Good even on the off-season

This was my fiancé and my first trip to the Greenhouse and we were not disappointed. It was a cool and windy day before the last day of summer so there were not many people in the restaurant. So the service was incredibly fast, but also friendly. Just soft drinks and no appetizers because we wanted... read more

We came here after a Saturday on the beach looking for a nice deck experience, a good cocktail, and dinner. First of all this is a very schizophrenic place... 3 restaurants in one. It's almost like it doesn't know what it wants to be, or it wants to cater to all. There is a fine dining restaurant, an outside deck... More

We Love sitting out on the deck and enjoying cocktails and their amazing Mussels.. Most of all we love the new appearance of it and how it's been made to also be used in colder months. The prices are a little above average but don't mind paying it since we don't frequent too often.. The pizza is really good too!!

We ate in the large covered deck. Very noisy from piped in music and conversations, but very good food and attentive, friendly wait staff. Just off the beach, it's so very informal. Great for families with youngkids. Terrific cheese steaks and shrimp wraps.

The pizza is very good. The cheeses fries we love. Chicken fingers for the kids are always a winner. Quick service and everything on the menu is good.

This place is so so overpriced; it's a wonder anyone goes there. The Tiki Bar food is awful, microwaved junk.

Slow service, dull menu, food average, overpriced. Went for a lunch from the beach with 10 people (mostly kids). The service was haphazard. There were no positive comments on the food,

We went to see Lucy (right next door)...then ventured over for a casual supper upstairs. Had burgers, fries and chicken wings and all were very good with good portions. Clams were good...but very small portion. The service was average. The seating was quick (as they were not busy) and the outdoor view is very nice. Menu is not bad when... More
