This is a ho hum restaurant with a lot of potential. The food is decent, but the decor and layout is lacking. With the big round shape and tons of windows in the harbor area, it could be awesome. Service is ok, but overally, there is nothing to write home about. Spend your money elsewhere.

Remember when the General Manager use to come to your table and introduce himself and ask how you liked the food or service? Haven't had that experience yet? Well, then eat here, as they have set themselves apart, and gone back to the way it use to be. So, what makes a restaurant great? Well, it is the food, the service, and the ambience. I had the shrimp scampi, and it was delicious, the servers were always smiling and the live music and the water view finished it off.

Never quite sure what the business hours might be, lots of management turnover. The food is quite good and a great location. Friendly service; great brunch.

new owners since January 2012 and I think they are doing a very good job. Most meals are under $20 and starters are very good especially the deep fried (tempura) artichoke hearts. Better than Ketch Joann!!

I will definitely go back.

Thank you so much for your praise of our restaurant. We look forward to serving you again, in the future. May we suggest the Artichoke Asador next time. Artichoke halves marinated in olive oil, garlic and spices, charbroiled and served with a lemon-dill aioli.

Restaurant has a Great view and a very accommodating staff. The food was just okay though and they charged extra for the sweet potato fries without telling us, boo!
