A great view of the Sarnia Bay. Whether you are spending the day out on the water, taking in a pleasant walk along the water ship watching or getting together with friends this is a great little restaurant. Delicious menu options, friendly wait staff and a nice environment for a meal with a nice breeze on their patio.

Food here is superb, don't miss out! I was there with 10 other people including a vegetarian and not a single complaint among us, you can't go wrong. The food took a little while but to come out but understandable given the quality and our party size.Service was great as well.
