“Good food, good service, good atmosphere”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

We stopped here for a light dinner after golfing. We weren't disappointed. The view of the marina during sunset provided a great atmosphere. There was a musician performing - light listening during dinner. We ordered the Harbor Shrimp dinner, grilled, with a salad and also the Crab Cappicola flatbread. Both were excellent - light, not heavy at all. The salad was freshly made as were the seasonal vegetables. The flatbread was large, plenty for a main course. This place is also a dance club and the inside décor was amazing! Very unique! Definitely worth stopping here for drinks and/or dinner!

“Expected More”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

We read the reviews here and tried the prime rib. First of all, we ordered drinks inside and those were substandard and the bartender was no where to be found to correct the drinks, so we went outside to the bar. That bartender was totally into doing work and didn't look around at the customers so we decided to go to our table. The first bartender came out to take our order. We ordered clam chowder. I've made soup for years and know a frozen soup reheated and that's what we got, not good. The prime rib and garlic mashed potatoes were good except way too much fat. Probably 4 oz fat on a 12 oz prime rib. So all in all, disappointed in the service but meat & potatoes good. So if you can handle less than good service go. For us, we'll find another place with both good food and good service.

“Nice varied seating outside, great view of harbor.”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Went for a private party r/t bike week activities. A great set-up for enjoying a nice day or evening dockside. Lots of parking. Well decorated in a truly blue scheme. Would make a great 1st date location for a special couple. Casual but smart.

“Fine outside, not up to par inside”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

I've been here several times with a large group. The service has always been poor and the food is good to fair. The interior needs lots of cleaning an repair. If you go for lunch an eat outside it's enjoyable due to the view. Otherwise, I would not recommend this place.
