Stopped in here for dinner on the water this past Sunday and the food was pretty much spot on for flavor, texture and price. We didn't care for the stuffed sole but I think they may have been having an off night for that meal option. The scallops were deep fried and then paired with at Teriyaki sauce that is to die for! I will crave these scallops. The fried raviolis were perfect and the red sauce was nice and think and had a great tomato flavor, not too bland or sweet or spicy. The venue was packed but all of the staff was very friendly and even took a couple of pics for us. We chatted with a couple of the bartenders who also recommended some wine options to pair with our dinner course. Next time I hope we can stay longer and get the full sunset!

One of the worse dinning experiences that I ever had, ever! The insufferable wait just to have a waitress show up at the table paled in comparison to the amount of time just to get our drinks. Thank goodness we ordered our meals at the same time as our drinks or this VERY well could have turned into a 2 hour ordeal rather than the hour and a half that it did turn into after being seated. That being said the food was awful. I had the fish and chips which I have no idea how they could pass either off as appetizing. The Mrs. had the lobster mac n cheese which I did try and thought of wall paper paste tasted better. Food should never invoke that taste nor image. I read the reviews and was even recommended by the B&B to dine here so I have no idea what those folks ate because they didn’t have either of we ordered. I could go on because this is only half of this misadventure so I warn thee, sail far and away.

Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. The view is okay. The food not so good. My mother's lobster quesadilla was bare of lobster. The fish and chips were just okay. Probably will not be back.

Met up with friends for dinner and drinks. So nice to sit outside on the patio with a nice sea breeze. The waitress was very attentive but also knew that we were all catching up and let us be for long periods of time. Nice atmosphere too!

The glass bar inside the restaurant is gorgeous. The restaurant offers a variety of food so everyone should find something they like. The outside patio is so pleasant in warm weather. I recommend you give it a try.
