The place has good food and the interior design has a nice fisherman's vibe to it. The bar area is nice and the people who go there are friendly

We stop here every time we get a chance. This time we had the privilege of being served by Brittany. She did an outstanding job and was as pleasant as could be. The food was great and we had a really nice dinner.

I had the salad bar and salmon, my husband had a burger. Dinner was just ok. I had enough leftovers to eat the next day. Liked the atmosphere. Service was prompt. We would eat there again.
