We stopped here on a hot day to enjoy a few drinks. The drinks were tasty, the staff was friendly and the air conditioning kept us good and cool!

We loved the view and the food. The seafood was wonderful and the service was very nice. Prices were reasonable and public parking was also close at hand.
