Food was just OK. Everything is an extra charge. I'm surprised they didn't charge us for napkins and utensil rental. 2 of us asked for a side of BBQ sauce and we were brought 2 very small cups- that was $1.00 extra! Besides what you...More

Do not go here. Food was horrible. It's scene of boaters pumping gas in their boats is not what you wanna see when eating cold food. Did I mention the service? HORRIBLE TOO. This place should've stayed closed. The only thing going for them is...More
