Large and delicious fish tacos! We tried to fish from the pier, but it was so packed that it was uncomfortable. I would recommend this spot for a quick snack, a few drinks and to purchase live bait.

The staff are the best. They help you with everything. Nice & quiet during the week, when school is in. Can be very busy on weekends, but a descent family oriented place.
