Cozy spot for appetizers and to watch the Sunset. Food was tasty, but not anything memorable. Limited Parking near SeaPort Village shops and restaurants.

We had a lovely lunch here, taking a visiting relative here after picking him up from the airport. Lucky enough to see seals swimming and catching fish in the water next to us! Our food was also excellent and we just really enjoyed our meal here.

We went on new year's eve at 6pm. Location and view were great. Tranquil and cozy, except for a large group of people that were having a meal. They were very loud. Have been here many times without this problem. My Grilled Fish tacos were delicious! My husband ordered seafood enchiladas, they were ok but pleeeaaase do something about the refried beans. They tasted like beans from a can and were warm at best. Not hot like they should be. Messed up the meal. Need better taste or offer whole black beans. They will look, taste, and make the dish look more expensive.

Awesome spot right on the water with great seafood options at a decent price. Lunch pricing is best and menu is similar if not same. Try the Mahi Mahi panini! Out of this world.

Needs a good cleaning. Location is okay, on the water, not the best views, but okay. Interior is a bit "tired". Food was average. Not so special you would want to return. Wait staff was attentive, personable, and didn't have to be asked to provide service. She was the highpoint of the experience.

Staff was great. It was Halloween and all staff were in great costumes. Food was excellent. Interior area was a bit dated. I would definitely return.
