Overpriced and noisy. We were given a coupon to come back and order a minimum and get free drink. But the free drinks would cost the same as the minimum. I like to stick with water and lemon and lime.

Food not very good here! A complete waste of money here, modest pricing low quality food, service is also marginal.

We have gone here quite a few times. I recommend the Chicken Bibb salad or the Mermaid pasta. They are a little pricier but worth it.

Great atmosphere, across the street from Lake St. Clair. Extensive menu. Great seafood dishes and also great burgers. The menu offers variety for any person and a nice kids menu.

Went in there with friends. Hadn't been there in a while. We all ordered fish of some kind. It was really good and the service was good too. A little island feel to the place. Very popular along the Nautical Mile

While I cannot say anything bad about this place, it did not stick out in my mind as the best place to eat either. Service was good, food was average, outdoor seating rather tight but great location

What a disappointment. There was everything you could imagine under the sun, salads, fruit, desserts galore, meats abound, but everything was just bland and boring and dry and overcooked or hard. Nothing made me go back for seconds or even take a second bite. What an utter waste of time and money. I left platefuls of food uneaten, which I... More
