Once again, it’s a great location, nice dining atmosphere, and consistently good staff. My BLT salad again was very good, but the two Seafood Bisques was down right awful. So that will come off our list for next time.

Drinks were good and strong! Spinach salad was very good and so were the happy hour sliders. Great view and noisy crowd. We would go back.

Perched at the entrance to the East Basin of Dana Point Harbor, the wide windows provide fantastic views of the passing boats, and a great setting for the tasty food. The friendly staff are a help with the menu, and our fish dishes were great.

We sat in the restaurant with a view of the ocean and had the Mahi Mahi and wine. Food was prepared to our liking and service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We would both go back if we are in the area again.
