My wife’s Chili was not good, her shrimp on her salad didn’t seem fresh. My scallops were good, French fries were very good. But in aggregate average for the price point with the draw being the location

Great question! Casual dress is permitted as boating guests are welcome during lunch and dinner service. Many guests dress up more in the evening but nothing special is required. We hope to see you soon!
