    Maybe a little above average for a waterfront seafood restaurant. The fish is fresh and they have a large variety. Service was great and the view was nice. They also have a good fish market. We usually buy fish to take home when we are there. Prices are reasonable and the portions are ample.

    Food and service was great. The only reason I rated the food 4 instead of 5 stars was that it was seasoned a little too spicy for my liking. But I will go back many more times, it was awesome.
