We just had a wonderful dinner on Friday night. We will definitely return when we are in the area. Our waiter took excellent care of us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals and drinks. Can't wait to return during the spring and summer months.

Six of us met for dinner at this walking distance to the beach restaurant. We all ordered different seafood selections and everyone was very pleased with their choices. We shared some excellent coconut cake for dessert. Super nice evening!

Fun ambiance, loved being right on the marina. The food was delicious. I had the Pasta Pescatore with the marinara sauce and was not disappointed. The marinara sauce was one of the better ones I have had and the shrimp and crab was plentiful.

This was our first night in town and we loved the great food. The drinks were excellent and the service was also great. The crab soup and trio entree were delicious and I'll order them again next time!

Been here several times before. Never disappoints. The view is beautiful on the marina. The best Oyster Rockefeller ever. Really good dinner deal that includes salad main entree and dessert for a low price. Plan on going back again next week.

The restaurant atmosphere was nice, and the view was nice ... but the service was just about awful. The food was decent - but if I had my choice to go somewhere else, or here .. I would choose somewhere else.
