AAA Inspector Notes
Sticking true to its name, this upscale yet casual eatery is situated on the water amid world-class boats. Completely revamped in 2015, this restaurant is now one of the top dining destinations in the city. The dining room motif offers an obvious hint at a nautical theme with all seats affording patrons views of the water and amazing yachts. The menu favors seafood cuisine with a “hook to table” approach, which means that the food doesn't get much fresher unless you catch it yourself. Popular dishes include a variety of raw bar items, Scottish salmon, paella, grouper piccata, mahi-mahi tacos and yellowtail snapper. There are also steaks, chicken dishes, burgers, salads and sandwiches available. However, this inspector definitely recommends a seafood dish. There is even an outdoor patio section along the water, which is the ideal place to dine when the weather is just right.
