Great sandwiches. Try the crab cakes and their version of a philly cheese steak sandwich. Excellent view of the intracoastal waterway and very nice bar.

This place is on the water but all of dining is indoors. There are many windows in the dining rooms and there is a bar in the main room. Great for beer, chili and made to order hamburgers. A fun place.

We live in South Harbour Village, so this place is within walking distance from our house. The location is great as it is right on the Intracoastal waterway. The only reason we do not frequent more often is that the prices seem a little high...More
