Was here with a large group and they did a super job. Everyone at our table loved their food. We had fish and chips and cioppino (made with linguine noodles yum!). Servers were pleasant and bar tender attentive.

Well, this wasn't what we were expecting. It's a very small, fisherman style restaurant. There is not much parking and a little walk down the Wharf. The day we went they only had 1 server so the service was slow - not her fault since...More
