Great drinks and good service. However a bit expensive but what do you expect in the Marina. It's also not that crowded usually so you can actually have a conversation without shouting for the most part. A good chill weekend lounge spot.

I couldn't believe how bad the service was and there were only a hand full of customers. It got way worse from there. My wife got a salad that was BROWN and smelled like garbage. When we tried to return it, the manager told us that it

Stop by for drinks and dinner at Beechwood Restaurant. The menu is delightful and the service is good. The prices are reasonable but just like anything in Venice, there will be long waits on the weekends when the tourists pound the pavement.

I really love going here for either drinks or dinner. The food is delicious and completely seperate from the bar area so you can enjoy a nice dinner on one side and then party at the bar on the other side. Reasonably priced and valet parking in the front.
