“Don't be dismayed!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

The food and service is average, but listening to music looking at the boats in the marina under a live oak, and drinking cold beer makes up for the long wait for food. Just don't go too hungry, have a great attitude and you'll be fine

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

What used to be one of my favorite spots has quickly turned into the biggest waste of time. Service is absolutely horrible. The past three times I have given it another chance and I am finally done. I will miss the view of the gorgeous marina but will just experience it from the boat from here on out. Food was always subpar but I always accepted it for the friendly staff and view. The staff no longer is friendly and could care less about their tables and customers. It's been real and it's been nice but it DEFINITELY has not been real nice.

“Great place but there could be more variety”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Everyone is SO nice!!! When we stay at the Marina we always eat here for the spectacular view. I wish it was better and there was more variety. Usually get the fried grouper sandwich. It's good, but not great.

“Friendly staff and great view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in a rental in Port Royal Landing and had lunch and dinner at the marina. The staff is friendly and the food is casual but very good. Their burger is fantastic.
