Had a wonderful dinner on Saturday night and the food was wonderful. Our server Robin was warm and friendly. She couldn't do enough for us. This restaurant is open all week in season, but it's great to have a weekend retreat in the off season.

Went on a Saturday night. Good food and we were pleasantly surprised to find that there was live entertainment a girl and 3 guys (Maybe there were 4 guys). Very talented. They also had dancing and if you wanted to watch TV they had a bunch of them. But we really enjoyed the group on stage. and the food was... More

This was the best crab imperial I've ever had! Baked potato and salad were great as well. I'd prefer to choose my own vegetables... but had plenty to eat besides their choice. The Malibu Bay Breeze was perfectly blended as well.

and a wonderful view of fishing boats and a harbor full of fish surfacing for food. Professional staff, delicious food, places for both couples and large families to sit.

Awful, not one good thing to say. My wife's crab cakes were all filler and my fried flounder was raw in the middle. We asked to see a manager but one never appeared. Over priced, not worth the money. Stay away , also rest rooms are disgusting.

As soon as my husband and I arrived at the restaurant we were greeted by the lovely hostess Kim. We were seated right away and our waitress came right over to us. She was very nice and checked on us throughout our meal. The food was very good. My husband got the famous lobster bisque and it was delicious. For... More

We had an early dinner here and it was quite good. The waitress was slow but efficient and the food was good. The ladies ordered drinks and were able to keep the glass as a souvenir. We really liked the gentleman valet who ran to get our car for us and helped my elderly father. We would come back.

There is a reason they had no wait to get in. We even gave them a second visit only because everywhere else had a long line and we got even worse service. I could not imagine if they were actually busy. Food is just ok but plenty pricey and my clam chowder came out cold. We got our apps the... More
