The fish tacos ($15) are unique and to die for. Three thin blue toasted shells with tempura'd fish, feta cheese, avocado. Prompt service. A favorite lunch spot, especially after the lunch crowd.

We had the oysters Rockefeller and a crab cake sandwich with the parsley potatoes and followed by the key lime pie! Oh my so good! Also had a few local IPA beers on draft! We enjoyed this place so much and would definitely return! ❤️

Not sure. Maybe for larger parties
We are planning a get together for approximately 18 classmates that are in the area. It will be a follow up to our 50 th reunion. Would it be possible to make reservations for that many for lunch on the water?
