We just went for appetizers which were delicious. They brought us taste treats from the kitchen. The lobster and shrimp cocktails were both excellent. Dinner menu looked good. Lots of fresh fish. Setting is hard to beat. Worth stopping by if even for a cocktail.

I suggest you just go to the restaurant. We didn't have reservations and we went on a Saturday night and were seated right away. There are also lots of neighbouring restaurants if that one doesn't work out.
