You can't beat the location on the water. Live music on the weekends. Super casual and good burgers.

This is one of my favorite places for relaxing fun meals. It is totally informal and some come here on their boat to eat and drink. Complete family place with sand and playground. Limited menu but food matches the place.

Location is great, food is okay good boarder burger (though steak is over cooked and you're not asked how you want it), but service is terrible. Owner might not know how to smile and welcome customers, it takes a lot of time to prepare burgers......More
