You can't beat the harbor view and the food is good. Service is good. Sit up top for the best view. They also allow leashed dogs which is a real bonus for dog owners. A nice relaxing meal.

Killer view but service model is jacked up....order this here, order that there, pay there, bathroom key, etc, etc. We literally ordered beer, burgers and oysters from three different people. Beer is served in plastic cups too which is always a disappointment.

We came here 3x for beer as they have a good selection and an AMAZING view of the water! We skipped the food as it was all deep fried and we didn't particularly feel like that gut bomb. Gorgeous view - definitely stop by!

Watch the ferry boats come and go, the seaplanes land and take off, and the boat traffic. Good food, great drinks, excellent views.

The food was served VERY promptly and the servers were friendly... but it was pretty pricey for what you got. On the other hand, there is a good view, and if you are waiting for the ferry, it's pretty conveniently located, and you won't have...More

With two counters to order at this restaurant you have to go to one for burgers or tacos and another for the fried seafood and appetizers. We ended up having more than one check as some wanted food from each counter and some wanted food...More
