Review by Thomas G. on Google

A really great place to eat! Staff here is really friendly and prices are reasonable. Some spots do have a decent view of the water. Some of the burgers here are pretty big, but are really good. Unless you are really hungry, you might not be able to finish it. Still would recommend this place.

Review by Ken B.

Super delicious food. The impossible burger was amazing. The skinny fries are fabulous. They also make some great cocktails. The bar tender was spot on.

Review by CM P. on Yelp

Great lunch special included half sandwich, soup and a great salad. Perfect! They offered a full menu with lots of options. Near the water, indoor & outside seating. Nice harbor view.
