Wonderful food, classy atmosphere. Didn't see any children under 15 while there, which was nice to see. If you're looking for a nice dinner with your honey, it's a great spot. Loved it!!

Had a choice of the food as baked vs fried, the seafood platter has plenty on it to fill you up. The baked scallops were excellent. A little pricier than other spots but worth it

A beautiful view, lobster roll the way it should be done (light mayo no celery), and an amazing view. They do have a kids menu and my son was able to find a few things he liked. Great service, great food, and an excellent view!

We very much enjoyed the upper deck.Great view of the river and the Marina. Service was great and the food was exceptional. Prices may be a bit high but worth it. We will be going back soon.
