I have visited on several occasions with my husband. We had one visit with a group of 8 and seating was a little tight. But the food is always good. My favorite is the Friday Fried Fish special. It is consistently a light golden brown, moist fish. The fries are tasty and fresh. The view is always relaxing. I will... More

Decided to treat myself to a special lunch after work. This was my first visit since the Restuarant changed hands. I was pleasantly surprised! Love the diverse menus, but I couldn't make up my mind. Finally the Angus Burger won out. Delicious, juicy, & cooked perfectly. The fries were hand cut and crispy! Next time I'll try the Mahi Mahi... More

One of the first places we head to. Good sandwiches and perfect view! We love to sit and relax at the outside tables by the water. The service is good not great but the views make up for that. The food we've had has always been good...good enough to bring us back year after year!

Good Afternoon, I do apologize for your experience here at our restaurant. I can assure you that our shrimp are not frozen, however, I cannot promise that they were not overcooked. This could have been addressed at the time and handled in an appropriate manner. As for the service, there is no excuse for this, and do sincerely apologize. We,... More

We put in at the marina for lunch while on the river all day. one of our favorite spots to go. Older place with its own charm most of the seating is outside but they do have some seating inside. Good food and drinks. A little pricey but has never disappointed. They do have parking so you don't necessarily have... More

Go for the river view. Nothing else comes close in the area for a Low County Sunset! Food is typical bar fare, but pretty good overall. The wedge salad is excellent. They frequently have live music as well!

The food was rather bland and appeared to have been setting under a heat lamp for a lengthy amount of time before being served. The view is decent though, but you most definitely pay for it.
