Had Sunday breakfast here. My husband had a lobster omelet and it was stuffed with delicious lobster. I had the Eggs Benedict, and it was very good. Only complaint- the coffee is on the weak side. Otherwise a pleasant ocean-view place for breakfast

This was our first time eating at a restaurant for Thanksgiving Dinner. After looking at other Thanksgiving menus we chose Aleathea's because it was the most traditional. We requested a table in the corner because we have an infant and they were very accommodating to that request. We also have nut allergies and our server was very good about letting... More

My wife & I took advantage of the "Early Bird Special" on the Friday of the Exit 0 Jazz Fest. What a great deal: 3 courses and wine for $25.00 each! We split an appetizer (try the "lamp lollypops"!), salads, delicious filet mignon and shared cheesecake for dessert! Great location! Great service! Great food! Great deal!

Dined here for an entire weekend! Two dinners, two breakfasts. Menu was excellent. Highly recommend the rack of lamb. It was served with a Frangelica Cream sauce that was to die for! My husband had the special Venison and raved about it. Also tried the Sea Bass in a Chipino broth, out of this world! Staff was attentive, friendly and... More

My husband and I came for the early bird on Saturday Oct. 25. There were numerous papers on their windows and on their outside board stating that the early bird seating was now from 5 - 6 on Fri. and Sat. evenings. We changed our booking from 5:30 to 5:45 because of that and were assured that that would be... More

The entrance to Aleathea's reminds us a little of dining at the eminent Red Lion Inn in the Berkshires. The dining room was in use for two private parties, but the porch was available and is less formal than the dining room...prettier to our tastes in a comfortable, relaxed kind of way...and with an even better view of the Ocean....

Selections are varied and the portions are more than what you pay for. I have never had a meal that I did not wish I could finish!

Had the grouper at Aleathea's. It was cooked to perfection. The presentation was just beautiful ( looked so beautiful i didn't want to eat it.) This was the only place on the island that was open & served this fish. One other person in my group ordered it was well & had rave reviews as well. The other 2 ladies... More
