Nice view, and service was good, the food was pretty good, but bit too pricey for what you were getting.

We sat outside on the deck and enjoyed the gorgeous views. I ordered the lobster roll and was delighted with each bite I put in my mouth! The roll was overflowing with huge lumps of lobster and I was happily forced to eat it with...More

Sit on the top deck and look out over the harbor. Very weather dependent as it can get cold and windy quickly. If weather is a problem, eat downstairs. The view isn't as good but the food is adequate.

Sat outside on the upstairs deck with great views. Food was good and waitress friendly. What you're really paying for here is the atmosphere.

The upstairs bartender is horrible. She served us last summer and I can't believe she is still working there. I can't begin to describe how lacking in customer service she is. It's amazing how one person can ruin such a nice place.

Top marks for location, right on the water. Service was super friendly and the food came out quickly. Sushi was incredibly fresh and delish. We took the water taxi from the Winnetu Hotel and we stepped off onto the dock with the restaurant right there....More

Hi Christina, We serve lunch from 11 A.M. until 5 P.M. but almost everything you can get at lunch is also available at dinner as well. And if there is anything you see from the lunch menu that isn't on the dinner menu feel... More

I think they take reservations if you call- it might be party of 6 or more. It usually not a long wait.
