Nice laid back place to just enjoy the view. The nachos were soooooo good! My husband and I split the half order and couldn't finish it. The shrimp on the nachos tasted great! I'd come back here if we were in town again.

Great views! The nachos are like something I've never seen before- must try. Ceviche was fantastic! Coconut shrimp delicious! Must try!

The ambiance was nice but the food and service...not so much. My boyfriend and I both ordered the fish tacos- his blackened, mine grilled. They both came out looking and tasting the same. The fish was cooked well, but lacked in flavor. The calamari was...More

As always great food. Must stop when visiting SPI. this is the "locals" hangout. The seafood platter for 4 has the perfect mix of seafood variety.

Went to hear Lesley play and had lunch while we were there. Leskey was terrific. My husband had the chowder. Lits of clams, good flavor, but quite thick. I had calamari. It was not greasy. Our friend had the stuffed shrimp. She liked them. Ger...More
