Editorial Review

Before a devastating fire in 2007, kayakers returning from the nature wonderland in Piscataway Creek felt as comfortable here as fishermen and dry-dock tinkerers.

But then tablecloths, plush chairs and poshly dressed servers wearing vests arrived as the rebuilt waterside dining spot went upscale. Diners in casual boater attire looked out of place.

Recent remodeling toned down the waterside dining room a bit, but real informality is found outside at the umbrella-topped tables and on the covered deck with rail and bar seating.

The rear dining room retains its sophisticated, romantic atmosphere.Notable: Grand reopening celebration is June 30.
