We sat on the deck and enjoyed some drinks before we departed on the ferry. My husband had a spicy margarita which he loved and ordered again. The chicken wings were terrific. We chose to eat them with out the sauces and they were tender...More

The best fish on the island. We ate at Steve’s steak house and it like the Arby’s of the island, do not go. Blue water the best!

We ate here our first night in Catalina. It was a nice evening and we are outdoors with overhead heaters. Good drinks, good food. Beware: water rationing so you will have to pay for a bottle of water. Minimal charge but just beware.More

Went here for drinks. Sat out on the deck and watched the activity in the bay. A place for fairly big groups, we saw what looked like 2 bachelorette parties there the evening we were there. Didn't eat just had wine.

We ate here for the first time on our last visit, as there always seems to be a crowd and we wanted to see why. We were seated on the deck, which has an excellent view of the ocean, Casino and parts of Avalon. It...More

You're actually sitting on a pier the setting is amazing as is the service. Our waiter couldn't have been more helpful. The food was just OK. But your on a small island and it didn't matter.More

Very good choice for one of the better restaurants on the island. It's a bit dear to the wallet, so budget wisely. The server gave me a cup, instead of a bowl of chowder. I called it to his attention, since I only enjoy paying...More
