This is THE restaurant with the views in town. Seafood is really good here and their specialty. The upstairs bar has a deck that's wonderful to sit out on and eat during good weather with spectacular views of the Marina, Sound and Islands. This is the place to romance your special someone too.

This place has the BEST brunches on the weekends! You will never see a finer brunch buffet; Its a seafood extravaganza with the Ham and Roast beef singing chorus, and unique savory salads, and main dishes. This also has exceptional views in Redondo instead of downtown so your views are unobstructed of the Sound from here.

Excellent wood fires thin crusted pizza and to die for Chicken Marsala (this really is the only thing I ever order) are some of the delicious dishes on the menu. Wine and dine then walk to the marina to walk it off.
