“Wonderful place for a mid afternoon break!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Great gem of a place tucked away behind the Torpedo Factory. High tops with good wine and cocktails, along with a musician of some genre often serenading on the walkway. Gas heaters keep the space warm and inviting in the evenings, extending the season along the other wise nippy waterfront.

Limited, but very affordable menu options.

“Great Service”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We were promptly seated and although it was busy, we weren't rushed and all we had was a drink for each of us.
Very friendly service from all the folks.
I will come back.

“Great place to grab a sandwich”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Great place to have lunch. Friendly and fun atmosphere. The view was great and food was tasty and fresh. I enjoyed the Cuban sandwich and soup combo and my husband had a turkey BLT on sour dough bread. The open table concept may present a problem during busy time standing around for a table. We sat one afternoon outside on the harbor side beautiful view! The line to pick up the food is better because of the beepers they hand out if you already have a table. Unfortunately if you’re sitting in the back or along the window it tends to gets very crowded with the long lines for the bathroom overlapping the drink line.

“Too many good places around, don't stop here.”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Not good service, no friendly employees, and the food is the same as at their other restaurant. I like to give good reviews, but this one is just too rough for me to give them a positive rating. Go elsewhere so you're not disappointed.
