A great place to sit and look at the view of the harbor. The sea food lunch was of good quality and was served by helpful/friendly staff. A great place while on a bus tour.

Had good family lunch. Most hospitable and pleasant staff. Recommend the generous soup/ sandwich combo with a glass of Murphy's for lunch. Fish courses were very tasty although a little small for the cost. Would recommend.
