My husband and I stopped in over Spring Break and sat in the Upper Deck. The view was great as well as the atmosphere and entertainment from a two man band. Upon recommendation we ordered the pizza which was awesome. Great place, great food and great service!!

My wife and I went here for some drinks and food. We sat at the bar. Josh the bartender gave us great service. The food was very good. The view out on the bay is beautiful also. The happy hour prices were also very good. We enjoyed listening to the guitar player there also.

Thank you for the review. Happy Hour is a great time in the upper deck, there is live music 7 nights a week and also lunch on the weekends. The scenery is quite a bonus and we are happy to know you got to share it with somebody special. We are looking forward to your next visit.
