    Hard to imagine a better spot for a happy hour. The menu is standard modern fish shack. A huge place. The service gets really sluggish when they get busy.

    Service is slooooow, but the atmosphere more than makes up for it. The bar is awesome, and the patio is a must during summer. Cocktails are wonderful and food is good.

    The food is bland, nothing special, but the view makes an afternoon visit worth your wild.

    Go here for the environment. Whether it's inside or on the dock. The food is pricey. The service and views of the lake make up for it.

    The ceviche and clam starters were delicious, oysters are great here, and the halibut entree was excellent. Love the lake view balcony in back, and the oyster stout is a plus here too.

    Beautiful outdoor sitting area when the day is nice and sunny. The place is awesome but happy hour feels like regular prices at another less fancy place. Overall great spot just be prepared to spend.
