They took "theme" to a whole new level! This place is a buffet for the eyes! It is absolutely beautiful, down to the tiniest detail. Gotta check out the salad boat cart! The food is just as impeccable as the scenery. Lets not forget the staff, WOW! They are there for your every desire. Polite, courteous, neat, and very detail... More

Salad served by a congenial young lady was excellent. Unfortunately excellence ended there. Expecting great seafood we were most disappointed as our meals were bland. The one person in our party of four that did not have seafood ordered prime rib that she found to be, although tender, flavorless. For meals that cost upwards of $25.00 each this is unacceptable.

OK, it is a bit of an "old fart" restaurant....but I love it!! It has been around forever, and that says something itself. It is also a nice place for young folks to have a romantic dinner for two. The food is very good (including the salad cart) and the early meals are a fantastic deal!!! They have good bands... More

There early bird (by 6 pm) is wonderful and includes a choice of at least 12 entrees, soup (either clam chowder or lentil) salad ( they bring the cart and you tell them what you want on your plate), rice or potato ( baked or mashed), ice cream or sherbet. We enjoyed the whitefish almondine, which came garnished with broccoli... More

We decided to have dinner and go dancing at Dover Straits with our friends. We were greeted by the friendly hosts and seated. I ordered broiled whitefish and my husband ordered the sea bass. They were both so delicious! Plus they have a salad cart that makes your salad right at your table with your choice of tomatoes, onions, chick... More

My wife and I had dinner here with a friend. We were seated at 5:30 pm just in time for their early bird specials with drastically reduced prices. My wife and I both ordered their Sea Bass, which was good. The meal came with a basket of fresh rolls, which were very good. The meal also came with their salad... More

I visited this restaurant on my birthday with some family members. I had heard it was good and it certainly lived up to its reputation. The décor is brilliant, with lots of fishing murals and a huge fish tank in one corner. Even the salad bar, which is wheeled over to your table is boat shaped, which made us laugh,... More

This place was such an unexpected treasure. We went for lunch, where prices were more than fare. Everything included: soup, salad and dessert. We sat in front of a boat perched on the sandy beach behind us. This place was beautiful there were murals everywhere.. everything was just so thought out. There was a gazebo outside with flowers everywhere when... More
