We were disappointed attending Sunday Brunch. We very much liked the breakfast choices- omelets, eggs, crepes, waffles. Also create your own pasta was good. The items to make a custom salad were good too. The cut fruit choices were limited- cantaloupe, melon, and pineapple. They used to have different kinds of berries. Hot lunch items choices were ok - again... More

Good outdoor option for dining with nice band. Would recommend the lobster roll. The Sunday brunch is also great.

My wife and I wanted to have a light early dinner and see the water. She had a drink that the bartender made well. Then we ordered two burgers, bowl of clam chowder, and a side salad. The chowder came and was excellent. Then came the salad after a twenty minute wait and it was okay. The two burgers finally... More

From the time we walked in and couldn't get a table I was suspect. Went to the bar and both staff disappeared. Let me explain that we were both dressed appropriately for this upscale place and just wanted to relax and catch up over a dinner by the water. Well, the restaurant host showed us a great table and all... More

Great location but that's the only positive comment I can say about our recent dinner. The service has really gone down hill and the food was just okay. When ordering our wine the waiter suggested we drink the bottle of white quickly since there were no more wine chillers available. It took 25 minutes to get a cold basket of... More

We ate here for dinner recently and were disappointed with the prices and the quality of the food. $9 for a glass of wine or a cocktail; average price of dinner was $30. Salads are not included in the price. Dinner servings were less than adequate. The shrimp dinner included only four large shrimp, along with some lemony rice that... More

Although the location is beautiful, I wouldn't go there again to have lunch or dinner. The food, although presented nicely, is just not good; overcooked, poor quality food. The service is also poor with the hostess being so rude, we almost left before we dined. Drinks are way overpriced, as is the food. Much better places to dine on the... More

We stopped here after a long day at a summer festival in another town. We ate on the outdoor patio. The restaurant affords views of Long Island Sound. It is a pleasant way to while away a few hours. We tried clam strips with fries and Cesar Salad with shrimp. Everyone loved the food, portion and quality. The waitstaff is... More
