I ordered mussels which tasted fine. I asked if I could have some bread and they said they would charge another $1.00 for bread and it would be just sliced bread! My partner had a Caesar Salad which was non descriptive.

Casual, friendly - food was good. Right on the water - not gourmet food but fresh and good! Quick service, we would go back.

Our rather boisterous group was in the bar watching 2 football games simultaneously. The food was good. I really liked our server but she was spread a little thin, serving the whole room (a 12 stool bar and seating for 20+) largely by herself. Her attitude and effort made up for this however and I would happily go back. There's... More
