Our orders were wrong. Party of twelve people. Not just one plate but several. No refills on our drinks. Employees standing around talking. With this location I doubt they care. Eat somewhere else and just have desert here. My brothers BLT was terrible.

Good food is just half the attraction here. While you are eating, just a few feet away people are pulling fish over the railings. That keeps the diners jumping up and down and calling out the next new catches ! Great fun.

Would say 'no' from memory. There was some deck seating but can't recall access to the deck without going through the restaurant.
