Went for dinner with my husband. Appiters and Drinks we're fantastic. Seafood pasta and Cajun chicken pasta was uneatable. Had it sent back. Paid the bill and went home.

I know it's a big statement but we've tried mai tais wherever we can find them and always come back to the same conclusion that W&S has the best.

Lunch on a Saturday, steak and seafood restaurant on waters edge. Friendly efficient wait staff, good quality food, amazing harbour view. Looked busy in the evenings. Cookie and ice cream dessert is absolutely huge, feeds two easily. Had both steak and seafood both very nice.

Spectacular setting watching the boats go out and come back to harbor. Prices reflective of this high rent location. Service is friendly and brisk but the food is the last reason to dine here. Uninspired and ordinary.

We went to dinner at the Wind & Sea and tried their spinach salad and their fish and chips. While the salad was great, the fish and chips weren't anything to write home about. We then went back the next day, sat out on the...More

Sorry such a late answer but here goes anyway. Yes it can get loud inside and out. But that will depend on what time you go also. It's a big restaurant so it there's a lot of folks inside and everyone is talking. If your... More
