  • Eat in the bar if you don't want to wait for a table.
  • Their Halibut Fish & Chips is out of this world- so much flakier and tender than Cod- Try the Crab Cake on Succotash pesto-Sauce- Hmm and what a View! We always get their artichoke dip to begin.
  • Key Lime pie...ya gotta have it. Oh and the view is nice too. :)
  • awesome view of the city .. good place to take your parents when they visit
  • The bbq smoked prawns are the best i have ever tasted
  • Great view, but don't expect much from the food. They served my group cold soup.
  • Your vehicles are not safe here. If anything is visible your windows WILL be broken and you WILL lose your stuff.
  • Bring your belongings with you. Two cars were broken into when I was there for dinner.
  • Cranberry Mojito !
  • The food is not as great after they changed the menu.
  • New management sucks, don't come here.
  • Best happy hour in town.
  • Great view. Prefer brunch over lunch/dinner. Get the french toast.
  • If you get the prime rib make it medium.
  • The views of hte bay and bridges from the restaurant bar are the perfect way to enjoy dinner and a Mount Gay Rum cocktail.
  • I loved the halibut cheeks off the specials menu. Also enjoyed the buttery jalapeo cornbread and the truffle-infused mashed potatoes. Plus, check out the sweet painting of Cal's Play. Go Bears!
  • The bloody marys are to die for!
  • The clam chowda is the very best! Expect to leave very best broke
  • Bread pudding
  • Scenic views are incredible. Well matched with the fantastic drinks and amazing dinner service. Great food nice menu a lot of choices. Something for everyone.
