Had the Hawaiian pizza for lunch. It was fine but nothing special. Restaurant is in a good central location and service was good. Just didn’t find the pizza to be that flavorful but I would still return if in the area & try another selection.

Nothing wowed us here, but the food, atmosphere, and service were all good. There aren't a ton of options outside of the slightly overpriced marina, but this one is worth recommending.

A reservation was made for dinner as a "must visit" restaurant due to all the good reviews. I must say my wife and I were a bit disappointed for this normal casual restaurant. Absolutely NO BYO wine - and this you are told when asked...More
