This restaurant is huge and overlooks the water. You're even able to get in innertubes and they'll send drinks down to you on a pulley. A great place to eat and drink.

Did not expect a 5 star dining experience, and probably was not even a four star. But chips and salsa (aka Pico de gallo) and our blackened fish tacos were fresh and tasty. Place is quite airy, view is nice and staff is friendly
