We've been coming here for years. Both the food and atmosphere are fantastic. Sit up top and watch the sunset over the bay.

My husband and I went here for Mothers Day. We sat on the top deck at sunset. The weather was perfect, the view was spectacular, and the food to die for! The music added to the atmosphere as well.
