We went on a Saturday night and the restaurant was pretty empty, service was good. Had a good selection and dinner was good. Nothing out of the ordinary or what you would expect. A decent meal

We used to go there a lot years ago and it was great. The food is just so-so. Good location, though and it was close to where we were staying.

This place is very average and fairly dull. Our service was fine--the food so so. It was cool and breezy sitting on the patio, but we did enjoy looking at the harbor. I would suggest going to the restaurants on the other side which looked more hopping.

Went there last night, probably just before kitchen closed. Super quiet, sat at bar, trying to be quick and not keep staff lingering. Kelsey (Kelly? I think Kelsey) was super sweet and didn't make us feel like we were bothering her. Had a couple Mai Tais and coconut shrimp/ mussels marinara... Both amazing. Super reasonably priced. It was a quick experience but we'd definitely come back!

We stopped here in spec for a late lunch yesterday. There was plenty of space. We opted for the back terrace overlooking the Marina. while dining we watched boats being launched, surf board paddlers and egrets. We are new to the local wines so tried cupcake Chardonnay ($4.50 a glass). Wow! We liked it so much we bought a bottle today. I had tilapia chipotle ($12.95) and my other half had a fried combo ($14.95). The combo included coconut battered shrimp and ordinary battered shrimp as well as two big chunks of fried cod. There was a choice of 2 of about 7 sides. We opted for fries and tomatoes. Altogether a memorable lunch in a memorable spot.
