    Fun outdoor spot with live music on the roof! Tuna dip with crackers and mozzarella sticks (balls) were a yummy snack. Togo drinks that you can take on a walk on the pier

    The food sucks. Hopefully, they will hire a chef and get a better menu.

    Bleh. Food is very average and like all seafood $$$.You would probably get the same quality food at Joe's Crabshack or some other chain. It is nice that the place is open air and on the water though..

    Want to pay outrageously for poor quality good? This is your place! Got the Run of the Kitchen (4-5 kinds of fried seafood), and the best thing on my plate was French fries.

    The woo woo drink was great. Pretty cool that you get a free cup but I'm glad I didn't have to pay extra for it, it might not last long "it's not clink clink hard" more like 2 solo cups stacked.
