel. The menu had many seafood items from the area. Oh, what to choose! We had a great view of the Bay, the fishing pier, and the shipping channel. Oh yes ... the food was terrific.

I had the crab quiche. It was cold as was the hollandaise sauce on top. There was a long hair in my daughter's salad. Service was good.

Great food, good prices and wonderful view of the bay. When crossing over the bridge, don't forget to stop in the middle and have some breakfast or lunch.

My wife told me about this place, so we stopped for lunch during our drive back from Williamsburg, VA. The location offers an awesome view of the bay. It is located on one of the islands that the Bay Bridge is built on. The staff was very nice and the place was clean. The food was pretty good and the... More

Our waitress was very nice. The view was ok, but it was very cloudy that day. I took a chance on tuna sausage sandwich. It was very dry and not worth the money. The pasta salad had a very strong green pepper taste. My husband had the corned beef hash. He was not thrilled. I tasted it and it was... More

We were traveling to Florida and stopped here for a late lunch and take in the view. We had a pleasant waitress. We had some really good hush puppies with this great lemon butter dip. I ordered the turkey with havarti cheese on homemade roll. It was good, The fries were just fries. My fiance ordered the crab cake sandwich.... More

Upon returning from DE we stopped in for a restroom break and to stretch our legs. Easy to get in and out, beautiful view and the employees were friendly. Nice trinkets at decent price, we didn't buy food but it sure smelled good and the price was reasonable.
