The food was great, and the staff was very friendly. Also, the views from the second deck were second to none. Would totally recommend eating here.

I'd call the restaurant.
Can a group of about 30 make a dinner reservation? Do you have a small function room or open area to accommodate ? Would be for dinner. Thank you
