Visits to the CI are probably into the double digits but this is the first time my wife and I ever got a table with no wait on a weekend. What was even more amazing we got a pretty good table with a view of the boats/marina as well.
OK...you go to the CI for the scenery, the drinks, sometimes the music, but certainly not for the food. Food is just slightly above average bar food, and not cheap either. Drinks are on the expensive side with most of the decent stuff running $8.00 - $10.00 per drink. Some of the frozen treats come in a 20 oz. size so you can sit over a drink for quite some time when the place isn't busy.
A little word of caution though about views of the boats. There have been times when the bigger boats leave the dock that you get treated to a nice dose of gas/diesel fumes and a ton of noise. Most people don't care as they get to watch a lot of older guys spending the afternoon parading around with somebody I'm sure is a younger niece!
If you go when it is crowded expect that once the food is finished your table will be cleared and the check is on the table. I can't really blame the wait staff wanting table turnover as the crowd has never impressed me as a big tipping bunch from what I have observed. I saw a table full of younger guys that had to have a bill well over $100.00 leave two $5.00 bills on the table...and they ran the waitress ragged bringing beer to their table.
OK...a fun afternoon with a beach bar atmosphere for about a $90 - 100.00 per couple. Give it a try!
