Great spot for a sunny day lunch by the water. Fish tacos were yummy. They have a nice bar for a smaller restaurant.

Nice small restaurant with a closeup view of the river and boatyard. Seems to be a local favorite based upon the old timers at the bar. Small parking area, but apparently adequate. Early dinner, so not crowded, but host seated us right next to the...More
