Food here is really great! They changed owners/name recently but the menu remained the same just cooked much tastier! Their patio has beautiful views and staff are very friendly! It's our new "go to" in Brighton!

Had a snack by the boat launch- very relaxing and service was efficient and fast. The view was fantastic. The menu good. Waiter was friendly and helpful. The place was not busy at the time, so we could relax with peace and quiet.
