Q-Tips say: Good food, good service and drinks are ok but you are not really on the waterfront. They are located across the street from the water and there are trees/bushes obstructing the view (unless you are very tall). You can walk the pier across the street after dinner and really enjoy the view. A little higher priced than usual for such a restaurant, must have been our drinks.
We shared the clams in a creamy garlic sauce – which was good. Mrs. Q had the “crab cake sandwich” which was excellent – all crab meat, no fillers. The Mr. had the “blackened Grouper sandwich” which was also excellent. So, don’t go for the view, go for the food and a nice ambiance of sitting outside on a beautiful day then take a walk across the street to really enjoy the view and relax.
