This Restuarant was a nice place to have laughs w coworkers, eat shrimp and have a glass of Chardonay while watching the boats coming in to dock. The Orange Crush was a favored drink of the night by my colleagues.

We enjoyed a leisurely late lunch with a friend. It was warm enough for us to sit on the porch. Our service and food was very good. The crab cakes were good as was the teriyaki yellow fin tuna.
