Nice view of the bay

Beautiful view of the bay. In the summer, expect to wait. If you have someone in your party that can't walk well, drop him/her off at the door. Also, you can go out the back after eating (but, can't come in that way).

Not a seafood person...so I opted for the chicken marsala...delicious...the others ordered either steak or seafood and said it was great. Good portions...good drinks...a little pricey but worth it for a nice night out.

Ok I'm not a fish lover. I opted for the steak and it was ok. My husband had lobster and said it was fantastic. Great location nearby the beach, parking plentiful and servers helpful and friendly. Would I go back? Jury's out! - its not bad. Just, lots of other restaurants nearby that I prefer.

The ocean ribeye ROCKS! We usually sit at the bar. Only downside is the older female bartender likes to talk too much when the bar is not crowded.

We were told by our hotel about the clam place near by but after traveling all day we wanted something a little more sit down. We spotted this restaurant as we were walking by and decided to go in. We sat outside enjoying the water view and they had a live band on the second floor. The food was great!!!... More

I'm not saying nice surprise because I wasn't expecting much, but because we just happened upon it. We were in the area for the day, to watch our son's x country meet at a nearby park. My husband and I took a drive and ended up at Orchard (?) Beach, where this restaurant is located . I had the fish... More

I have eaten here several times. The mussels are a great start to a meal. I had the fish and chips, the veggie wrap, and chowder and clam cakes. The prices are reasonable.

My shrimp scampi was fantastic. The shrimp is massive and absolutely perfectly cooked. What a treat it is to sit in an open dining room with windows in every direction looking out over the bay. Absolutely a great choice for dinner or lunch. I'll be back any time I'm in there

I was in the area due to an overnight business trip. I had time after my meeting and happened to run across this restaurant. It was around 5pm and the place was not that busy so very easy to get a table by the window. John T, my waiter was spot on and very attentive. He gave great recommendations and... More
