The food was good, not bad at all, but not great. Loved being on the water. Server/bartender was a nice guy. Cheap eats. Nice to find.

You want good food and cold beer? This is the place! Jim, the cook, is the best! Keep in mind they take only cash, but they do have an ATM right at the door! Uncomplicated but good, menu, no wait staff, paper plates and cups,...More
