Met a large group of friends for lunch with a delightful water view. Shrimp salad Louis was served with five huge shrimp on a bed of lettuce with a homemade Louis sauce. Fresh seafood stuffed croissant was delicious full of lobster, shrimp and scallops. Great service.

Had had lunch here before, but this time we dropped by for dinner. There was a live band playing out on the terrace, but we managed to get a table far enough away that it didn't interfere with conversation. The view was out onto the water and there was still a little movement despite the dark, so it was interesting.... More

What a wonderful atmosphere! View the large yachts moored in the harbor, watch... More

We have been here before and sat outside. Service is hit or miss but view good and good is pretty good but a little high priced. We had our dogs this past Thursday so we found a seat in the 'pet friendly' area. Two of us wanted coconut shrimp that we remembered having before in the other outdoor eating area... More

The patio area was very loud the the band started at about 4:00pm. Just a guitar player and singer but it just made the place louder. Food was ok. Very expensive. Parking was horrible. Our truck is a Ram 3500 and all the signs say do not back in to park. We found a spot and had to park over... More

Great experience, good view of homes, and we were able to see dolphins swimming. The food was pretty amazing also. Loved the raspberry cake and chocolate cake (had two servings). Staff was excellent also! Fun experience
