Once again, the meal took 54 minutes to come to our table. Ordered tea, got water. I think the place needs to be cleaned.

This place has closed and changed its name with the recent sale of the marina. The new place has the same fantastic (but totally wasted) potential and hired the same type of poor, confused personnel which provide the same ridiculously slow service. Too bad.

I've been here numerous times and consistently found the atmosphere great, the food, fair, and the service, fair! Not much else to say unless you just like to sip and chat, and take in the beautiful views! A "little pricey" for what you get!
