Went on a lovely windy day in late January. No crowds. Perfect place for a beer and an excellent fish sandwich with an interesting cabbage salad side. Just us and the pigeons, who do have the run of the place. Don't know if it would...More

Great views and fisher watching. Food is just ok and I guess if you want anything "fish" you need to get there early-otherwise everything sold out

With this place being located right on the water you expect fresh seafood, but this food seemed boxed and greasy. The shrimp were overcooked and the crab cakes were barely edible.

The food is good but I think it was much better a couple years ago. They had sord fish stew and the portions were a lot better. Not sure what happened. I heard they are under new management, not sure if that's the reason.
