The Wharf is located behind the Marathon gas station. We ordered the Nautical Nachos ($10.99) & Southwest burger w/ Sweet potato fries ($10.49). I would highly recommend the burger and fries, but there is no need to purchase the nachos. The nachos are plentiful, but...More

Oh the wharf! One of my absolute favorite hole in the wall bars/restaurants! It's hidden behind the gas station and looks sketchy on the outside with bars on the windows but it's all part of its environment. The inside is cute with fantastic cheap bar...More

This is a regular lunch spot following tennis or golf. Excellent burgers and Reubens, salads good too, but my favorites are the sandwiches. The new owners have retained the same menu; as good as ever
