Nice Lunch Spot on the Water. Nautical decor and great food. Especially enjoyed the Dungeness Crab Cakes and the blackened King Salmon.

Great location with friendly atmosphere. Service was wonderful and our server was very attentive. Really enjoyed the appetizers, especially the calamari. Main dishes were good but not spectacular.

What a wonderful way to unwind at the end of the day! The patio seating was wonderful, the staff was charming, and the food delicious. It's hard to beat this while watching the sun go down and enjoying a delicious meal.

Great seafood dinner. Would highly recommend the blackened salmon and the coconut crusted prongs. They were one of the few restaurants open on Sunday evening after we got back from a 3 day hike. We were so happy they were open.
