Location, location, location.....it is looking on to the marina, it is nice to eat outside. Prices are a little high, service is a little slow. Nice place to go for a leisurely time, food is mediocre to fairly decent. What makes it worth it is eating outside and rubbing elbows with the really relaxed "boat people" that frequent the place...

We came here twice as it was in walking distance from the Chula Vista RV park we were staying at. Honestly we were all praying for it to be awesome, but it was really only average. We waiting a stupid amount of time and asked more than twice for our drinks, and although the food was quite good, it was... More

Went to this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday as we were staying at the RV resort around the corner. The location is unbeatable, right on the water of the marina, very picturesque and beautiful. We sat at a table by the water as it was a great night to be outside. The service was pretty good, the food was... More

Lunch with a view of the marina was lovely. The food is good and the service was fine. I have not tried the evening for dinner. They advertise music and daily specials. One disappointment was when the fryer was broken so no one could try the fish and chips. The menu seems to be priced "unevenly", where a quesadilla costs... More

Positives: The food, the view, the live entertainment. Negatives: Extremely poor service I'll give you two examples. 1. One Saturday, we meet friends for dinner, drinks, and dancing. I ordered the chicken piccata and it was amazing. My friend ordered the filet mignon and it was equally good. After receiving our dinner orders and drinks, we barely saw our server... More

We go here maybe once a month. The food is good and reasonable at Happy Hour, and the view is nice and peaceful. Definitely put this one on the list if you are in the area!

This place looked to have so much promise, scenery was gorgeous and music was ok, that's where is all went to crap! Got to the place and found a line to be seated, put our name on a list and was told it was a 25 minute wait for patio seating, which was fine because the patio was pooch friendly... More

This has become one of our favorite places for dinner. We had great fish and chips and the cheeseburger in paradise was just as good. The band we listened to played some great music and was wonderful. The view of the marina is a beautiful background for your meal. It was reasonably priced and the drinks were great. Recommend the...

Good place to have a drink or meal by the docks. Prices are a bit high for a burger, and beer, but the food is good, and live bands many evenings. The place gets packed on Friday and Saturday nights so reserve a table. Great breakfast special for 2 if you are staying at the marina.

Very nice lunch on the water's edge. Lots of boats in the Chula Vista marina provide a backdrop. Food ranged from seafood, chowder, to burgers and even spaghetti and meatballs on Monday.
