Food was good though there were not as many seafood choices as I expected. The wine list included a lot of local wines and many fun drinks.

We have visited this on-the-water restaurant several times over the last few years either by boat or by car. It's one of our favorites in that area. The path from the parking lot is a bit unusual but well worth the efforts. Recently we were...More

We got salads and they were so tasty. The sweet potato fries are wonderful as well. We were able to eat outside and the view on the water is so nice. The parking is a bit tricky if they get crowded. The restaurant is right...More
