Family of four to Virginias and the atmosphere was fun, the food was good, and we will come again. Kids meals are $10 each so be prepared for at least $17 per kid with a drink and tip.

Visited for lunch, breeze was great! Shrimp was decent and white fish was fresh, a little too much coating, but good flavor.

The view, people watching, the atmosphere, we like it all. They usually have some pretty good specials, the bar menu is decent, the bartenders are typically friendly and will gladly conjure up some "island special" for us! We go every time we are in Port A.

We went with 13 people and only waited about 20 minutes so that was good. The appetizers came really quickly and tasted wonderful so that part was good also. There must have been a kitchen issue because it took almost 15 -20 minutes to get all our plates on the table and they came 2 or maybe three at a... More

My favorite dish is the grilled Mahi Mahi. Drinks from the bar are excellent. Laid back atmosphere. A little pricey but worth it!

We have been here several times and always love it. We get the grilled Mahi Mahi sandwich each time and the clam chowder both are great. The sandwich has the best lemon garlic Montreal steak seasoning on top and their tartar is amazing. also, the atmosphere is fun and it is very breezy on the patio. the restaurant is actually...

This place was awesome! My friend and I celebrated her bday here, the food was great and at a reasonable price. We watched the boats in the bay, the pirate ship nearby and it was so breezy and beautiful. The whole atmosphere was beautiful and relaxing.
