Went here with my parents who raved about it. The drinks were nice pours and the menu had a lot of seafood options. The meats were also great. The portions are definitely generous for the price. I didn't know what to expect at first. I had the Mahi Tacos. They were good but... Remember for the price of a dinner... More

My wife and I always eat here and the fish and other foods are always fresh and tasty. The only issue I have is being a vet they never offer vet discounts where many other restaurants like Chillies does every day. We will always come back here to eat because we love this place. They should consider offering vet discounts.

Besides the lovely view, and it is worth $1 million indeed, the space is mostly taken up by a sports bar with three tv screens. Other screens in restaurant showing sports. Menu was a bit disappointing although onion soup and crab cake were very good.

We had dinner here and the food was good. The lobster salad had real, large pieces of lobster and the crab special was excellent. The best part: the views of the city.

Food was okay better than expected. Service was okay. Place needs a serious scrub. It had a great view but it's hard to notice the view when u feel like your eating in a dirty place.

We went here on a warm night and had the pleasure of sitting outside by the water railing. We waited a bit for our reservation because the place was packed. The outdoor bar was nice but hard to get any seats. The food was decent and the service was good. Enjoyable place in the warm months!

The wife & I frequent this establishment from time to time. It's on the water overlooking Sandy Hook Bay (great views!!). We love the open air venue which when crowded, can be a bit noisy. Nonetheless it's one of the places we frequent more often than not. Food is consistently good and we are rarely disappointed. My wife selected the... More

What a great spot on the water, beautiful views and great seafood. The watermelon Rita was outstanding mad with real melon and garnished with a wedge of melon. Raw clams, fish tacos with large chunks of fish. Great place to enjoy a drink and a meal.
