When this place first opened in 1999, we got a flyer with a coupon. We have been going ever since for specials occasions (usually my birthday). They have fantastic, creative rolls, a kids menu that comes with edamame and ice cream, udon with excellent broth, casual environment with indoor and outdoor limited seating, heat lamps, and a cozy atmosphere. We like to look at the boats and yachts just in front. It is right next to Blue Water Grill.

This spot may be a bit hidden but it is worth the effort. Casual, waterfront, such friendly service and absolutely delicious sushi at reasonable prices. I could eat here over and over again wanting to try everything on the menu. Even when we asked for a modification the waitress smiled and said of course. The interior is small and there is an outdoor deck (heated the night we dined). Go!

Food was excellent. Sushi and sashimi was great. The people were great - natural and interesting. Good nama saki. You might miss this as it is at the end of the same pier as Bluewater Grill, which is also good, but this genuinely great! Keep on down the pier to the end, for a very good experience. Looking forward to bringing the wife here.

The best sushi, awesome wait staff, really good atmosphere overlooking the harbor. Make sure you plan ahead and book a reservation, They only have a couple tables. Enjoy!
