We called on Monday to book a table for Tuesday at 7:00pm and received a return call that we could be seated at 8:15pm (this while on hold hearing a 7:30 reservation being confirmed for a table of four). When we arrived we were told to wait or we could have a seat at the bar (seems they prefer seating... More

Nice restaurant. It is small, but the restaurant has fairly large windows so you shouldn't feel claustrophobic. The menu prices are within reason for an upper level restaurant. It is also a reasonably small menu for the size of the restaurant. Large menus require a large kitchen staff. Mostly seafood, craft beers, casual dress, and I just can't see bringing... More

You would never suspect this little gem, if you didn't here about it from someone else or read about it in tripadvisor. It was highly recommended to us, especially if you go on a Monday or Tuesday, they have BOGO on these days. This was our second time to eat diner there and had the Filet Mignon both times. Cooked...

Fell in love with this little gem on our last trip to EI. Stands well above the typical beach fare. Sustainable seafood that is fresh, flavorful and well prepared. Very nice atmosphere. Small, so definitely make a reservation, if you are impatient. We sat at the bar, which took a little while but was part of the fun, since we... More

I went here with high hopes and it ended on the average. They advertise gluten free and vegetarian options but it was lack luster. We were a party of 4 with celiac disease and 2 vegetarians. We had to order salads for dinner after seeing the very small menu options. The salads for a dinner salad were tiny. They were... More

Try the scallops and crab cakes, both are wonderful, a great wine selection. We hoped to see the ocean as we dined but this is indoor dining, no view. Great people serving us so we enjoyed it very much.

Wow, two meals for the price of one on Monday and Tuesday nights. Choices for this deal are limited to those on a chalk-board. Had a delicious and flavorful stuffed Filet. Would definitely go back for it again. The space is very limited and noisy, with tables close together. It is hidden away on a residential street, but well worth... More

We did not have reservations but found a seat at the bar in 10 minutes. My husband and I shared a bottle of white wine. The restaurant is small but it was packed. It was VERY clean and the service was great. Both of our entrees were delicious. We even had the dessert sampler, which we dont normally do. I... More

Although this is a very small place, and parking is a little limited, it is well worth the efforts to visit. From the unique salads, the great appetizers (different version of mac & cheese each day), the main entrees and the desserts, there was nothing but great tasting perfectly cooked food and friendly efficient service.
