Had drinks here on a Thursday night and it was fun. Casual, outdoorsy, great location on the water. Good drinks, not too pricey. Only food I had was a dozen oysters which were pretty good.

There were not many option for dining on a Monday night in Colonial Beach so based on the TA reviews, and the fact that they were open, we gave this place a try. It was "burger night" which means $2 burgers which are tiny and...More

We had lunch - crab stuffed mushrooms, shrimp tacos, and fried oyster po boy sandwich. The Orange crush vodka drink was good, but the food was better. The mushrooms were loaded with heaps of fresh, local crab meat. Sauteed in butter and spices, we highly...More
