Their popular full bar cocktail lounge offers a fine list of wines and domestic and imported microbrews. Yachtsmen and local residents have been dining at this nautical bayfront restaurant for more than 66 years. Come for fresh seafood, purchased directly from local fishermen, and sizzling steaks. Equal to the food is their million-dollar view of America’s Cup Harbor.

Come early and enjoy the sunset on the patio overlooking the sparkling yacht marina. For the best seating indoors, ask for table 5. The fresh charbroiled fish selections are a house specialty, but don’t overlook the thick, juicy filet mignon or the top sirloin pepper steak. Seafood lovers will undoubtedly rave about the delicious macadamia nut halibut. A superb appetizer not to miss is crab-stuffed mushroom caps smothered in a savory Newburg sauce. Also enjoyable is the Caesar salad topped with shrimp. Ask about the daily specials, which may be deep-fried coconut shrimp or Maryland crabcakes.
