Excellent Service, magnificent view. A very nice place. The Crab Louie Not enough Crab and what there was they try to Fluff up which damages the original texture of the Crab meat. Overwhelmed by the side vegetables. Never order this dish again.

A great pet-friendly spot located just off the main Embarcadero Street with an elevated vantage point. The food here was good with decent-sized portions. The shrimp cocktail was a standout and the service was on point.
