“A Favorite Spot”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Casual atmosphere; friendly staff; great food and beverages. Prices are reasonable, too. You will find music in the upstairs bar, which has a great view of Matanza's Pass.

“Great atmosphere on the water”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

It is a great place to look at all the boats and wildlife right on the "Back Bay" Located under the sky bridge and a little hard to find but work the trip. The fish dishes are fresh from the boat and my favorite is the stuff shrimp dish. I go back over and over again. They are also found in the Enertainment Book where you pay for one entree and get one free. Can't beat the price and the view.
