Stopped for drinks and appetizers and the view. Close to airport and very relaxing atmosphere with great appetizers and full bar. Service was perfect and friendly. Reasonable priced with happy hour in the bar area.

Stayed at the Bay Landing Hotel and went here for dinner/drinks. Exactly what I was looking for. Fast service and a great menu as well!
