I think the uniforms for the servers that identify as female are rather sexist. The white shirts were fine. But there seem to be pressure to wear the short possible khaki colored skirts. Even shorts would’ve been a little more modest, given the demand of the job. The male identifying servers were more reasonably dressed in shorts and shirts. We sat on the upper deck and it was a beautiful day. It was our anniversary and we were treated very well. We ordered a crab sandwich and the fish tacos and the portions were generous and delicious.

Excellent Sunnyside burger and fries! I think the burger could use a bit more seasoning or extra cheese.
