Love to come here and watch all the yacht people wander around. It's fun to sit at the bar with the locals, and get the happy hour tacos. Also, potato skins are a welcome-heavenly snack when you are slightly intoxo. Bernard is my favorite bartender,...More

Another great restaurant in Yacht Haven. More relaxed and less fancy then Grand Cru. Great for a relaxing island meal.
