The Captain’s Quarters is a great venue for your next group outing whether personal or professional, just make sure you call ahead to book a reservation.

The Lighthouse Restaurant & Patio is a delicious alternative to the Captain’s Quarters. Located just steps away from the main building, this concession style restaurant offers nightly specials and fresh home cooked meals.
