“There is a longstanding restaurant in the front with excellent views, especially at sunset. I go there for the patio bar in the back. You will find boater's pulled up to enjoy the view and the music with a cocktail. They have some decent food options for a snack. They are pricey for what they are but do the trick. After all, you're there for the view.”

There are classic items and ones that are completely original and unique. Make sure you try the wings! There are 16 sauces for you to choose from both Original Breaded, or Naked. The Chicken or the Egg has become know locally and Nationally for these wings. Also, the entire menu is available 24 hours a day (in season).”
