Great spot!

The Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House is what every tourist looks for...great food, great seating beside the water, great service. Maybe a little price for the average tourist but well worth the splurge. Service was great! Creme Brûlée, wonderful, spaghetti squash, great! shrimp scampi, to die for!!

This restaurant has a great view, amazing history, and the best Shrimp and Lobster (Lobstah) Bisque in the Continental United States of America. The sherry made it mouth blowing. Our taste buds had never experienced anything like this before.

Over priced not nearly as good as my last visit 3 years ago. Still a great location but the food was cold and salty. Service was good not planning a return visit. Disappointed

I had the coconut shrimp and fried plantains, excellent. My husband had the fried shrimp and the salad bar. The salad bar is wonderful for 4.99 added onto your lunch entree or 10.99 alone, lots to choose from and very clean and well maintained. Outside seating is available, but it was a little hot for us, although they do have... More

This place is right on the water and offers a beautiful view. The menu consists of fresh fish daily along with staples like salad bar, homemade meatloaf or pot pies to name a few. They have excellent seafood bisque, this is a must topped with sherry.

Dining at the Dolphin is about more than the good food. It can be a memorable experience if you have never dined there before. This is a very popular, but pretty much a middle of the road restaurant. We have enjoyed lunch and dinner there on numerous occasions and have always had consistently good food and decent service. It is... More

In the years that my wife and I have been going there we have yet to have been served a poor meal.The wait staff is also very accommodating;it takes... More

While working in the area we stumbled upon this place. Well worth it. Beautiful view and breeze on the patio. Signature Mahi dish was outstanding. Side of Alaskan king crab legs very fresh. All sides were delicious. Service outstanding. Would definitely return.
