Both my husband and I ordered the Bisque, which was superb, and the seafood platter. The seafood was overdone. Couldn't taste the seafood for the too done breading.....too expensive for the disappointment. Other restaurants have much better food. Nice view

I ate there a couple times in my short trip. I first had ordered food to go and it was tasty! Especially the french fries. The staff is very nice and the view is a must see.
