Unfortunately, we had dinner on a dark and blustery night in November, so we could not appreciate the splendid view. The food was good and the service was excellent. For a very large restaurant, it was shockingly empty when we were there. Server was very...More

Beautiful setting and views, nice ambience. Food was fabulous. Definitely go for the lobster bisque. Drinks were a bit strong for my tastes but most people appreciate that. Our dinners were flavorful and well presented. We all had seafood and all our choices were cooked...More

Needed a quick dinner and while the restaurant was booked they do have an open seating in the bar area that was very nice. Steak was fantastic, cooked perfectly and melt in your mouth good. Little pricey but not outrageous.

We chose Shenanigans for my daughter's wedding. The ceremony and the reception were held in the upstairs banquet area. The event/catering staff was exceptional. We enjoyed the entire experience. Although the decor is a bit dated and worn, our decorations hid most of it. The...More
