Is on the inlet in Garden City area. Excellent view at sunset inside or on top deck!! Reservations usually needed. Limited menu, with some seafood some chicken and beef. Somewhat stuffy staff, little pricey but not bad (getting the view is worth it)

We have gone here many times and has certainly become one of our favorites. The service is always good as is the food selection. The early evening menu has plenty to choose from too and includes drink, salad, and entree.

My number one place to go eat. Love the view and the food. Love the bead that comes out first. The steak and shrimp are so good. Hope to make one more trip before we leave. Great service.
