I probably would have rated lower if I paid full price. This place resembles a tourist stop. If you like that sort of thing, you are fine. BUT, they give up quality and service for ambiance. It is seasonal outside. I plan on trying the inside restaurant. We will see how that goes.

Very "shorey" type environment outside where it is more casual and laid-back. Inside is a bit more formal. Good food. Waiter was very slow, however it did get crowded while we were there.

Food was extremely bad, worse chicken dish, lobster had absolutely no taste, the other couple order a margarita and it was like water, the soup seem like it was from a can, the best thing was the salad, and the service was absolutely the worse, we asked to be moved to a different table and the waitress and the hostess...

I did not expect this place to be where it was....but there it was! It was an incredible surprise! Food, drinks and service were great. Get the Reuben (with cole slaw instead)...it was one of the best I've ever had. Plus, they will give you Old Bay fries!

This is one of our regular hang outs. The trees give shelter on a hot day. Great and relaxing atmosphere. Staff are nice and food is pretty good. The fries and soups are always good. The Wednesday night lobster special is great. Live music in eve is nice as well. They also have a pretty good beer selection on draft.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and they had a duo singing-they were ok. Lots of families there. Atmosphere is awesome, cooler/more shaded than Beverly Hills Tavern. They have motorcycle parking. The inside restaurant was very nice. Menu looked good. We both ordered broiled crab cakes, they were full of filler and way to hot to eat for most of... More

Island theme with cabanas and steel drums... Food is pricier than a chain restaurant but very good. It gets busy during the weekends so expect a little wait.
