WOW - that was THE worst tbone I've ever had. Gristle, some meat & then more gristle (google gristle peeps), vegies were uncooked strips of carrot & cucumber. Pepper sauce lacked pepper. At $28.00 - no where near good enough. Granted the beer was relatively cheap but i think we're relying heavily on the view & summer crowds here. Eat... More

Not sure if these guys put prices up during holiday season but based on the other reviews of "affordable", I disagree based on size of meals vs cost.

Great Food, Friendly staff and a wow factor of a view. This place sits at the top part of town with great views over the water onto the break wall. A must to visit.

We dropped in here for a drink in the afternoon. It had a warm friendly atmosphere with a million dollar view. We comfortably sat sipped on our drinks and just enjoyed the scenery.

What a marvelous setting. Wonderful place to enjoy a drink with a sensational view. But the meals are grossly overpriced for what they are...Their POB, Plain Old Hamburger comes in at a hefty $15 and believe me, it is just what it says it is..very plain....Very expensive Oysters Kilpatrick served with a plastic fork..Asked the cook about the beef curry...curtly...
