Our server was lovely but the food was only ok. We ordered a crab dip appetizer that was not good (and it was taken off our bill). The kids liked their mac and cheese and my fajitas were fine.

It was a cool but sunny January day and our stop here sure warmed us up. We warmed up with hot soups and my wife had a hot shrimp dish and I had the standard burger. The food was quite good, the service as well. A warmer day would have enticed us to stay longer to enjoy the great view.

Best place to watch the sunset go down behind the bridge with a Happy Hour margarita. Get there before 6pm! Monica is an awesome bartender. 👍🏻Love the waterfront dining patio. It's perfect during nice Spring weather. Good food, good service, good friends prevailed! 🌮
