The outdoor bar and grill are located in a great area near the marina and where the ships come into the downtown area. Great view of the city and shore together. Secondly, this bar's happy hour was second to none. Absolutely loved the drink selection and how reasonably priced it was. The food was fantastic, definitely try the stone crabs if you've never!" - PaulBunyanTraveler, TripAdvisor.
