We only stopped here to have drinks and desert which was very good and reasonably priced. Looked at the dinner menu and saw others being served.... Looks very good and also reasonably priced. We will make sure to eat there on our next visit!

Great seafood restaurant that sits right on the bay. Boaters can pull right up and go inside. They have a salad bar and outdoor dining available. Make sure you make a reservation for busy times or you will be turned away or forced to sit...More

If there was any alcohol it would have been white wine. I don't think any of the seafood menu items included pork/chicken/meat broth.
