There were 12 of us on a Friday Afternoon, right around 4 o'clock when places tend to fill up for happy hour specials. There are NO reservations on "the weekend" here which is Friday and Saturday.
The waiter and waitress serving us were great. Normally when you have a large party you have to constantly remind the staff to bring little things. Our beverages stayed full without reminding, and all our orders were correct and cooked perfectly the first time.
The menu has a variety of things you can choose from so everyone will be happy and find something here.
There is also a nice view of the water out of the windows so be sure to sit as close as possible or even enjoy an outdoor seat under the heat lamp if it's chilly.
It would always be a plus for a restaurant to do separate checks when there are several people with only credit/debit cards. Not many people carry cash.
