It's fine if you're expecting a low quality Denny's. I've had pork chops, burgers, omelettes, fried eggs, and salads from traveling here on multiple trips- and they've all been disappointing. It's convenient if you're staying at the Cavalier, but if you have the time, drive somewhere else.

Fast and friendly service, delicious food, great views of the ocean. It was connected to the hotel so we just walked to it for dinner and breakfast. Really good hot chocolate on a cold morning.

We received breakfast vouchers from out hotel, so thought we'd try it out. The food was good, location was super convenient and our server was very sweet. Would definitely go back.

I had hopes that the meal would be ok given the reviews but it wasn't. Sorry that we ate here and didn't drive the 6 or so miles to the nearby town.

This place is convenient to the hotel and the food was ok but service pretty slow. There might be better alternatives in the area because if you want to get in and out quickly not the place to go.

The first was fish and chips and clam strips and... More

As we were staying in the Hotel, this was the natural choice. We had been advised on check in to make a reservation, and did. (otherwise may have been a long wait). Food was tasty, fresh and service excellent. Prices very reasonable. Overall, a very pleasant meal.

We had a great dinner here. Menu has many different selections, although at this point in our trip, we were hungry for a hamburger, which was very good. We enjoyed a great cocktail. We had a great waitress and our service was excellent. It did get crowded with a wait, so we were glad we went early.
