“Great Location, But Not For the Price”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

The view of ferry traffic, boats, dolphins, and pelicans playing in Harbor was great. But it is very pricey, noisy, and a bit greasy/fishy smelling. Food was average. Would not go again, with all the other choices.

“Hair - Not once but Twice...”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

I ate here this weekend with friends.
Our appetizer had a 4" black hair in it and my entree had a good 12"-long blonde hair in it! DO NOT EAT HERE.
Food too pricey. If you are going to pay that much, try a nicer place.
Service was mediochre.
Atmosphere was nothing to speak of... plain with dirty floors.

“Mixed review”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Location was nice - right on the water where we could watch boats in the channel. Indoor/outdoor dining is very nice. Fun place but found the prices to be a bit high for the quality. Fish was delicious and so fresh but sides were so-so.

“On the water”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Great location and the food was very tasty! The hamburger (cowboy burger) was huge. Great place to relax and enjoy the marina! Recommended!
