“Great view”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

This is a two level restaurant; the top label for family and older people and the bottom or patio for the younger crowd; that is were the bar is located. Although it took a long time for the food to come out, but the food was very good. We tired the mango margarita for the first time, but the flavor didn't mix that well.

Many of the tables in the upper section have a view of the docks. will definitely return to the restaurant.

“Best Calimari this side of the ocean.”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Great food, outstanding atmosphere in the lounge with quite a remarkable happy hour menu and this includes Saturday until 4pm. The Calamari dinner is half price in the lounge during happy hour as well as other dishes. This is on a Marina and big windows give you an excellent view of it. They give you so much Calamari steak you can almost spit it. If you like Calamari this is to die for. After your meal in the lounge you can go out and visit all the shops at the Marina, have an ice cream cone for desert or hit another bar like El Torito.

“Happy Hour is your best bet”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

The restaurant is dated, think 70s, but the happy hour is also 70s. Good offerings abound, such as fish and chips, calamari steaks, burger and fries, salads, and chicken tacos are just some of the items offered at very affordable prices. Throw in wine, beer or cocktails at the best prices in the harbor and you will understand why the large lounge fills up by 5:00 every evening. Very popular with the early retiree and up crowd. Entertainment is also offered for those who wish to continue the evening. Worth giving it a try to decide for yourself if it is your cup of tea.

“Good view”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Loved the happy hour, although they should do the same Mai Tais as the Wind And Sea. Same owner..
Wonderful coconut shrimp. Not as good ambiance as the wind and sea.

“Good brunch, view, and service”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

The Sunday brunch was wonderful with a large variety on the menu, including bottomless champagne. The atmosphere is vintage if dining upstairs. We found the downstairs portion of the restaurant after the fact, and wished we had chosen to eat there instead. However, if you are looking for a good Sunday brunch and don't mind vintage, I would recommend it.
