AWFUL SERVICE - I live at the oceanfront so I am use to bad service but this tops the cake of worst dinning experience ever. I should have know when it started out with me asking about happy hour, the waitress replied that it went until 7 but she would not have the time to put the order in prior to 7 so she could not give me happy hour prices. Even tho I had been waiting over 15 minutes for her to even come to our table and it was not even 7:00. We ordered a beer but she forgot to bring it, reminded her, still no beer. Asked for water because our cups were empty (Never got beer) even that took 20 minutes. I had to eat my food with nothing to drink. All I want to do at this point is leave. Can't get the waitress so I go to the bar to try to get change so we can just leave the money on the table, Bartender says he can not exchange my 10 dollar bill for a 5 and 5 ones. REALLY! I had to get my own to go box. While the view was great, the food (when we finally got it) was good, the service was beyond horrible!
Love this place! The view is beautiful and the mini pitchers they serve mimosas in are so cute! I love their nachos and all the appetizers.
It is also really interesting that they are connected to essentially a fish market. It add to the whole experience! Great place for brunch or lunch!
The food was really good. We had some delicious nachos and a variety of tasty tacos. The staff was friendly and attentive. The location on the water was really nice too. The reason for 3 stars was the dog friendly rule. We own 3 dogs and they're well behaved and well cared for animals. Unfortunately, the dog sitting directly behind me was not. It was growling and barking for much of our meal which was annoying. What was far worse is that it was scratching itself and literally sending fleas flying onto me which were biting me the whole meal. Yes, this is the fault of the owners but I also hold the establishment responsible for allowing it. We'll come back some other time and hopefully have a better experience.
This use to be one of my favorite places along the inlet. The service at the bar poor. It takes too long to order drinks and get them. If you are not ordering beer the odds of your drink being correct is 50%. They need more than one bartender.
Quick stop, for a quick bite and i was not disappointed. Beer was good (local IPA). Wait staff was helpful and attentive. Everything came out quick... Everything came out tasty. Definitely recommend. Don't expect 5 star decor.
