HarborWalk Village's Award-Winning Restaurant

Crab Island Cantina is a sprawling place, with two bars—one outside, one inside—and indoor and outdoor dining tables. The weather was fair, so we ate outside, in a large courtyard shielded from weather by drapes without losing the view. Our server brought us menus, chips and salsa, and left us to study...

PBR... Really?!?

It’s easy to kick back at Miller’s and throw down a couple cold ones at the bar, or take in a game—even the biggie on Feb. 2—on one of its many TV’s. And we do mean many. We’re sure we counted at least two or three dozen— they’re everywhere. Likewise, seating, both inside and out, is more than ample, easily accommodating parties of up to six or more...
