Friendly helpful service. The calamari sandwich was delicious. Casual outdoor afternoon dining was enjoyable under the umbrellas. Senior menu items are available during all meals, as is a selection of light fare at lunch. For breakfast, lunch or dinner....try Brad's

The grilled bbq shrimp and tri tip was very good, the fish fry was bland but the halibut was very good but a small portion. Family dinner for 7 they seated us quickly and the staff was very friendly.
