Good food. A bit expensive.

$40 (before tip) for two appetizers and 2 drinks is expensive. Example: the parmigiana portabello mushroom was very tasty but the $14 price tag put a damper on it. Cost aside, we enjoyed our experience and the friendly service.

There was a bit of a wait to be seated, but nothing unreasonable. The waitress was prompt and attentive. The crab cakes were excellent, the best I've ever had. The portions were large, so we were able to take some of our food back to the motel. The decor was a nautical theme, very tastefully done. The only thing I... More

If you go before 6pm, there are several early bird specials that are very reasonably priced. It included coffee and dessert, you can't beat that! Portions are good, the restaurant and front deck are nautically decorated, staff is attentive. Everything tasted very good, great prime rib! Will go back every year on vacation. Kudos!

This was terrible from start to finish. I have never had my main course served before I got my soup. Everything was mediocre at best and the prices are ridiculous. Do yourself a favor and drive over to the Canadian side of the river for a decent meal.

Good food, generous portions and a nice atmosphere. They offered either inside or outside dining. The inside dining was a bit more upscale so I was surprised that our beverages were served in plastic cups (I prefer glass), but that's certainly not a deal-breaker for me.

Lot of confusion to sit us on arrival, took 3 people to figure it out. Lettuce looked like it had been on the counter for an hour, an salad was uninspired: lettuce, two cherry tomatoes, and dressing. Kinda sad :( The fish was on the other hand quite good, shrimp were nicely done, and crab cake was quite decent. Maybe... More

I've been here twice with my kids for lunch. The sandwiches are big and fresh with a big serving of fries on the side -- we ordered the BLT and a club sandwich. Service was friendly and the prices were reasonable. You can sit outside under the covered patio, or inside with A/C.

We ended up coming to this place for an early dinner. The food was decent. The prices were kind of up there, but not too overkill. Dinner menu was quite upscale in my book. There's probably a lot better places in Alex Bay but this one was fair enough.

Good food in the center of town. Nothing really apical. Some of the food we ordered was not hot. Friendly staff.
