We only had a snack and drinks here but it has a good menu and a lively bar area. It is on the top floor above the Maritime Museum. Staff helpful even though we were not having a full meal

We recently went with friends for happy hour and sunset dinner. It’s a great place to sit upstairs at sunset over the harbor. Good food and drink in a laid back setting.
