I've only been here twice, but the experience does not leave me wanting to go again. Offhand and slow service and mediocre food. Popular with tourists because of the location. Maybe this leads to the so-so attitude.

I had the filet mignon and it was delicious, especially with the sauce they provided. We were there at dusk and got to see them feeding the tarpon that had gathered around the dock. It was fascinating. In case you wonder why I didn't get any of the seafood dishes, l'm allergic. My dinner companion had the seafood and said... More

Great view and very impressionable service the greeting was the worse part, we were not felt welcome at all by the hostess, not a busy day either. Food was average. This place should be awesome with the location

We love this place at sundown. On the water with spectacular western views of the bay. we mostly get drinks and apps as the dinners are expensive and medium. However it is a fabulous place to snack and cocktail.

Beautiful view of the bay, great cocktails, nice Saturday night entertainment in the bar area but the reason we came here were the lobsters. 1, 11/2, an 2 ponders were offered. We all ordered the 1 1/2 pounders. They were pricey at $40 but that was ok because we were very excited to have this treat. When I mentioned to... More

The waterfront setting is just lovely, and every table has a view. Unfortunately, the service has been poor on every visit and food extremely inconsistent: wavering from good to average or worse.

We didn’t have a good feeling when a large tour bus dropped off about 60 senior citizens as we ordered our drink. We thought that was strange on a Saturday night. The view is wonderful but the wonderful ended there. Our Caesar salad was fine. When our meal came, the waitress came back after a few moments and asked how... More

We sat on their patio overlooking the harbor, it was such a peaceful lunch. Our party ordered the fish and chips, they were fantastic. The batter was cooked to perfection with moist fish, also the french fries and homemade cole slaw was delicious. The lobster rolls was perfect, served with drawn butter on a toasted roll... The only drawback is... More

A special dinner out for our party of 4 on a Sunday afternoon, we thought the place would be mobbed, but it was nearly empty. $13 for a beet salad that had 3 slices of CANNED BEETS on it should have been the first clue this place was no bang for lots of bucks. We all ordered 1 1/2 lb... More
