We went here with some work colleagues. The food is mostly fried which I don’t particularly like , but the few bits I had were ok. Service was quick and our waitress kept our drinks and food topped up all night

They had a great band playing the night we visited the atmosphere was electric and fun .

We will definitely go back , probably just for drinks more than food.

Thank TheCBs

Good food, awesome view. Nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy a meal with the water only 4 feet away. Service was slow but I was in no hurry.

Always a first stop after an early flight in from Canada. Open deck allows smoking and all of the food is great.
Lion fish is great.

My wife ordered a chicken caesar wrap and she said it was very good. I ordered fish and chips which struggled to reach average. Both the fish and the fries tasted like they spent considerable time under a warming lamp. Not good!
