Nice oceanfront dining

We stopped in to try out the food to maybe find a place to have a rehearsal dinner. Service was good as the restaurant wasn't busy at all. Noon on a Thursday. My favorite appetizer was the breads and spreads. Mahi bites were alright. The cold boiled shrimp were great.

Our server was excellent and magically appeared when we needed her and gave us privacy when we didn't. Great spot for an adventurous romantic dinner --- under a tent, wind blowing off the ocean, on the water but still in civilization (e.g. not a sticky floor pirate-themed seafood place). Food was very good...solid on preparation and ingredients from a rather... More

Good food and wait staff but too expensive for me! My husband had the lobster dinner and I had crab cakes. Both were good, but not excellent and the tab with drinks was around $140.00. Not worth it to me.

We were staying at the hotel and encountered pouring rain our first night there so decided to stay there for dinner. It was a very pleasant surprise. The waitress was very friendly and professional. The menu is somewhat limited, but both of us found seafood that was delicious. We also had breakfast there each morning at the buffet and it... More

This restaurant has a really nice outdoor patio that is near the ocean (can't see the ocean though). Food was great too.

We were guests at the hotel and wanted to hold a celebration dinner for graduation, so we chose to stay local and have it here. Deco upscale decor, attentive staff, dining options inside and out (weather permitting). The menu is surprisingly limited, and it is not cheap...but to a person our party raved about their meal. Definitely upscale type menu,... More

The positive first is our waitress Lena was great but it went downhill from there. It's a very limited menu and there were at least 3 things that they ran out of. We started out with soup it was hot and good, not great because the side toast was burnt. The Caesar salad was very good but my apple and... More

The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and it was modern. The service was ok. The food was the worst we have ever had. We had to send back two dishes and one of them we had to send back twice. One of us ordered a salad and a soup. The other one ordered a caesar salad and the third one... More

We had the prix fixe Saturday menu. We both ended up ordering prime rib. It was spectacular -- one of the best I have ever had. The broccolini that came with it was perfect. Even the mashed potatoes were amazing. But the overall atmosphere and service was not quite what one would expect of a 5-star place.
