Great location, great view of the harbor and marinas, great atmosphere with air conditioned indoor dining area as well as an outdoor are right on the docks, amazing staff and great service. Sea food is fresh and delicious. The Yucatan shrimp tacos and the Campeche fish tacos are to die for.
The Sea food paella was my favorite dish. The main dish is the local fish , Hog fish which is also very good. My new favorite place when I'm in the area.

My wife was on a mission to find a family friendly seafood restaurant, something on the waterfront but affordable and this definitely fit the bill. The shrimp tacos, clam chowder and fish sandwich were very good, kids meals were a nice size portion and the drink specials were very affordable.

Best waitress hands down we have had on vacation so far ( KImberly). Wonderful view of the water & marina. Casual enough to feel comfortable. We had 4 different entrees, all of which were excellent ( steamed Yucatan shrimp, paella, fish tacos and the special yellow fin with crabmeat. I'm a fairly picky seafood critic ( born & raised in MD on the Chesapeake Bay) & I can say with certainty you won't be disappointed with this dining choice!
