“A Welcome Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Well prepared food at reasonable prices. Start with fish and chips for lunch and branch out. (We even went back for their cole slaw for take-out for a part of a Sunday brunch we were serving at home later.) We had breakfast brunch there recently, and it was well-prepared, too. That have a good chef, and I hear the owner Betty is the inspiration for the kitchen. I'm surprised this place isn't as well -known as it should be. It's one of the best settings in Alameda, the City across the Bay in one direction and a charming yacht harbor in the other. We've been back several times now.

“Great Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Seafood sautee was great. Fresh shrimp, crab & scallops without being too buttery. Lots of other items like sandwiches & steak to choose from if your not a seafood buff.
