We had dinner inside only because it was starting to rain. I had a dozen raw oysters and my husband had the ribs, both were excellent. The service is prompt, nice wait staff and great prices. I would definitely recommend for couples or families.

Great seafood, prompt and courteous service, very convenient to the cruise ports, and you can watch the ships come and go from their channel-front deck. The crab cakes, while pricey, were killer, and everyone who had fish in our party raved how good it was.
