“Seals!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This place was amazing.....my entree was yummy and we got to watch a pair of seals play on the pier for over 30mins...price was reasonable. Entertainment was a little loud but maybe I am getting old lol

“Avoid the place”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Went there for dinner and waited way to long for service and our waiter couldn't get anything straight. The food was cold. Great location but won't be back. It takes some poor food to not go back to a restaurant for me. Bad Food

“Worse Than Terrible”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

It's amazing this place stays in business. If it wasn't for the bar crowd they probably would be closed. From a rude hostess making customers wait to be seated when the dining room was practically empty, to poor service and very mediocre food. The menu was very limited in choices of seafood, and the prices were outrageous. The restaurant is quite old and looks and smells dirty. We watched as 10 customers came and turned right around and left without being seated. Definitely would not return under any circumstances.

“The view”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Delicious, delicious brunch...one of my favorites.
Not a bad seat in the house. Has a bar as well. Can be a little pricey for the whole family

“Very good and simple”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

I really liked this restaurant. The view is beautiful. We had the chance to see a seal swimming in the ocean in front of the restaurant. I had a delicious shrimp cocktail and seafood brochette. They have very good sangria, my friends loved it. (I am a wine drinker)
The prices are reasonable.
