The husband and I went to lunch here on a week day and the weather was brutal. Regardless of the weather, we had a great view of the Columbia river. I can only imagine how nice it would be to lunch on the outside deck in the summer! Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. The only reason I didn't give... More

Not a flat, frozen bite. The chips are waffle cut, crispy & all was served hot. The cole slaw was even tasty... More

Love this place especially the fried okra of which I would of never eaten or ordered until my wife gave me a taste. Hamburgers are good and cooked how you like them. A lot of spicy food which is good.

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch on a cold rainy Sunday afternoon. It's was warm and cozy next to the gas fireplace. The decor is fun and eclectic beachy-Caribbean with a little pirate thrown in. I got the 2-piece halibut fish & chips, which was very good. Waffle fries and coleslaw came with it. My husband got...

The location on the water is stunning. Food is just fair - some was good, some was a disappointment for the price. Kids loved because of the boats as you are in the marina on the water-- but pricier for what you get food wise. But on a sunny day.... you can't help but to want to be there, looking... More

The decor is Carribbean Pirate in nature and all around fun. The food is Burgers and seafood but it is divine. The staff helps the keep the party alive with their helpful and playful... More

The waitress are very nice and the food is alright. The atmosphere is nice because you are eating right next to the river watching people enjoying their family going out on their boat

Have lunch and watch the boats go by. Wonderful hidden floating restaurant on the Columbia River located in Camas just south of Highway 14. Food is good and the drinks are good but I find it a little pricey. A bit tricky to find but you ding it you won't be disappointed. Watch your step down the ramp as it... More
