We went for dinner. We had the steamed pork & vegetable pot-stickers which were excellent. The chowder was just ok. My wife had a 1.5 lb lobster. We had the same in Nantucket. This one was much smaller. It was overcooked. I had the fried scallops. They were not very good. The facility over looks the water. We ate inside... More

We had drinks on a warm Saturday afternoon, great staff, great beverages, and priceless views. The Bloody Mary's were to die for and the appetizers were fabulous as well.

Even with a busy Saturday night crowd, we enjoyed our visit and our meals. We had a great waitress, who took great care of us.

yes, this is a seafood restaurant, and the seafood is delicious. the view is also great, and the entire restaurant has been recently renovated and is clean and bright. but the reason i keep going back is the burger - it's one of the best i've ever eaten, don't know why! service is friendly, and prices are reasonable.

Best view for dining and an exquisite copper bar. Food as other have noted, was hit or miss. My lobster roll was the best of the week but husband's fish was just ok. Other diners seemed to feel similarly. Excellent bloody Mary's and pomegranate cosmo's.
