The menu is short. As the other two choices were upscale McMillan Dining or pizza at the cafe, we settled for this. The restaurant was packed with 20-30’ wait. We ordered Fish and Chips and a Burger for dinner. The batter on the fish was...More

We ate there twice last week simply because it is quite good! The NE Clam Chowder and crab bisque were excellent, and the "Chop-Chop" salad with chicken, crab, shrimp, mushrooms, ginger, noodles and lettuce was "irresistible"--our server said it was the most popular menu item!More

Excellent location, menu selection and prices are reasonable without being super fancy. No parking. No reservations (first come first served, we've got a 25 minute waitlist)

Beautiful spot to eat and relax by the water. We went for lunch and ended up returning another night for dinner! Our meals were great and the service was perfect. Try the crab/artichoke quesadilla for a yummy, different treat. Salads were huge, fresh and tasty.More

If memory serves me correctly there were very few vegetarian entrees. The only one I remember is the Caesar Salad.

Description
What better way to spend a summer afternoon than relaxing in this over-the-water restaurant dining on coastal-casual cuisine and sipping flavorful cocktails? The deck sits over harbor, offering diners the only sunset view over water on the island. Fresh salads, creative grill sandwiches and famous BBQ ribs are menu favorites.
