A nice quite location a bit off the tourist route, and on the water! Great service. Friendly staff. Tasty food from their small portions menu section. Perfect for a lite dinner or snack. Beers were well balanced and perfect after a day of traveling.

A lot of craft beers to try if that's your thing. But they also have a small selection of ciders. Oh and the flatbread pizza was delicious!
