    The grilled shrimp are delicious! Get here early to get a seat out by the water and then relax, listen to the band and enjoy the view with a refreshing punch bucket!

    I ordered their Fish Roo-Ben but I ended up with their Kanga Roo-Ben which is beef. It's still good. I ordered the rice as side coz I'm Filipino. 😆

    Service seems to be a hit or miss. Margarita tonight was awful & could not finish. Tasted like water & alcohol. Wahoo fish & chips special was great but they had a different celery coleslaw. Not a fan

    Crappy service. Food was good, view was nice. But "Kyle T" was horrible. Rude and unhelpful, constantly mumbling under his breath, such as "oh great, HERE we go..." when we asked for split checks.

    The DJ sucks. I don't recommend this place after 11. The bands are good, but the DJ comes on at 11 and drives everyone out.

    This place is a hole in the wall with the best view of the sunset and the bridge. The food looks ok but wow on the views.
