Good food. Fun place and nice views. You can sit dockside or inside. There are umbrellas to cover tables as well. Sitting at the outside bar for a few drinks is nice too.

I had the bluewater mix platter which was grilled salmon, mahi and shrimp served with rice and beans and a vegetable. It was delicious and fresh. It was also nice to watch the boats drive by while eating.
