The view here is amazing which is why we decided to try it now that there are new owners. Problem is that they are charging a ridiculous amount for very ordinary wine at $35 a bottle for a Mark West Pinot Noir. I could buy that for under $10 in a local supermarket. Quite a rip off! Food?

While the accommodations right next door were less than to be desired (very roachy), the ale house served up fantastic food at great prices. The waitstaff was fast and friendly. I would definitely go back. And the scenery was awesome. Dolphin literally skying out of the water as they chased down their food. What a show!

We went there on recommendation of a friend. Menu had a lot of options. Drinks were very good, food was good and fair portions. Will definitely go there again. Really nice location overlooking the water.

We stayed at Port Marina hotel which was such a pleasure! As for the restaurant attached to it... No way! It is no longer an ale house, but it's now called Margarita Breeze. Staff was friendly, food was awful. The Greek salad was basically soggy lettuce leaves drenched in an oil mixture that they call their "house dressing" I ordered... More

First,they offer a VERY good $4.00 margarita in addition to some of the best salmon i've had. Add to this being on an open bay with boats,fish and dolphins--what could be better!- my friends really enjoy their ribs,but on the water--i want fish!
