“Your paying for the view.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We stopped by here on a Thursday night. The place was practically empty. The food and service were descent, but in my opinion the food was not worth the prices.

“Loved this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

Right on the water in the marina, this restaurant has history, good service and good food. The shrimp tacos were the best. I'd go back anytime.

“restaurant atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Very disappointed after reading about this restaurant. Yes it is on the water, but a bit shabby, and they encourage to feed sea gulls - they have little doors around the windows and give you bread to drop out to the birds to feed them...the sea gulls just hang around looking in at you, waiting for food-yuck! Food was acceptable, but a bit pricey.

“New experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

The food was ok for what they offer, with decent pricing. We did enjoy feeding the sea birds from our table. The service was good, fast and friendly. I would enjoy eating there again.

“Overall very satisfied”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

The restaurant itself is a bit run down but the food was great and the novelty of being able to feed fish and birds from your table is quite unique and entertaining. The view of the surroundings is great. I highly recommend this restaurant.
