Good food and view

We enjoyed breakfast here a couple of mornings. The food was good, and we enjoyed a wonderful view of the bay while waiting for our food.

Our group of 8 stopped in for drinks and appetizers. We sat outside and although it was a tad cool, the atmosphere was excellent. The service was exceptional, the appetizers excellent, and the drinks hit the spot.

Went for early evening supper. Prompt service, but found the menu rather confusing as the entrees came with salad so we need not have ordered another. Feel this could have been explained by our waiter, as we were visiting from England and and did not know "how things worked". Delicious meal, but for us, portions way too large! (and we... More

Great food with a great view. A little pricey, but to be expected because of the tourists. Our wait to be seated wasn't long and our service was decent, but I have had friendlier help before. I might go there again.

During this time, the people next to us got their food and the disappointing comments started to come out of their mouths. Dry. tasteless, over cooked.... and such. That was a yellow flag for us so we decided to... More

This area, gift shop, restaurant, store is an all in one facility. Restaurant ok, store ok, but the gift shop is set up with the expectation that they will never see you again passing through. I spent $70. On a jacket that fell apart immediately. I called the gift shop where they said call back for manager. I did. Manager... More

Went here on a very busy Friday night when they were having a crab feed. As packed as it was it didn't take long to get a table and the bar was a nice place to wait and enjoy the view and lively atmosphere. The waitress was horrible and seemed very uninterested in taking our order so we served ourselves... More

While there were lots of choices on the menu, most were all the old standards, with an emphasis on fried foods, and nothing really new to try. The portions were good but the service was only average as we had to ask for silverware after some was taken away with our salad and remind them a couple of times to... More
