There in a year and this time we called ahead to make sure they had Dungeness crab. We needed 4 and they had three. The fact that they saved them for us was awesome! We were from out of town and that was great service.

In addition to a large menu & delicious food, the restaurant has a very nice setting overlooking the water. You can watch the ferries come & go. We also had excellent service! Our waiter did a great job & got everything right.
