A Special Treat and Super Eats

We visited the Nonantum for Mother's Day and the food was superb! We don't go out much to "fancy", on the more expensive side restaurants, but knew of this one so we had to try it (on a brunch day). The dinning area is in the lower part of the main hotel and it has that nostalgic feel to it.... read more

Location, location, location! This spot is BEAUTIFUL! We arrived early for dinner and sat on the porch watching the sunset over the ocean. The food was outstanding! I had pine nut encrusted swordfish. It was delicious! We would go back. Fantastic staff! Thank you for a wonderful night!

Our service was great, but the restaurant itself is a bit outdated and felt damp. The shades on the window were appreciated with the bright sun, but they were broken and even the staff couldn't get them to work right. Our food was okay, but certainly not worthy of the price tag. Overall this would be a decent place for... More

We enjoyed a perfect dinner for two with excellent food and service as well as live piano music. We had the farm to sea dinner special and the blueberry ribs; will definitely return.

The live music was fun for our little boy, the food was good. The view of the water was nice. They were very busy so it took awhile for us to get our check, but the staff was all working together to help each other take care of all the customers. There were lots of kids, so I understand.

My husband and I loved this place. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere is so elegant. Our waitress, Kristen, was very polite and well informed about the menu and she was able to get the Chef to change his recipe to accommodate my lactose allergy. Try the German Chocolate cake! it's amazing!!!!!!
