Don't call this Fremont bar another nautical-themed watering hole. Vodka, rum, and aquavit-based cocktails sell the motif, along with a selection of hefty beers and a Wednesday wine-by-the-bottle happy hour. The seafood-focused menu offers elevated sailor grub, composed and plated with fine dining precision at bar snack prices.
