The food was good and the sunset was outstanding. A very historic wharf that was a very busy ferryboat port in the the early 1900's. There is memorabilia and photos gracing the interior of the restaurant.

Fried seafood (much of which is frozen, pre-breaded, can't recommend the shrimp), burgers, iceberg lettuce salads. Great location and live entertainment on weekend nights on the deck.More

We allow pets to be leashed just outside our fence around the deck with a nice table under the shade right next to your furry friend, you can touch them through the fence. We also provide a nice cold bowl of water!!
