A friend & I had dinner on the upper deck after a long day at a conference. Waitress Katlyn was attentive & polite. Both of us enjoyed our entrees, but I was very pleased with my grilled redfish with pilaf & steamed veggies.

Staff were friendly and helpful, food was good and portions sizes were fine although I thought it was a little on the expensive side for lunch. Cocktails were very good and reasonably priced, making for a fun afternoon pit stop. Overall a solid 4/5 rating.
