“They just don't care anymore”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

If you don't mind waitstaff that would rather be doing anything other than taking care of you, head right in. This place used to be a wonderful treat when we would hit the island. Sadly, management has lost sight of what is important. The whole package has suffered over the recent past. Marginal food coupled with inattentive service and a less than clean dinning room make for a rather depressing experience. If you just got off the ferry and are looking for a great meal keep driving. You won't find it here.

“Excellent Fresh Shrimp and Burgers”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Shrimp is always fresh and burgers are worth the trip. Very casual and friendly. Will definitely go back.

“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.
