We brought our two boys 4yrs and 11 months and had a enjoyable time. It was a beautiful day so we enjoyed lunch on the deck outside. The views are terrific. The menu has great choices for all. Service was excellent!

The burger was good and the chips were homemade. The chips were a pleasant surprise. A storm came up while we were eating on the deck. We had to move over so we didn't get soaked. The waiters did close the storm curtains.

A great casual spot on the waterfront. Lots of menu choices, from burgers to seafood and salads. Good beer and wine selection. We shared the day's fish special and each ordered a side salad--all tasty, and plenty for us.

Free water but no sodas and extremely expensive lemonades. Bread sub par and dry. 90% sure there was spit on my burger, what a tolerant northerner.

Fortunate to have arrived at a quiet time (a Tuesday lunch) and were seated after a few minutes wait, on the waterfront patio overlooking the harbor. We were served by Steph who was both efficient and very pleasant. Our selections arrived within a reasonable time,...More
