Food here is fantastic and view and atmosphere really fun. BBQ shrimp is one of the best meals I've ever tasted. Fish and lobster tacos are great too. Good beer selection and great Bloody Marys.

No parking on Commercial street, but there is a public lot not far away. If you have handicapped/elders, you could drop them off and then go up the hill to park.
