Get the booth right by the window--we had the best dinner looking out to a great sunset--with perfect service. Good wine list. Excelent Filet Mignon and Caeser Salad And pretty convenient to boat there and have a more casual meal outside.

great location with validated parking and super view. We both had the salad Nicoise and it comes nicely presented with a nice size piece of albacore tuna.

Great view, wonderful wine list, delicious food and excellent and accommodating service. Steaks were excellent but Caesar salad was simply good. Fish special was also great. We will definitely be back if we have the opportunity.

The view is top notch. The specials are delicious. I love the oyster selection and the salads are all amazing, especially the beet salad. The bread is baked fresh everyday and is included with your meal.
