If you crave a delicious burger made with REAL beef, this is the place. And the view of the water is lovely. Make sure you get a table by the window. On a side note, the newly renovated washrooms are beautiful!

We came here because it was recommended by our host nearby. We really hated the food. It was just so bad in every way possible. It didn't taste fresh. It was just a shame because the staff was super friendly and even took the cocktails...More
