Sat at the Tiki Bar and enjoyed the outside and the boats. Good menu. Riley was our waitress and she was attentive. Shared the steak skewers and the salad and a brew and ice tea.

Good selection of ribs, pork, and fried foods. I liked the cream corn and fried okra. The bread pudding with lemon sauce is absolutely amazing.

Ribs could have been served hotter and just a little over cooked. Other menu items were acceptable. Lots of atmosphere at this waterside restaurant overlooking the marina
