“Once is enough!”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Just a cool February night, looking for some good bar food and we stopped here. The setting is great and we loved being right on the water at a nice spacious table but that is where this love affair ends. The server was squirrelly and clueless. We thought it was an act but she had to be in her 20's and acted like she was 12. She had no idea what the soup of the day was, so I ordered the clam chowder which never came. We had 2 pizzas and a friend had a plate of calamari. He was very disappointed when it came because the portion was so small. The pizzas were fine, nothing special but edible. The beer selection was good and arrived cold. However, a friend ordered a margarita and did not drink it, she said, "this drink is terrible!" Normally, we would go back for the big tvs and great setting but after discussing it, Big Game is off our list! It was just a strange experience and the food wasn't good enough to call us back.

“We are locals and we will be back!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

What a pleasant experience, as two old ladies with a groupon we are often not treated well! Our sweet attentive server gave us a wonderful window seat, You couldn't as for better. Their sweet potato fries were a wonderful side to a large Cob Salad. Menu had many very resonably priced offerings. We will be back with friends to have is their Chocolate Martini only $7. WE LOVED THE RIVER VIEW, too bad it was a grey day and they had to pull the plastic shades down. So, we were comfortable. We noticed several other locals which always say good food.

“Lots of potential but fell short”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

This place is a great location right in the marina and has tons and tons of flat screen tvs so it's an awesome place to watch a game. Our server was very friendly but the service was incredibly slow. It wasn't very busy while we were there but our food took close to 45 minutes. And then the food was just average. The burger was flavorless, the mashed potatoes watery, the ribs tough. Nothing inedible but nothing great. The only thing we would order again would be the pepperoni roll appetizer, which was pretty yummy. They did have a great live band that played a great variety of music and really got the crowd involved. We enjoyed the band more than anything.
