“Great Place on the Water”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Nice little restaurant/bar on the water. When the bridge goes up, the most beautiful yachts and sailboats pass right past you. The food is delicious too! Well worth a visit.

“Ships Ahoy”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Excellent by the bridge in Simpson Bay. Crowds gather on the stools at the water's edge and the tables nearby to watch the big yachts come and go at bridge opening times. The best time to go is about 4.15 to get close to the rails get a drink and wait for the bridge to go up at 4.30 to let the ships out of the lagoon. Order a meal from the bar and wait for the next opening time at 5.30 to let ships in. Food is excellent. Beer is cheap. Mixed drinks are moderately priced. Crowd can get(happily) boisterous cheering the big private yachts and their crews and passengers. NOT TO BE MISSED

“5:30 pm it is the place to be”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

This bar is right next to the draw bridge that lets the boats into the marina. The bridge opens at 5:30pm. You are very close to the mega yachts and sailboats as they come through. Boat owners a crew wave and take pics of us poor people in the bar, relatively speaking, as we do the same to them. It was was a fun time. Also had dinner there one night and it was very good.

“Sadly, very poor neighbours”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

As I write this it is 1 in the morning, and I have been trying to phone them for over an hour. Thay play very lour (and bad) music until all hours. They disturb everyone in the area. They pay no attention to their surroundings. As a lifelong yachtsman, I would never set foot in a marina like this.
