We came out for the Havana Nights dance event, and had dinner beforehand. The dance instructors are great. Food has improved a lot since last summer, and it looks likes a new menu. Service was ok. Seafood pasta was good and satisfying. New nachos with...More

Plenty of parking. Afternoon party and the beer was good and cold and a little expensive. Nice view, a little warm and humid inside.

Nice spot near the water, popular with HD bikers. We stopped by for battle of the bands which was fun. Food was a disappointment... cheese whiz on the nachos with cold sliced beef, and super greasy onion rings. The server was super nice and friendly....More

Good food and view. Sits right on the river. Sat out on upper deck. Good prices for standard "bar"-type food, nothing special or stand out. Would go again.

Really great place to hangout on a Friday or Saturday evening. Open to the marina and river. Very easy-going crowd. Crab cakes are great but I think everything is a little expensive, including the drinks. But, really, great place to hang out.

Cody and his team have transformed this tired old restaurant into a go-to place in Occoquan and on the river. Great items on the menu and reasonable prices. Many nights there is live entertainment, its on the list for the next visit

I was told by people who live there that they do allow dogs on the patio. Don't know from personal experience.
