“Very relaxing and good food!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Enjoyed a delicious seafood dinner outside on the deck overlooking the bay while enjoying the live music. Portions were generous and our entrees were delicious and well enjoyed. The service was very good as well. There was a cool breeze and an outside fan kept us very comfortable.
After dinner, we enjoyed walking around the complex and found it very picturesque. Went into some of the shops and took in the scenery. Even saw The Salty Dog costumed character roaming about!

“Nice waterside lunch”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

A nice indoor/outdoor restaurant/bar. The food is good and beer was cold. Service was good. We sat outside which was fine when there was a breeze. The love bugs were a little thick, but overall a great lunch. It is a must visit if you have never been.

“lunch with the family”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

the food there is delicious,you will need either reservations or to be added to the waiting list since its super busy. the bathrooms are tiny but they don't need to be huge . the portions are generous and you'll never leave there hungry. the drinks are good too. they make a great pink lemonade and have a decent kids menu. there is indoor and outdoor seating and its right on the water so you get gorgeous views no matter where you want to sit. its a cozy place to take anyone local or otherwise to eat.

“Perfect waterfront casual dining!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The fried flounder sandwich exceeded my expectations, while my husband was disappointed in the chili he had served over his hamburger...but in their defense, this is a seafood restaurant. Friendly staff, clean, casual atmosphere. Our window table gave us the perfect view of the tide coming in. One of our better meals on this trip.

“Salty Dog HHI”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Wonderful chowder, shrimp po-boy, and burgers, great value, and service, although the place can seem a little crazy at times. Can't go wrong here! Scenic location! Don't forget your tourist tee!
