This place is a good choice for lunch with affordable prices. This restaurant is built out over the water, so watching the boat traffic is half the fun. Try the lemonade! It is worth the trip.

We didn't have the friendliest/speediest service here, but the food was good and the view was nice. I would definitely go back.
