This is a beautiful spot to enjoy live music situated right on the canal. It is very relaxing & calming and you can watch the boats go buy while enjoying good music.

I wish the food sold right at the music venue was a bit healthier. Hey Phil & Jill how about it? Like all steak offerings. Just kidding about the steak yet the outdoor venue food menu could use some healthier upgrades..

Anyway a magical spot for live outdoor concerts.

Great Friday evening atmosphere, and some tasty dishes, but on this occasion, we found some dishes greatly over-salted. Service was fine.

The atmosphere was amazing with live music and being on the patio was really nice! The ambiance was great to just have drinks, a few bites of something and just enjoy the night.

I almost never give a negative review, but once in a great while I do feel the are necessary. Visiting the area on vacation and seen this place was recommended by locals and we liked the look of the menu online. We showed up for our reservation and were seated upstairs in a area with some beautiful views. We quickly placed our order and from there it went downhill. The food was good no complaints there, however it became hard to eat cornbread with no water. We all drank our 8 oz of water almost bf our food arrived and never got more until after we had finished eating and I was able to grab someone and request more. We finished eating at 7:28, we were unable to get our check until 8:12. We just sat patiently with our 2 children for over 40minutes without a single stop by from the staff. Its worth noting a single server was serving 9 tables and 4 of those had over 6 ppl so maybe he needed some help. Either way this was a pitiful experience for the price and I would not reccomend it.

Awesome food this April evening as we enjoyed a cover band. Buffalo Cauliflower and Brussels Sprout appetizers were plentiful AND flavorful! Enjoyed the beet salad, Brussels sprout salad and the Buddha bowl. Can’t say enough good things about about the flavor and the ambiance!
