Nice heated patio. We were toasty. Fun to walk and see the yachts before dinner. Waiter very friendly and good service. We each had a Stella and shared crab cake appetizer. Was perfect after a 8-hour drive. We would go back. Enjoy!

We didn't, but I would be ready for a little wait. They have an open bar which allows you to get a drink and walk around the boat dock while you wait.
