Love the atmosphere and music. The food is amazing and so are the drinks. The staff is amazing as well. I know the owners very well. Dave is an amazing guy who knows how to take care of his customers.

Hard yacht has a good location. Food is solid but nothing special. Staff is friendly, standard bar menu. The parking can be a real challenge at times. Not the easiest place to find.

We had fisherman's grilled cheese and Chesapeake chicken both are very good with friendly service and a nice view. This is a casual water/boat view small restaurant at the end of a residential street. The people there are friendly and inviting and food was tasty.

Docked our friend's boat up to the Hard Yacht. It's claimed to be "themed after" old Schooner Wharf in Key West. Food was delicious. They had an assortment of menu options (including vegetarian). Live music. Try the Orange Crush- served by the pitcher!

Fantastic place on the water, breezy, great views, good drinks, food is good, live music is enjoyable, although a little loud, but you know what they say about that. Would love to go back.
