For about three years now we’ve been promised a “coming soon” restaurant in our marina. Last week the restaurant was finally open. A sort of party on the bottom, business on top place that’s made to cater to both us boating riff raff, and people who come in dressed to the nines in formal clothing.
After a long day of sailing Saturday, us women folk decided that we had no interest in cooking or cleaning and demanded to try out the new restaurant. After tying up the boats and one slight accident that involved someone getting very wet and changing into jammies, we were off.
Half of us went over by dink and the first thing that we noticed is that there is no place at all for visiting boats — not even a little dinghy dock. There are no cleats on the main bulkhead. We ended up tying off to a ladder at the end of the fairway and climbing up.
The restaurant has a very high class vibe right when you first walk in. The lower level has a nice looking bar on one side and white linen tables on the other. The upstairs has more tables. Both levels have great patio seating. The upstairs patio has couches and coffee tables for a more lounge feel.
Even though the restaurant was fully booked they made room for our party of eight scraggly sailors. From the beginning the service was excellent. Our waiter informed us that in order to give the chefs and staff some practice all of the food for the night would be on the house. He gave us all a menu of 4 courses, with two choices for each course.
Some of the menu options were: Filet Minon, Lobster tail, Ahi Tuni, Oysters, Lobster Bisque, Lemon Triffle, Key Lime Pie. Absolutely everything was amazing. The side salads were big enough to be a meal.
We decided to pay back the generosity of the restaurant by ordering extra drinks. The wine selection was great, and it came with a reall cool back-lit wine menu.
All in all the evening was amazing. The atmosphere of the place is just what you look for, and the food and service was great. It was a night we will definitely remember for a long long time.
Thank you to Maverick Remodeling and Construction for some of the photos.

Nice! “Party in the bottom nice up top”. I love it. 😄
We went last night. It was busy, food good, service terrific, but not free – $115 with tip.
