We had salads - the summer special was good with beef. Daughter had chicken pasta dish, which was good but shrimp would go better with shrimp. Good beer at reasonable prices. Can't beat the sunset or the view.

I ate here with a party of 6 for lunch, and none of us left unsatisfied. I had a tough choice between the Natty Boh Brat and the fish taco, but given the proximity to the water I went with the latter. It was delicious,...More
