Great location, unfortunately bad food, bad service and terribly overpriced. This is my 2nd try at the restaurant.........never again.

My wife and I stopped in for a couple of beers this afternoon. At $7 each plus tax and tip, it was almost $20 for a couple of cold ones. That's just too darn much. We'll drink our own onboard from now on.

Good food but very pricey for what it is. Appetizers just under 10, grouper sandwich at 15, beers at 7. Cool vibe and view but you are definitely paying for it.

My husband and I have visited this restaurant quite a few times for Happy Hour, Power Hour on Sundays and anytime hours. The fish tacos and wings are our favorites. We tried the Fish Bowl with added crab legs and it was very good. The wait staff is stellar! Very friendly and knowledgeable.

My husband and I actually grab a burger and beer here probably once/month. It's not ritzy, but if you like eating outside, a water view, and some amazing people and boat watching, this is the place. I can't give it a better than average rating because the food is really average....but nice wait staff, and always attentive.

Great place to have a cocktail or an ice cold beer. We stopped by to take a break from fishing no problem to dock and dine. The fish spread was very good and so was the fish tacos. We are locals and we visit this place often. Great laid back relaxing atmosphere. If you get a chance to stop by... More

This is my favourite place to visit by boat. This place feels like it belongs in Key West or Tortola. Truly casual, outdoor dining to enjoy on beautiful summer days. Cold beers and wine, excellent food and light snacks make this place a favourite haunt for many locals.

We ordered two fish bowls. We got one fish bowl. I was in the rest room when it arrived. I asked the server where the other one was and her response was, 'oh, you didn't get it?' so she ordered it. When the other person in my party was half way done with his food, i went to find the... More

Nothing exceptional as far as food. Not bad , decent seafood and nachos but nothing to write home about. The real draw here are the bartenders-always quick and friendly. Open air joint so great place to have a cocktail and watch a storm roll in. Set back in a marina, it's a great local hangout.

Favorite local bar. Happy hour provides inexpensive well & beer options and food discounts. Decent food with plenty of options. Easy docking/access for small boats (up to 50'). Friendly staff. Trivia every Monday with Katie! Sunday "Power hour" from 11-12 for food & drink specials.

Thank Patrick H
