We wanted something lite but still filling. The meal was just what we wanted. A bit of a wait but well worth it. Prices were good and the food very good.

It is right across the street from the marina. Food was very good. It was a little cool that day. They had these plastic window coverings. So they lowered them so it wouldn't be so breezy.
