My wife and I recently enjoyed dinner out on the deck, enjoying their happy hour and early bird special features. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere and service was excellent. Highly recommend the fish selections.

Had a great dinner. Warm spinach salad was excellent. The grouper was delicious. The coconut shrimp were crunchy and had a great dipping sauce. The view is beautiful.
