It is hard traveling with a dog. This restaurant actually allows the dog on the patio and serves them a bowl of water. Food was delicious and nice scenery to look at (marina).

Wide ranging and creative menu, consistently delicious. Really fresh seafood, wedge salad and hanger steak are favorites. Reservations an absolute must on weekends.

Staff is excellent, we a free appetizer because our server was so busy and didn't get our drinks for some time. Meals are in mid 20s, pizzas 15....we wouldn't go b.s. k because price of food doesn't match quality at all. But servers were great.

Not un-kid friendly at all, but I would say that this is one of those places that people go to for a calm, relaxing meal. So, it depends on the kids! Hope that helps a little!

Yes This restaurant is kid friendly for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However I would suggest a different restaurant for dinner such as Redamak's
