The bar was filthy. The bartender, Don or Dan, is the manager and he is a slob and a thief. After lunch he gave us the check and we asked him about the charges and he said that the way he charged us was "cheaper"....More

I don't believe they take reservations. Just get your name on the list and enjoy shopping at the shops at the pier while you wait!
