Food was about what you'd expect from this type of place (sandwiches/burgers). Located right on the water. Service was good.

Visited on a Saturday night for dinner. The burgers and fries were good, but the filets were terrible. Do not bother with the "high end" dishes and stick with the traditional bar food dishes and you cannot go wrong.More
