He have made this our annual gathering place for Fathers day, however, this year was not that great. The line to order food was so long that it took 30 mins. or more to get to the counter! Even then, there were only two cash register and they need someone to direct the flow of the lines. After you wait in line for 30 mins. to order, you then have another 10 minutes to get your food.
The food was not that great and I did not get what I ordered; I was not going to bring it back because I got tired of standing. This places needs to study how to become more efficient. There should also be more food options on the boardwalk.

I had been going to this place for over 15 years and I am disapointed to say that the food quality and value has gone down. We went there last night and waited a while for our food and will not be returning for food ever again. The atmosphere and bar was good. I could not recommend this place to eat. It is a shame.

We had a nice time here, as it is great to sit on their deck and overlook the bay while eating. The food is exactly what you would expect (lots of fried items - most probably previously frozen - like the clam strips, shrimp, etc). It would be a little nicer if they used more fresh local seafood, but all in all a nice stop. Prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was great.

Went here on a reccomendation on a local TV spotlight. It was a cloudy Saturday with some sprinkles of rain (not a washout) 95% of the stores on the boadwalk were closed (it was 2pm) so that was a little dissapointing. The food was over priced had the Captain's Platter for $25.00 and it contained 2 nice good tasting pieces of flounder, 4-5 small shrimp about 6 small scallops a couple of very small onion rings and the rest was tasteless clam strips and tons of french fries. The staff was nice, friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is great overlooking the harbor. So go for a drink or the view and be careful on what you order as it seems overpriced for what you get.

Its a very nice place with beautiful scenery (see photos) but the food is overpriced and frozen. If you don't mind frozen - pre breaded seafood then this will surely please your palate. Not mine though. Worth the scenery only. I would recommend to experience once for the view :)
