“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Nice place on the bay. Decent food and bar drinks at a reasonable price. American type food. Was near other shops and not hard on the wallet. A nice time.

Good food, great atmosphere, scenic setting, and excellent service with a smile. Sit close to the big boats(yachts) and watch the fish swim nearby that have beautiful colors. Drinks for dessert.

“One of my favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

A nice sit down restaurant with a view. Food was very reasonable, service was fast and the food was good. This place has the total package and they are not over the top expensive like some of the "by the water" establishments.
