We have been here before. Food and service were very good. No elevator. Long ramp to access restaurant. Off the beaten track at end of strip of land.

My family and my sister's family wanted great seafood at good prices so we looked on trip advisor and found this out of the way gem. Delicious food, great prices, wonderful atmosphere, and beautiful views. Will be going again!

Inconsistent results. Three errors on our bill. Brought wrong dish out - not what we ordered, delaying dinner. Food was of variable quality across the table. Enjoyed the swordfish. Vegetables were properly cooked.

Parking required 3 passes at 6pm. Calamari appetizer was just ok. Crab cakes were amazing. The southern fries seafood platter was bland. The vegetables on both entrees were flavorless. Service was barely adequate.More
