“Excellent for weekday lunch”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The menu at the Art Center is perfectly suited for lunch while visiting or working downtown. The food is very tasty and you won't need a nap to sleep it off when you return to your work or to the office. The trio salad is a favorite and they always have lunch specials.

“Neat local gallery”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

We loved stopping by this cute gallery, across from the marina. The facility is really nice. They also offer art classes to the public. I would have taken one if they fit in my vacation schedule. There are about six rooms full of paintings, sculptures, and pottery. There is a wide variety of subjects and medias. All of the paintings are for sale. Some of them are even affordable. There is also a little cafe in the back of the gallery. Oh, the admission was free!

“Beautiful place for an afternoon”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Take a class, go to an art show or attend an event. Great place to rent at night for a party. Terrific art, amazing restaurant on site. Directly across the street from CC Bay so there's a great view of the water.
