Food was great service was very good! The Montrey Oysters are outstanding. No one had anything that they did not rave about. They make a great Dark and Stormy

Food, service and atmosphere were all great. My wife was able to get a delicious cod and I had a nice and spicy seafood fra diablo. Both meals were superb and then we told it was a 20 percent off day. Nice quiet atmosphere and very clean. Can't wait to go back.

Delicious and very fresh seafood served here. We enjoyed the seafood Fra Diablo so much that we went back again another day to have the same meal. And don't miss the baked chocolate pudding.

We chose this restaurant after reading other TripAdvisor reviews and so glad we did. Having visited the Cape for years, we never paid attention to this restaurant because it's exterior appearance is a bit shabby. However, inside is a cozy and lovely dining room with expert staff and service. We felt we were given the best table in the house... More

Started with shrimp cocktail; 5 for $12. Cocktail sauce was suppose to be jack Daniels but no just regular. We both had the veal saltimbocca which was pretty good. GREAT scalloped potatoes & veggies. Nice salty prosciutto and tender veal. A little too much cheese though when served with the cheesy potatoes. Our waitress Lexi was great. We will return... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely brunch here for our anniversary. The restaurant did not open until 11:30, which I thought was a little late for the Sunday after church crowd. That being said we enjoyed our meal and drinks very much. I had a steak eggs onion and cheese scramble with home fries and fresh fruit. My husband... More

How lovely to hear a server respond to requests with "my pleasure" instead of the usual, "no problem". Gee, I sure hope it is not a problem to order food in a restaurant! That phrase alone would bring is back to the Academy.

Because the innkeepers of Ship's Knees Inn recommended this excellent restaurant, we chose to have a romantic dinner there. We were not disappointed.

This latest visit was our fourth visit - 2 lunches/2 dinners. All four visits have yielded excellent service and remarkable cuisine. Beer-battered Halibut was perfect. Assorted swordfish, scallop, and shrimp with béarnaise sauce dish was pronounced extraordinarily good. My small beer order problem was quickly corrected with one on the house. This place has become a favorite. Open most of... More
