First of all, they have valet parking, so there's no problem finding a spot. The atmosphere was pleasant, relaxed and friendly. Nice view of the marina, we went at night and at lunch, and it was pretty both times. The bread and soft butter they bring IMMEDIATELY, is delicious and keeps coming. We enjoyed the grilled octopus, it was very tender and tasty. The Black Cod and Halibut were also winners. We couldn't find anything interesting on the desert menu, which is why this gets only a 4 out of 5. The drinks were good, the wine list reasonable. Overall, a good experience.

This is a great place to meet some friends, family, take a date, or do a business lunch. The food was very good, very nice presentation, and the scenery is beautiful. It was busy, so the service was ok...We ordered the steamer pot of clams, which you could never go wrong with, oysters on a half shell, the lobster roll and fish tacos...and it was all GOOD! I didn't think it had a "wow" factor in taste, but it definitely hit the spot. Upon arrival, I would definitely have a few bucks ready for valet to avoid any frustration. Definitely a place to go back for a date night!

I have been coming to this restaurant for years....I mean 20+. They used to gave the senior citizen special prime rib back in the day. Then the place awhile back got acquired by Blue water Grill. It is very busy on the weekend. It is a very good lunch and dinner place. Brunch has not been their forte. When they hE a new chef, they change the menu. Sometimes they screw things up. If you don't like it. Give a six month break and go back again. They usually monitor the customer traffic and make the adjustment.

My daughters rehearsal dinner was there and it was such a perfect place overlooking the marina. I had the swordfish with mango salsa. My husband had the steak with mash. It was all cooked perfectly and well presented. I can highly recommend this place although it's not exactly budget friendly it is worth every penny. The staff were so attentive and friendly. I will defo be back to try the lobster.

This place was recommended to us by a local. The view was certainly beautiful. Unfortunately, I don't have anything good to say about the food. There were four in our group, and not one person was pleased with our meal. Two of the dishes came out wrong. The oysters rockerfeller had sand in them. I have to say, the service was impeccable. Great place for drinks at sunset.
