Had a lovely lunch and we enjoyed the waterfront dining. The avocado stuffed with crab salad was huge and really delicious. My friend had the prime rib sandwich and really enjoyed it. The homemade chips are fabulous.

Recommended to us by a couple we met at a comedy show. We came for a late lunch and really enjoyed the food. The menu has something for everyone. Staff is very friendly and helpful with things to do in the area. Music playing at the outside bar, it was really nice and relaxed. They have an atmosphere for everyone... More

This place gets better every time. The lunch here is great and the portions are plenty. I had blackened swordfish, which was "omg" delicious, and my husband had the soup & sandwich combo, also very good! The atmosphere is nice, a very casual, local feel. We sat at the inner bar, looking out over the water. We have come in... More

We ordered the crab stuffed pretzel. Not as good as I hd hoped. We ordered Paella. There was NO rice at all. The flavor of what we had was good but not paella! Now the peanut butter crème Brule was extraordinary! We took an evening stroll on the inlet and jetty behind the restaurant!

Nice place to eat with all ages. Nice live music playing during dinner. Good food. Nice open airy atmosphere. Had the huge pretzel Appetizer and there was more than enough to go around

We went here with family while on vacation. It's right on the water and has a really nice breeze! The atmosphere is very tropical and the entertainment is pretty good. We got conch fritters as an appetizer and they were very good! I was impressed by the freshness and the quality of the seafood. I got the seafood trio which... More

We dined there especially for the paella. It was more of a bouillabaisse, the rice was plain white rice and was in a watery tomato based sauce with lots of seafood (which was a very nice surprise and not overcooked.) but no saffron flavor and it also had large amounts of celery. We have had paella many times and also... More
