Good food, decent service, good live entertainment and an amazing view. My drink was not made correctly but it was tolerable. Food was good. Large portion for the price. My husband really enjoyed his burger and fries. I would eat here again.

The food was tasty...just way too expensive for the tiny portion. Got the seafood platter. 3 tiny scallops, 3 shrimp, tiny piece of flounder. The crab cake was the only decent size, for $30. The view is great, and friendly service.

Nice little spot with great views of the sound. Food, drinks and service were decent. Location was good, with shops and a cafe in the same plaza. Worth checking out.
