“Convenient not pretentious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Just a short walk upstairs there is a nice bar with seating as well as an outdoor deck to dine. The decor is surfing and unlike others places nearby you are not in a glass cage when eating outside.

Place was busy for lunch. Food was good and the menu has some variety. Service was good. We went twice for lunch.

Great staff, great food and great view - what more could you ask for. I'm there for lunch at least once a week.

“Love the deck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Great spot to sit on the deck overlooking the harbor w/ the warm sun and cool ocean breeze. Nice selection on the menu – we tried the fisherman’s’ stew, Cajun chicken salad and lobster tacos. The food wasn’t exactly gourmet, but it was very good. I had their "famous" mai tai, and it was quite good. My friends were a bit disappointed w/ the mojitos - said they didn't have much flavor. Hear the happy hour M-F is great w/ drink and food specials.

“World Famous Fish & Chips were great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Great beach - surf board decor. Live music. Great food - reasonable prices considering the location. The featured is the fish and chips. Their house beer was good too. Nice setting up stairs over looking the marina. Bought one of their cool t-shirts as a souvenir.
