Rather crowded seating area but ok. Typical American food menu. Most evenings features live music. Food is good. Our grandson loved the "Philly Cheese Steak" sandwich.

I have always loved visiting this little Cafe. This year, not so much. Our waitress continuously got every little request wrong. Daiquiri was terrible (little to no flavor other than the rum). Salad came out AFTER our meal. Waitress did nothing to try and correct our negative experience.

Never disappointed! Do you want a nice meal with great staff and service? You can usually find the owners greeting guests and filling the restaurant with their smiles. Most nights there is enjoyable live music on the open deck flowing out to all the happy patrons.

Stopped in last week. We live in the area and we’re looking for a new place for lunch. We chose to eat out side on the patio overlooking the water. It was quite comfortable. One of us ordered fried clams which were outstanding. I ordered the gyro which was also very good. Service was friendly and fast. This is not a gourmet food destination but rather just good comfort food. Menu is extensive enough that you can please everyone. They also offer inside dining but for me it was a little cold and sterile, maybe because everyone was dining outside. We will definitely return. Happy hour starts at 3 and I think it goes till 7.

Limited menue but every meal has been quite good. Lovely setting at the marina and not as crowded as its neighbor.
