Great place to go for a great meal and a beautiful setting. Large portions make it easy to share a meal. The Bisque & Tiramisu are fantastic.

Went here with 8 people and we were almost alone. After being served dinner I understood why. Food was lackluster and the service was equally poor.

Our wedding photographer recommended the Old Man & the Sea Restaurant. We went for a sunset dinner. From the moment we walked through the door this was an experience. It wasn't what we were expecting but it ended up being one of the most amazing, unforgettable and romantic dinners we have ever had. Keep an open mind, it is a... More

I've been meaning to do this & finally got to it. We went for our 25th anniversary. We were seating at a... More

Last time we ventured down to see the place there were indications that it had closed. Our understanding is that the place can still be rented for private affairs - we would not recommend doing so.

Last night we went for a family diner as a stay-cation kind of vibe and even though we had reservations we came to a closed restaurant. WE asked the neighboring Flying Fishbone and the security there told us that the restaurant has closed it' doors and doesn't exist anymore. There is nothing of that mentioned on the website and we...

Not being much of a fish person I choose it anyway was pleasantly surprised by how well the fish tasted and was cooked perfectly the prices a bit on the upper side... More
