WE have gone several times and never been disappointed in the food. The wait can be bit long during the dinner rush but it is worth the wait.

Very casual. In fact there is a dock to park your boat in the summer. ! I would say dressy casual if you have dinner plans. No shoes, no shirt , no service!😀
