Food and service was good. It was nice to sit outside with a waterfront view. There is no parking and you have find an open spot and then find the pay station and thencome back to your car and put the ticket in your car.

It may be the same as the dinner menu. They have a huge selection, something for everyone. From chicken fingers to seafood.
Do you offer daily happy hour specials? If so, which days, times, and what are the drink price specials? Do you offer any other drink specials?

Unfortunately, I can't answer your questions. I only went there for dinner. I will suggest giving them a call perhaps...!
Is there elevator access to the 2nd floor or only stairs?
