Great place to bring kids. I like the outdoor area and appetizers and pizza. I have always had nice servers although at times it can be very busy, especially on a warm weekend. But no rush. Just enjoy!

Great spot for brunch with something for everyone-super friendly and helpful staff, extensive food and unique beer menu, kid ( a playground with a bounce house) and dog-friendly ( outside patio only), good and free live music ( check out website for a list of weekly performers)
$:entree will set-you back an average of $20
Tip: parking is often tricky on weekends,esp after 11 am. For special occasions like Mother’s day and the like-reservations recommended. For guaranteed patio seating- reservation recommended.

The selections on the menu were impressive and the prices reasonable. We had the blackened sole and chicken piccata and both were outstanding. The portions were more than adequate. Service was excellent. We liked that it is so family friendly even though we didn't have children with us. We sat outdoors and it was simply delightful.

I've been going here since I was a wee girl in the 60's back when it was the iconic Dominics. When t closed down I was heartbroken at the end of an era. But no! It's better than ever!! The amazing Phil Leah of grateful Dead fame and his wife took over and created a masterpiece. And a very popular one at that. The interior is freshened up but still has the nautical theme reminiscent of the good old days. the patio and pier dining is nicer than ever. You can still pull your boat up to the dock and come ashore for a cocktail, a nibble, a meal, or a show! The expansive lot next door has been turned into a world class outdoor music venue featuring great musicians in a casual setting that even has an area for kids. And you can bring the dog too. If you want to sit down for dinner following a show you are well advised to make reservations or the wait can be 45- an hour. The food is fairly simple but very fresh and well presented. Service is very good and the atmosphere is well, very cool. I've been there with friends and several times with my mother who is in her 80s. She loves it too.
