Overall a really good experience. Reservation was for 715 we arrive about 705. Seated at 712. Waiter was great, greeted us right away, explained the specials and answered any questions. Drinks were prompt and a really good pour. Food was good and tasty. The table was right at the window with great views of the bay and passing boats. We will be back.

We were visiting from Colorado and wanted some seafood. This place was friendly, on the water and the food was great. We had a nice seaside view but it was cold sitting by the window.
Would highly recommend!

We have been going here for years. Brooke was the best server we have had there and the manager who I believe has been a server for years has really stepped up and made this a wonderful place. Well done

Had a wonderful experience; the wine & food was terrific. Towards the end of the night a great band was playing which had us stay an additional hour. We enjoyed 3 hours of dining, it was very memorable. Can’t wait to do it again.

The food was great and the atmosphere was lovely. However, we ended up paying more for a couple of specials than anticipated. Our waiter spoke too fast and we failed to ask the market price on the specials. Obviously, we were shocked when we received our bill.
