If it wasn't for the smile of the waiter, there would be nothing good to say about this restaurant. The food was bland, soggy and less than mediocre! Do not waste your money on this place.

Grilled fishes were good but a little greasy. Other than it was fine. We liked the patio seating even though it was a little chilly side that evening. Service was good & the food came out relatively fast.

Thought the food was excellent (had scallops and shrimp) but most in our group were a bit disappointed with the portion size.

Fresh salad. We thought the salad came with hard boiled egg - it didnt,but the server brought us some for our salad. NICE! Huge, fresh salads. Other diner had sea bass - it was OK , portion was a little on the small side. Food us usually predictably good, but pricey.

This was our splurge meal at the end of a trip. We had a super friendly server, fun activity kids sheet, and the food was really delicious. The treat factor was delivered.

King crab legs were really good but the server forgot to bring us bread and my baked potato was cold. The burger and fries my husband had were good. Nice atmosphere, decent prices.

Nice assortment of dishes. Waitstaff friendly. I ordered my fish with the mango salsa, which I was informed would be an extra $1. No prob. It comes out and I could count on one hand how many pieces of mango were on top of my mahi mahi. Little disappointed. Fish was cooked perfectly. Little overpriced, but it is a bit... More

There were five of us and everyone really enjoyed their food. From the fresh Sourdough bread to the excellent Clam Chowder and our meals. It was very good. Our server was excellent and she was well informed of the menu. The noise level was low enough where we could talk comfortably. I don't have one negative thing to say about... More

Got there at 5:30pm on a Saturday night. No wait, but we sat on the patio. They have heaters, and enclosed the area with plastic sheets. However, we sat by the door, so cold air from the restaurant was coming inside our seating area. Not a problem for me, but my wife and 5 year old son sat further away... More
