Great food but at what cost. The last two times we have been there someone added money to our bill after we added the tip and signed the credit card receipt. My wife caught it both times. She attempted to speak with a manger but they wouldn't return her call. Finally she dropped a bomb on their Facebook page and... More

The food was fresh and cooked to perfection. The drinks could have been better as the flavor wasn't the best.

Easter weekend we enjoyed an early evening dinner for a group of eight out on the restaurant deck. The chef's special of snapper topped with crab and shrimp on a bed of risotto was excellent. Our Belgian family especially enjoyed the sirloin steak cooked rare. I shared a cheesecake for dessert. We also enjoyed the attentive service.

Although they were aware of their system double billing customer's credit cards, they did nothing about it, UNLESS the customer called and complained. They would not credit my card for the double billing and insisted that I contact my credit card company to resolve the issue. So sad I'm sure many customers do not check their charges and will never... More

Myself, my husband and two sons were visiting from Scotland. We decided to try the West End Restaurant after seeing a sign for it on the road we were on & we weren't disappointed! The food was brilliant (I'm famous for never finishing a meal, but I made light work of the steak dinner I had here!) The staff were... More

Restaurant over the water with good food and atmosphere. Kid friendly. Make reservations. You can go downstairs after to have a drink and karaoke.

The food is good but more bar like in nature and slightly over priced. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. They have a huge projection screen tv for sports and sits on the water.

Nice view of the bay side and marina. Food is very generous portions and is very fresh tasting. Cooked just right. Service is attentive without being annoying. All in all a very good meal. This is the 3rd time we have been and it is very consistent.

Eight of us (including 3 kids) enjoyed a nice meal here. Loved the waterfront atmosphere, very relaxing. Great cocktails and service but the live music by Motown Larry is what really made for a great night out!

We were looking for something dog friendly and dining on the water, this place had just what we needed. The lower level is right on the water and very casual. Only issue someone might have is there were several birds but they never were a problem for us. The food was great and much larger portions than we expected. I... More
