Phone Ahead - 256-2628 (BOAT)

Although we do not accept reservations, we do offer a convenient phone ahead seating policy that allows you to be placed on our waiting list by telephone, prior to arriving.

Give us a call on the day you wish to join us and your party will be added to our phone ahead seating list.

Coincide your arrival with your quoted time and notify the host once your whole party has arrived. You will then be given an approximate wait period, if any, for a table.

Phone ahead may not eliminate your wait, however if there is any wait it will certainly reduce it!

Due to the popularity of "Phone Ahead Seating," call early to select your desired time. We begin taking names:
3 PM daily
...256-BOAT (2628)

Why no reservations?

We have found through years of experience that our "Phone Ahead Seating" policy best suits you, our guest, because:
- We insist that our guests dine at their leisure, not at a pace determined by the time of the next reservation.
- We are never "booked." This allows our guests to make "last minute"" plans even on weekend and holidays. We always have available dining on the day you would like to come in.

Although calling ahead is highly recommended, walk-ins are always welcome!
