Cioppino was hearty and great, chowder was disappointing

I think it depends on what you order here. We arrived in town late and they are one of the few places by the waterfront open. The cioppino was full of great seafood and a nice broth - a good value. My wife had chowder and it was overly creamy for us and lacking of clams - a not so... read more

Disappointment beyond measure. We felt sick even paying for this garbage. A shameful example of a beautiful town. 84$ for buffet quality food. Most buffets I've tried tasted better, no kidding. Highly advise not ever visiting this restaurant.

Both service and food seem to be hit or miss from reviews I've seen elsewhere. Like most small restaurants you need to order carefully. Make sure the dish you are getting is prepared fresh to order. Stick to local seafood that's in season. Couple it with a cold local craft beer and you'll do just fine.

We all had fish and chips. Just what we were craving. Not the best but certainly not the worst. They are overpriced for the quality and what you receive.

My wife and I had dinner here on a Saturday early evening in late May. In hindsight, not the best choice. I had the Seafood platter, and it was very greasy. I realize it was deep-fried, but there was a little puddle of grease on the bottom of my plate. My wife had a seafood pasta that she said was... More

My husband and I had dinner at the Wheelhouse May 26. It was very disappointing. My husband had a bowel of clam chowder which had a lot of fillers and starches. The salads were mostly sad looking iceberg lettuce with some previously frozen shrimp. My crab cakes very creasy and had to many fillers.

Quiet atmosphere! The menu may look a little pricy, but you receive a lot of food! We had calamari as an appetizer (very good). The blackened halibut was excellent! AND with the entrée you choose 3 sides.

A warm and comfortable haven from the windy waterfront for lunch. Good water views from most tables. Service was excellent... helpful, pleasant, attentive. Menu boasted good selection of seafood options. Ample portions. Large fresh dessert selection. Food ok, but not remarkable.

Whenever someone visits us, this is one of the places we take them. Everyone we've taken loves it. Amazing food. Everything I've had there is absolutely wonderful. Everyone loves their soups, chowder and house salad. Great place for an anniversary dinner or special occasion too. The only thing that could be improved was the service. It wasn't at all bad......
