Our group of six had a wonderful brunch/lunch on an early Saturday afternoon in August. Although we had a reservation, outside seating is first come first served, so we waited about 30 minutes in order to sit on the patio outside. Southwest pulled chicken salad,...More

It is hard traveling with a dog. This restaurant actually allows the dog on the patio and serves them a bowl of water. Food was delicious and nice scenery to look at (marina).

Not un-kid friendly at all, but I would say that this is one of those places that people go to for a calm, relaxing meal. So, it depends on the kids! Hope that helps a little!

Yes This restaurant is kid friendly for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However I would suggest a different restaurant for dinner such as Redamak's
