One of my fav go to places... music, patio dining, beautiful water views make summer cocktail sunset evenings a joy. Winter is warm and toasty inside,

“Live music, wine and appetizers”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

What more could you ask for? Oh, a water view? Yeah it has that too. I love the live music. They don't really have a dance area, but if the band is good enough, people just make one! Will definitely be back!

Great location, beautiful restaurant, stunning view of the bay and good food. We've been for lunch and dinner several times. Great happy hour specials on the patio and good live music.

“Classy Waterfront Fun Restaurant”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Recently a friend and I revisited McKennas on the Bay. We went on a wednesday late afternnon.This is a great time to go as they have 1/2 price on bottles of wine.We had a Leticiia Pinot and it paired well with the grilled veggies we got with goat cheese..we asked for extra goat.
I also ordered the sliders which you have a choice of crab cake, beef or pulled pork. The beef were very good and I took one home to my husband and he even liked it heated up. They cooked it to order rare and you can't get that in most places.
The General Manager John came by our table and he always makes for a nice visit.John is a tall handsome man with an English accent who knows how to treat people..say hi to John when you go there and tell him you read about him on Trip Advisor.
We are going back next week :)
Lovely view ,good food,excellent wine! What more do you need!

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We were stranded on a boat over night (well we were saved by the boat owner because we were homeless for the night) and we needed food so we walked all of 50 feet and had the best breakfast of the trip.

Beutiful sunrise/sunset views good service and good prices.
