Having been here before, I was happy to be back. Good food, great service, especially this time. Kyle deserves a special thanks for making sure a rude, drunken individual was escorted out before he caused some serious problems with me and other patrons. The live...More

Beautiful view and very nice place. But have to say very disappointed in food, over priced for food and attentiveness. We both ordered the Captain Jack's platter, all over fried, crusty and hard, shrimp was barely edible. I am surprised the waiter served it this...More
