“Only one minus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

Hamburger and fries were very good. Beer was cold and service was fine. It's a sports bar with eight TVs in view. Only negative is that smoking is allowed at the bar itself and there is no barrier to the restaurant area so the smell drifts everywhere. If you are a non-smoker that can be a little bit bothersome. Otherwise, excellent.

“good sports bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

Very friendly and attentive staff. Bar food is bar food and it fills the bill. Hamburger taco is different and very delicious.. I wish they had beer on tap but their prices are good. Enough TVs so you can get whatever game you want.

“Great Place to Eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Great service, Good food, wonderful views of the water. Super deals on drink specials during "Happy Hour", kinda strange to be able to smoke a cigarette in an eatery. Loved the decor.

“Good for a Quick Bite-”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

We went here for a quick bite right when we got into town for the Labor Day weekend. We ate there and got some things to go for people at our house.

The food is very basic and fine. You do not come here expecting five star dining and we know that. Everything was prepared as asked and came out quickly and was hot. Service was good.

The only downfall for me is always going to be the Smoking. I hate dining in a non-smoke free environment. Luckily there was only one talbe smoking there this year, but still. The smoke is prevalent. We would stay longer and drink more if it were smoke free. Until then, it is always just going to be a quick, in a pinch meal for us.

“Only rich men can eat here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

This place is named incorrectly because no poor man could afford to eat here. Yesterday my husband and I ordered 2 shrimp baskets and an order of fried pickles. We each had 2 beers. With tip the bill was $60.00 !! Get real people. $60!! Yes the shrimp was good-fresh caught and in house breaded, not pre-frozen but really. The service was good and the view of the boats and jet skiis was entertaining but we'll not be returning to this rich mans country club.
