We sat down immediately after entry, and our drinks were served very quickly. We placed our orders, and my son decided on the fresh Caribbean lobster so we went to pick one from the lobster pool! They didn't have any under 4 pounds ($20/pound 😳)...More

Service and food was great. Atmosphere was so nice. Being able to see the bay, and all the boats at night was great. It was open, and the breeze wasn't bad at all...

We had the shrimp kabobs and a blackened grouper and both were perfectly done. The shrimp kabobs came with various sauces that were very good. We sat looking out over the harbor on a perfect evening. The waiter was very funny and was very attentive.

We stopped-in here once for dinner and enjoyed good, fresh, seafood and excellent drinks. The wait-staff was just OK. The seating area is located on a part of the dock of the Dutch-side inner harbor and marina, so it has a good view of the...More
