They have good happy hour specials. $2 domestic bottles and half price apps until 6pm. The view of the water is great from the back deck. I would definitely go back and recommend this place to someone else.

While visiting family in the area as we do every year we were pleasantly surprised to see that this place was finally rebuilt and open after a fire destroyed it some years back. We decided to give it a try after looking at the menu posted out front. We were seated on the outside covered patio area where it was cooler an enjoying a nice breeze off the water. The view was beautiful and the atmosphere great. Our server was pleasant and we were given excellent service. We tried the crab soups ( one was cream of crab and one was a crab and vegetable), that were excellent and we had the wraps that have chicken and crab in them. The food was good and the portions were large. In fact the day we ate lunch there we only had a snack for dinner since we were still full from our lunch.
If it is a nice day and you are looking for a fun and scenic place to enjoy a relaxing meal I would recommend trying this restaurant.

We were there for lunch during the week so it wasn't busy. Comfortable seating inside and out, large open restaurant where the tables are not pushed near each other. Good menu with many choices, good service and affordable. I looked at their dinner menu, it looked great.

Enjoyable meal while watching the boats come in at sunset. Restaurant was quite busy for a weekday evening but service was great. As others have mentioned there is very little parking on site. It's best to find a spot in the public lots and enjoy a short walk along the pier to the restaurant. Portions are very large, you won't go away hungry. We sampled many dishes, all good, but our favorite was the steamed shrimp.

Visited this restaurant for the first time this past Saturday night. When we arrived we were told there was a 40 minute wait. Surprisingly we were seated within 15 minutes. Our server was pleasant, brought our drinks, salads, and appetizer out promptly. Unfortunately, our entrees were nowhere to be found. Despite being assured multiple times over at least a 30 minute period that our entrees "would be right out," they didn't appear. When the couple seated about 20 minutes behind us had enjoyed their salads and appetizers and were then served their entrees, I decided to be more assertive. By this point, it was quite chilly (we were seated outside) and asked to be moved inside. We were then seated at a high-top table - IN THE BAR. Our server tried to be gracious and offered to treat us to a dessert - but by the end of the night we were just ready to get home. We were at the restaurant for more than two hours -- no alcohol and no dessert. That said, the crab imperial was delicious, the sweet potato cooked to perfection with yummy cinnamon butter. As for our appetizer (calamari), it was tasty but not remarkable. I don't know that I'll return - we spent about $88 (including a 20% tip) for a pretty frustrating evening. For the money and my love of seafood, we'll more likely go to the Ruddy Duck or Stoney's the next time we're in town.
