Generous portions, I had the tuna steak and a salad. More than enough! Soups, salads, sandwiches, plate meals, you name it!

We chose this place for its location on the water. It was a beautiful place to enjoy the sunset. We also enjoyed our food- especially the appetizer of fried green tomatoes with shrimp.

We've been dining here for years (including under former ownership) and love dining by the water with a glass of wine to watch the sunset. Often stop for lunch on Fridays for the Popcorn Shrimp special, huge servings and wonderful!
