Stopped for lunch because we were craving oysters and peel and eat shrimp. We sat out back on the patio overlooking the park and the water. Service was good but the food was not impressive. Steamed oysters were ok but the shrimp were not. They...More

No complaints about the food. Our waitress was great. We didn’t have to wait long for our food. Although, they really need to get rid of the styrofoam cups... very unsustainable. The beer and wine is served in glassware, their other drinks should too. They...More

Sat on a back patio overlooking the riverfront, and had some VERY tasty fried shrimp. Service was attentive and good.

We felt the choice was mainly burgers and wraps on the menu, but what we had (burgers) was good and reasonably priced. Worth a visit.
