Had dinner here this evening with a small group. The restaurant is on the 2nd floor with great views of the harbor and ocean. I was happy to see the list of fresh fish and the daily fresh fish specials. They had sole, snapper, salmon,...More

We, a group of 7, including 3 younger girls had a craving for sea food and after finding out the Chart House was closed, we found this place. Everything was good. Good views, good service (really great service), we ate until full. Our attendant Lazelle...More
