They also have good selections of seafood, hot food and desserts. I would definitely give it a try. :) The staffs were pretty attentive and friendly. The view is nice... More

Had dinner last night in the main dining room. View is spectacular! That's where it ends. Food was bland and unimaginative. My tenderloin was tough and accompanied sides stone cold. One exception was the New England clam chowder, which was thick and creamy. Server was very professional, efficient and saved the evening by taking my entree off the bill.Would have... More

My prior experience with this restaurant was lunch which was very good. This time five us went there for dinner and had a wonderful meal. The resort itself is very nice and the dining room is beautiful and dramatic because it's entered by walking down a flight of stairs into an airy bright and elegant room with large windows with...

We went to the Goodspeed Opera House and were looking for a nice meal to end our day. My husband researched area restaurants and found this gem. For this caliber restaurant it is not at all expensive but certainly five star! Admittedly we have been here only once, but our meals were extraordinary, the service wonderful and the views spectacular.... More

After reading the reviews of this restaurant, I started to look other places to celebrate my birthday, but decided to take a chance. I am so happy that my family joined me in a delicious Sunday brunch. Everything was perfect from the food to the staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. There were so many choices of foods and... More

Too Bad the Hotel has an outdate Pet Policy that does not allow pets. Thank goodness their bartender, knows how to make the perfect Bloody Mary! Cheers!

Went for Sunday Brunch with husband on our anniversary. From our seats, we could see the glistening beach. The food was amazing. Anything you could possibly want they had and it was all very fresh, The vanilla cupcakes with a chocolate chip cookie dough center was too die for. Our service was not very good however, which could be blamed... More

We just stayed at the hotel last week. We thought we'd have a lovely dinner at the restaurant with friends we haven't seen in 2 years and have room service sent up for our children and my mom who was "babysitting". The kids were going to have "movie night" in the room - it should have been a perfect evening... More

If I could give this place zero stars! I would! We went to the Thanksgiving buffet for the first time yesterday (Nov 2013). They were heavily overbooked (1200 people from 11am-7pm), and we had to wait 45 mins for a table that we reserved. Most of the people seemed to have enjoyed the food, but if you are a purist... More
