Sunday lunch on the bay. Very nice to watch the boats come and go and enjoy a leisurely lunch. My wife had the Monte Cristo and I had the fish tacos. Good service, ambiance, and food.

It was a very relaxing place to go with friends and eat; the servers are very friendly. I love that you just overlook the water and ships. But that being said I found a hair in my hamburger and my friends shrimp wasn't cleaned properly....More

Great locale, but neither the food nor the service made it memorable. Server not too knowledgable about menu not locale, which could have aided us as first time visitors. Shared fish and chips and it was okay. Expected more fresh options given location.

They have a delicious cucumber martini. We like to sit at the bar and listen to the live music and enjoy the atmosphere. The food is pricey and not that good. We have a particular bartender that is fantastic!

Our only disappointment was that the staff did not sing happy birthday to my 9 year old grandson. The tacos were delicious, the kids meals were all eaten, the wrap was good, etc. Server was friendly. We went elsewhere for dessert.

My only complaint about this location is that they let a large group who was waiting for their name to be called hang out right between our table and the one next to us, there is an ample waiting area at the front. It was...More
