Other than the fabulous view this is a very plain, fried food, burger and dog, plastic basket restaurant. They oyster sandwich has no taste, the hamburgers cannot be ordered other than well done. Beer comes in a bottle and cannot be served in a glass....More

We had lunch and breakfast here and both were okay. This place is more of a bar than restaurant. They have a good band in the evening, which we did enjoy when we stopped back later.

Went there for " breakfast". Only a buffet is offered or a shrimp and grits option. We should have just left but we were starving. The buffet was powered eggs that were cold, corn beef hash out of a can, pretty pathetic. $9.99 per adult....More

This looked (& was ) a great place to sit & watch the sun go down over the harbour, on a hot summer evening. With dozens of megabucks big game fishing boats in for the evening and with live music coming from down stairs it...More
