This is advertised as waterfront. It's not. The property the restaurant is on is waterfront, but the restaurant is not. We did not stay, we headed down the road. Disappointing.

We ate here on our first night as we were tired and it was conveniently on site. It was good... Nothing fancy but we left satisfied. We had burgers and fish & chips and shared a huge slice of cheesecake.
