Nice friendly atmosphere with a great view, place is small and the acoustics are LOUD, You can hear all the banging and clanging of dishes and glasses too well. Food was good and we went to Artist night which was interesting.

We decided to eat here for the sunset view following the recommendations of some local friends. The visit did not disappoint! We were seated inside but had a view over the marina of the sunset. The service and food was very good.

I love to get a table outside and watch the boats go in and out of the small boat harbor. Food is very good. I haven't had a bad meal yet. Servers are very friendly and helpful. Definitely one of the nicer, more upscale restaurants...More

Would have given five stars but they're oven was broken and could not have the flatbread. The waitress did not tell us until we had sat there for awhile deciding on what to order. Would have been nice to know when we sat down :(....More

We didn't, but I would be ready for a little wait. They have an open bar which allows you to get a drink and walk around the boat dock while you wait.
