Good food and a wonderful sunset all at our table.

Very good with a very attentive waiter, Anthony made our dinner very special with his knowledge of the food. Our meal finished just prior to a very beautiful sunset viewed from table and in front of restaurant.l

We tried this place twice during our stay, since it was associated with the resort. Not great service, unless you were one of the bartender's regulars. We got ignored most of the night, but tried to make the most of a good night.

We took the kids for the crab races and they loved it! The food selection is somewhat limited and pricey for what you get but is good. The atmosphere and family fun is definitely what makes it worth the visit.

Four of us were very pleasantly surprised with the freshness and quality of all of our meals. My husband had the special which was a braised pork shank...it fell off the bone and was very delicious.

A try to do "fine dining" but without the touch. Clam chowder that looked and tasted awful. Steak and fish ok and do was the kids menu. Atmosphere was a little stiff. Ok place but nothing I would go back to.

Change in menu but enough of a variety for dinner. Bar drinks were perfect and the food is excellent. Only negative was the waiter way too much cologne on but is was thoughtful and attentive. We keep returning because of quality.
