Salmon Burger and one Regular Burger very good. The service was great nice location great window view. Price was a bit on the high side but that was due to the location. Relaxing a good spot to take a break.

Our waiter was very nice and helpful. (PS the crab salad had about a tablespoon of crab meat on it, I wouldn't recommend that. But everything else was good.)
