This place is very nice with outdoor seating on the water front. It had ambiance, great service and most importantly good food at a low price.

“Great Food, Casual Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

The food here is very fresh, delicious, and portions are hearty. Service is great! I like taking my daughter here for lunch and early dinner, but do not recommend taking children later since it is in the back of the bar and the bar fills up at night.

“Slooooow service. Food has gone downhill!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Half hour before waitress even came to the table. She acted like she was stoned, or just plain stupid. Even longer for the food. Loved this place when they first opened. My how far they have fallen in a year. Food is not much above school cafeteria. If this is what you have settle at, close the kitchen!
