Large and varied menu and waterfront view. Service was excellent and a late dinner was promptly served. My scallops were cooked to perfection.

First time here. Service was good. All the food that was ordered was cooked right. The grilled Romano potatoes side dish is worth ordering. Seafood market is available also . Prices are average.
