What People are Saying

Great Spot

Great small spot on the water with lots of outside seating to bring the pups! The food is fabulous and the staff is very pleasant and attentive.



Delicious casual dining food, nice view and hard working, friendly staff. Very busy during lunch hours. You just gotta be patient. It’s worth the wait. We shared the organic greens with a generous portion of chicken. We also had the burger sliders with lots of fries.”
