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.

A simple place for waterfront eating. The food is good. The place is casual. You may come by boat. The Sunday morning special is a true value. Must order between 11 am and 12 noon.

This is a nice little restaurant / bar on the waterfront. I have been here several times. One night we even saw an alligator floating against the current. I wasn't a big fan of that but I'm a fan of chilling out at this place with friends. Food prices are not that bad.

Was recommended and we were glad we listened! Sunday power hour (11A-12P) is a DEAL! Fish tacos, mimosas, chicken wings, Bloody Mary's, and draft beer were all on special and were excellent! You can tell it is good as it was packed immediately after opening and was mostly locals. Will recommend and frequent again.

Thank J G
