“Great local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

This was our first visit, we sat inside. The menu was nice and varied with some different options - we eat out every night for 2-3 weeks on holoday so like variety. Food was good and I will put it on the list for next time :)
This restaurant has a lovely view but as its right on the river there are loads of bugs around so it you sit outside remember your bug spray!

“Awesome restaurant.Already planning next visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We had a group of 7 adults. Called at 4:30 and they reserved an outside table for us that same night at 630. We got seated immediatly and everyone in our party gave the food rave reviews. Our server,Toni, was amazing...she made our experience even better. Don't listen to all the reviews that said this place was just basically overpriced bar food...they clearly have no taste buds left and are too snooty to eat anywhere other than 'fine dining' restaurants. This is our new favorite spot!

“Tourists don't appreciate this Lovely spot/Locals Love It!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

RC, rocks, as a previous reviewer vociferously pronounced. Great spot to chill dine in or better yet dine on the covered deck, watch the birds, kayaks and enjoy the breeze.

The tedious and mis-informed fellow from Mass should have stayed home and ate everything they offer FRIED and their devoid of ANY flavor Atlantic lobstah.

I have my grilled Grouper. Sometimes, it get's placed where a delicious cheeseburger just came-off. GOOD GOD, is that great!

Have a drink, relax and chat with a friendly waitress. Bartender, not so much.

No, it is not haute-cuiine. What it is a lovely spot with attentive staff that offer's very good bar food. Some of it VERY FRESH and HEALTHY!
