Looking for a good seafood meal, we decided to try this out because of its location and views. Mediocre food and overpriced. We were attended to by Maria and she was fabulous. Won't be back

Good location, good service. Fair prices, good food. Generous portion, calamari appetizer. Dine indoors or on the porch overlooking the harbor.

I think they take reservations if you call- it might be party of 6 or more. It usually not a long wait.
