Ordered 2 bistro burgers and they were weak. The meat had good flavor but the fixings killed it! Small piece of soggy lettuce, small slice tomato that had the core in it. We asked for onion and it was again, 3 super skinny rings. Ordered it through room service and she forgot the ketchup/mustard/mayo, so by the time she came... More

Food was good, service was good wine list is good. Loved the Hook's blue cheese! Ambience was quite nice and close to the beach. The bar room was nicely decorated and the staff were all friendly and helpful.

This is a restaurant for golfers, retirees, and people who want something a little different but not that different. The menu bounces around a lot of recognizable, trendy ingredients such as goat cheese, fruit garnishes, fish, interesting beef cuts. But things are thrown together haphazardly . . . a reuben sandwich made with turkey and "jewish" rye would not be... More

Finally making a review on this local place. We go there a few times a year. The menu changes, but there are a few staples, like Duck, Fish Tacos.... Sometimes the menu is small, sometimes very large. Service is usually very good. Food is always tasty and a lot of dishes have a French flair. Recently, there has been a... More

Dinner for 2 Sunday night and I was not impressed, although I think it's because I ordered incorrectly. We ordered the charcuterie plate as an appetizer and it was very good. Entree was ordered and I went with the shrimp linguine @ $21, one of the more expensive. I asked our spot person what the sauce was. She needed to... More

Elegant ! But with relaxed comfort. Suit and tie or dressy casual. A warm cozy atmosphere to enjoy a delightful dinner. Seating can be indoors or outdoors with a beautiful view. You won't be disappointed. A place to "impress".

My fiance and I try to make reservations well in advance for holidays and special occasions because this hidden gem always fills up quickly (and rightfully so!). The calamari seems to be fresh on our experience (as is the rest of their food) to the point that it even impresses my picky hubs. Our server was attentive but fairly new... More

We had burgers & fish taco and ate on the outdoor patio - the setting was great. The food was good & reasonable. The service could have been better; we arrived about 30 minutes before closing, so it wasn't that crowded. I'd go again, nice place.

My husband and I enjoy coming here for date-night. The food quality is great and we've always had great service. My favorite is the fish tacos and my husband loves the hamburgers.
