My friend so excited to come here as he has been here before during spring break. We went there a week ago and it was kind of uneventful. I found the big open space to feel awkward. I think this would be a better stop...More

On the Island and feeling a little hungry so stopped by. Had a couple of drinks and some good wings. Sat out on the balcony and enjoyed the great view of the bay, birds and sunset. It was a nice stop and worth the money.More

Went there for lunch. The prime rib sandwich is to die for. Staff was pleasant. It's sits right on the water we were there on a cloudy day but would have had a great view otherwise.
