Being my daughter's favorite restaurant made this the requisite venue. Service was timely and attentive. Portion were price appropriate. The menu features many seafood offerings as well as beef and pork. A large ala Carter options allows you to build your meal to suit your desires. Salads were extra whether your choice was ala carte or entree meal.

We went on a Wednesday night without reservations and were surprised at how busy the restaurant was. We were seated in the bar lounge area which was fine. Our waitress was pleasant and efficient. The haddock and the salmon were both cooked perfectly and came with tasty side vegetables. Perhaps a bit pricey but we were more than satisfied.

The overall meal was good, but service was not what we would have expected. We got there late for lunch; maybe 2:45. Had a nice window seat. Service was very slow.

Off the beaten track but on the Royal River with a charming location by a yacht broker. Superb décor inside and outdoor space as well. We ate at the bar where the bar staff were truly awesome, hospitable, knowledgeable. Lobster stew good not great, as we are having our own lobster stew treasure hunt going on. Good cocktails and again... More

I originally had a reservation at a different restaurant nearby for brunch but got a phone call when we were about to leave that they couldn't open for the day because of a leak! So I looked online for a place close and this popped up and it did not disappoint! Let me start off by saying the town of... More

Right on the river, I stopped in for lunch. The chef is not heavy-handed with delightfully lightly battered fish in my fish and chips. The crab cakes were also light and airy. The fries were a bit heavy. The cole slaw was tasty and also delicate. I would visit again. A lovely local restaurant.

This place is not easy to find but the food makes it worth the effort. The Sea Salt and Vinegar Calamari Appetizer I had for my lunch was excellent and a good size serving for one person meal or appetizer for 4. Service was also excellent - our waitress was attentive and very helpful with the menu. The restaurant is... More

It took us a while to discover this jewel but now that we have, it's one of our very favorite spots. With a wonderfully tucked away location on the water and a lovely interior design, the restaurant really is a delight. The bar is a comfortable area with numerous seating choices. The drinks are wonderful... try the Margarita Mule! Their... More
