Great evening table side overlooking the bay. Server was great and very responsive but the food disappointed. Very little healthy on the menu and the portions were huge and expensive. My husbands pie was tasteless and obviously from a mass producer.

Food average: could not find crab or shrimp in the dip . . .Service: wait staff needs training. Sitting on the porch under a light breeze was delightful. Better food other places.
