“Nice view, disappointing food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

Very nice place inside and out. Our server Heather was great. Food was disappointing. Fish spread was great but the saltines where stale. The wings where good. The Cuban was all bread with little meat. The fried fish sandwich was cold and soggy. Onion rings where huge and good but would be better if they thinned the batter a little.
Enjoyed the craft beers on tap.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

This is a great relaxing place with a great view of the inlet. Watched dolphins swim as we ate. Portions are large. Ask for kristal. Great waitress to boot! Will be back. For sure when one if the bands Krystal told us about are there. Too hot for outdoor this visit but outdoor looked great also

Good food - the bucket of shellfish was great. Good atmosphere when live music on and the drinks are big and cheap!
