The bartenders Tom and Gionna at the top floor bar are the coolest, most down to earth people. And they are moth Marine Corp. vets. Go see the view of Port Jeff harbor and enjoy the atmosphere.

This restaurant is a fun, very casual place to meet friends for drinks. The food is good and the view is great. The rooftop bar/dining area has a retractable roof which is open in nice weather
