We had dinner here on a Tuesday night. I had the steak and it was cooked just to my liking. The service was great and the musicians provided a lovely backdrop.

Located within Sunset Resort we found this little oasis of goodness! Read through TA comments and decided to locate - just past Edgewater (top left hand side of island). Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Fresh fish. Chunky chowder. Thank you.
