If you are looking for a place to eat and drink while watching the boats go by then this is your spot. The food is pretty good but the Margaritas are great. I recommend them by the pitcher!

Mexican food was just run of the mill nothing exciting. The entire restaurant is tired and old. Needs to be updated and spruced up. The good thing is the view of the water. It's right on the water.
