My colleague and I had lunch at this place last Thursday. The setting is really pretty, overlooking the water and service is very good. I ordered the salmon and crab linguine which looked fantastic and tasted as good as it looked. My colleague had the pulled pork sandwich and was just as impressed. This was a rather expensive lunch but... More

The rooms we big, clean and comfortable. I stayed in a ocean view and was completely worth the extra money. The bar was... More

We stopped at The Salty Dog for a quick lunch. Upon first glance it didn't really look like the kind of place I'd choose but inside it was quite pleasant. All four of us chose the seafood chowder which was delicious, if a little creamy. Service was prompt.

Just stayed the one night but had a lovely stay and very enjoyable dinner. The woman at reception, Barbara, went above and beyond to make our stay a pleasant one! Will definitely be back next time we're looking for a relaxing evening without kids....
