The history of the building attracted us initially but we have been back frequently because of the excellent food. This is fine dining, not your usual tourist town fried seafood. Excellent wine list. great staff.

Great seafood. A nice place to go for the evening after you've taken off the Swimsuit and sand. Shorts are fine as long as they are on the kids. The seafood is as fresh as you would expect in a seaside venue. Very nicely appointed and good service when I've been there. I had a shrimp dish. It was perfectly... More

Dinner at Roosevelt's was nostalgic for us because the restaurant is located in the original space occupied by legendary Beulah's, the site of some of our most wonderfully memorable meals in the long past. The place looked the same; the service was just as gracious and attentive as in years past; the presentations were even more beautiful than in the... More

We have been coming to Roosevelts since it opened five years ago and we have never been disappointed. The food and service are consistently outstanding! We started of with the Warm Spinach salad which is always great. The ladies ordered the Coconut Shrimp and savored every bite. My friend had the tenderloin which he could not stop talking about. I...

We dined there last night for the first time... and all we could say is WOW. The greek salad we excellent, non-traditional with big chunks of onion, cucumber etc but more greek garden saladish. The rack of lamb, which both my wife and I love, was incredible. Juicy, tasty, meaty... served with potatoes broiled (excellent) and green beans and asparagus.... More

i came very sceptical to this tiny little restaurant. The food I ordered was just great oysters that without a doubt could be meal by itself and then I had a fish. Both prepared with "heart put into" a meal by a chef. Service was quick and excellent in professional manner. VERY RECOMMENDED

This venue is a cut above, and several more, the restaurants in the Port A area. The menu focuses on fresh seafood and savoury meats, all well-prepared and pleasingly plated. We were eating late because we didn't reserve, so we skipped the appetizers. Two of our party had the New York strip loin, each done perfectly medium rare and so... More

Our favorite place to eat in Port A every year lived up to our previous expectations. We took a couple from Canada to let them experience what we had been raving about and they were thoroughly bowled over. From the stupendous and unique roasted garlic and balsamic glazed bread appetizer, the blue cheese and chipotle wedge salad, entrees to desserts,... More
