    Awesome view of the SD Bay (and bottomless mimosas)!

    Great place for Sunday brunch with an awesome harbor view. Beer selection is small but they do a great job of getting a non-standard selection of beers from the best local breweries.

    Great view! You can sit outside and soak it all in. I recommend getting a drink to enjoy the view but if you want to eat, do yourself a favor & walk a block to Little Italy for the best Italian food.

    One of my go-to spots in Little Italy. Your corner bar top-notch service paired with an amazing view and tasty food and innovative drinks. Late night HH at 10pm! Try the duck fries!

    Nice view and they replaced meh drinks, but it didn't make up for the mediocre food or the bad service. Our waitress, Meesha, was condescending and forgetful. Don't think we'll be back.

    Worst costumer service ever! I don't know why everybody was so rude, we waited for forty mins for our drinks and they never arrived... After the wait we decided to leave

    Come here for the view of the harbor. Overpriced, mediocre food but reasonably priced drinks.

    Might be more expensive than it's worth. They deep fried gator when it totally should have been grilled. These guys are NOT "Top Chef" ready...

    Tip is. Don't go an support a business that is owned by an gashole. Worst boss, owner and respects no one. Good view but poor ownership

    The tuna nicoise is fantastic. Warning...it is a massive portion. No additional sides necessary.

    Do not expect any of the staff to be particularly friendly. Do not expect the bartender to pour your drink before all of the restaurant orders. Do not expect to be told about any happy hour specials.
