The food was good and the service was excellent. However, the prices were ridiculous. For a sandwich, fries, and a side of coleslaw in the size of a ketchup dish. Also, there was no entertainment until late in the evening. This is NOT truly a waterfront bar; it is simply on water where boats are docked. There are no views and it is VERY loud. Smoking is permitted which is only nice if you are a smoker. Since it is breezy, the smoke always seems to blow into your face from other tables. Much too loud for a date night. Tables are scrunched together and you sit on plastic chairs at wobbly outdoor tables. Would be fine if the prices were closer to a fast food restaurant.

We went for dinner at 7pm and stayed for a couple of sets played by a great band called "Strange Brew" The service was great, food was great and the ambiance of the outdoor restaurant located in a boat harbor under a Tiki Hut just added to the fun. After drinks and dancing we left by around 11pm. A fun night all around!!

I like restaurants in the outdoors, and this fit the bill.

open-air bar and grill. tiki hut. casual and cozy. tucked into the marina. fun to watch boats pull in. Mama ducks, papa ducks, and lots of baby ducks. food was good. service was friendly and prompt. Live music while we were there - the band was good. The atmosphere was such that you could mentally block out the view of the marina and imagine P.C. being a beach restaurant.
