Great live music! Nice food! Get the pork entrée! Lots of mosquitoes but great view for boat watching/docking and dancing.

The food is average quality and above average price but the Cuba band was great. We just came back from Havana so it was a pleasure to hear.

We enjoyed excellent food and service when we stopped in for lunch. Prices were reasonable and management went out of its way to explain food preparation, etc. We will go back.
