Very easy to locate and park! Food was delicious, waitstaff extremely friendly and the view from the covered patio is breathtaking! Must visit!

We have eaten here several times and have loved each visit. The daily menu is always full of a good variety of fresh fish options. The homemade tartar sauce is amazing. The view of the harbour is too. This is a casual place which welcomes families and has a decent kids menu.

The location is great, so this is probably the draw for this restaurant. The food was tasteless. So if you go for the view, enjoy!

I walked over for dinner here after being disappointed with the customer service at Anthony's just a few blocks away. I ordered the Scallop Ceviche (it was wonderful) and the Shrimp and Crab Cocktail (also very good but a bit too much cocktail sauce). The place was very busy but I was able to get right in (roughly 7PM on a Wednesday night). Great views.

The restaurant is right next to the Unconditional Surrender Statue (soldier kissing the nurse)... so get there during the daylight to capture some photos.

We won't go back to eat a meal, but we'd sit in the outdoor bar area and order a Bloody Mary and maybe the cheesy bread. There are pigeons everywhere, so that's bothersome, but that's at any outdoor, open air restaurant on the water. At least there weren't bugs. I asked our server about the difference between two different kinds of halibut being served. The server said, "You get what you pay for," so I ordered the more expensive one. Two of us had two different kinds of fish, and they were OK, yet expensive. Our fish entrees were grilled over mesquite, so if you don't like that flavor, order something else. It was overpowering to me, to an otherwise bland fish filet. The view is beautiful. The drinks are expensive but great (minus the shrimp in the Bloody Mary which had gone a little bad). Parking could be a big issue here. Take a cab, walk, or valet-park.
