Its a very good place to eat fish and to see the ocean from the upper deck. Good music and there are wonderful natural scrubs at the gift shop, try it.

We stopped for a late lunch, and had a great time. Lunch was very tasty, service was awesome, atmosphere excellent! We had the Giant Beer Battered Fish Sandwich and the Swimming Rueben - Both were worth writing home about. Will definitely come here again!More
