We had excellent service and great food. We love coming here. I just love the view no matter what season.

Finally a different idea for dining. Nice ambiance. Food is just ok, but the pork chop is the best item on the menu. Shrimp Scampi was chintzy. Always crowded so account for that. Worth the wait.

Great food and atmosphere. Large outdoor patio for nice days. Bar is a bit pricey. Always good specials.

The food is above average. However, if you want to carry on a conversation with your other guests, bring a megaphone. This is the noisiest restaurant I have ever been in during prime dining time. So loud it takes away from the quality of the...More

Very casual. In fact there is a dock to park your boat in the summer. ! I would say dressy casual if you have dinner plans. No shoes, no shirt , no service!😀
