Great view, I will never eat there again. Food is terrible, staff is slow, slow, slow. No one appears to be in control. Hard to get s glass of water.

be sure and go at 6 pm for wonderful sunsets. The food was OK but I only ordered a sandwich which was tasty. The service was a little slow but not as bad as next door at the Catamaran.
