Not impressed probably won't be back. Went for lunch...service was good, waitress was friendly. Onion rings....greasy and small plate for price (7 rings). Had the turkey rueben....lacking flavor...not sure if there was dressing on it and sauerkraut was minimal. Husband had the tuna sandwich....thin thin piece of tuna but was okay flavor wise. Place is ok if you want bar... More

We love going to local businesses and this place meets our expectations every time! They have an outside eating area on the marina that beautiful at sunset. The crab dip served is delicious as well as the fried... More

Took my family here last night for supper. We arrived early so seating wasn't a problem. Our server was nice and efficient. We all ordered and I ordered the Blackened Rib Eye. I asked that my grilled/mixed veggies be cooked longer and blackened. The steak did arrive on a hot and sizzling plate as advertised. But I ordered medium and... More

Do not let the outside fool you! The view on the water out back is fantastic as is the food. We had the shrimp platter, Oyster platter, and the nachos. The sanitation rating was 96% and the waitress Chelsey was great.

I had the fried oysters. Wow! To die for. I went when they had a karaoke night. Great atmosphere. The staff, very kind and professional. They have other things like Poole, darts, and I recall some video games. A must try. They have more than seafood. My friends had a monster salad. Looked and they stated it was delicious.

Very quiet spot for the time of day we went. Very sweet waitress who kept the beer and tea coming. My son had oysters, I tried them and liked them even though I thought I wouldn't. I had a seafood mix that was wonderful. After dinner we went out in their back deck and sat in the rocking chairs, visited,... More

This is the place to go relax, have a great meal and cold drink. This is one of my favorite restaurants, especially for lunch. Bob Beck, the owner, is very friendly, just do not get to close to Jo-Jo (the parrot). Although very entertaining, not very friendly. If you have never taken his boat ride, you are in for a... More

Simple American fare. Excellent outdoor dining facilities. Excellent beer collection. Great service. Caution that this has sort of a down home bar and grill feel. It is family friendly, but "fine dining": it isn't.
