About
Join us for a wonderful experience over the water in either "The Aquarium" or on "The Dock". Inside we serve up-market dishes situated in a cozy dining area with great views. Outside we have a big lounge area for you to relax and enjoy you day - completely casual and informal. All our locations can be booked for events as well and we try to cater for every wish that might arise.

Whether it was a casual brunch in the Dock side, or a more formal dinner in the Aquarium side, we found Zane Grey's food very good, and the service delightful. Also recommend the Zane Grey's Ale.
