“one of my favorite "dives"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

If your guests want music, noshing and drinks while yacht & people watching, this is the BEST place. Will always meet some yacht's crew here and wonder why you didn't do the same when you were younger. You can live that missed life vicariously through these young people.

“Evening drinks ... No food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This place has live music quite often in the evening and is right on the docks as the names indicates. The food that I have had here has been basic food I could get anywhere and be just as unsatisfied. HOWEVER grabbing a few drinks and sitting outside and enjoying the music, people, and water along with watching the boats come in is very nice.

“Great food - huge portions - fantastic view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Waterfront restaurant - on the boardwalk - outside seating on covered porches - main floor and upstairs. We hd fish tacos and hot dogs - both were tasty and a bit unique - special spices - even the iced tea was notably good. Place has an old house atmosphere - slightly but pleasantly shabby. Pet friendly too. Views of the water and boats was gorgeous. Reasonably priced nice menu.

“The view is great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Visited this place on a Friday evening.
We sat on the upper terrace where the view is the best.
The dishes we ordered were huge so we had to take half back home.
The prices are very reasonable for the amount of food you get at this place.
The place is in need for a renovation.
