“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.”
