Great food. Great service. The best homemade barbecue sauce. There are three different types. All waitresses and bartenders were fantastic. A must do for dinner out on your first houseboat night.

Want good food, great service, and the best view around. Stop into Pier 42 and you can have all that. The Catfish is the best around. So sit back have a cold one and enjoy the view.

When you're out boating and need some refreshment, this is the place. While it does cater to all the tourist it is good for beer and basic food. Take time to feed the turtles on the way in. The draft beer is cold and we...More
