Fresh food, great menu with many choices, delicious. Sunset dinner s are a great value. Worth the wait anytime. Professional and friendly service. Ask for a booth by the window.

The food was very good and the portion sizes more than adequate. It has waterfront views of many of the trawling ships and activity boats. The wait staff was very professional and friendly and the prices more than reasonable.

The food here is excellent but the place is very noisy. We had reservations for inside that they honored right on time. It is almost impossible to get a table outside on a nice summer evening.

If there was any alcohol it would have been white wine. I don't think any of the seafood menu items included pork/chicken/meat broth.
