Our family of four decided to eat out Christmas dinner at the hotel restaurant, our expectations were for a tasty meal given our prior lunch experience. At the end of the evening we were left very disappointed in the overall experience. While the prices were high; the quality and quantity of the food, and the presentations were below standard and...

Beautiful view from a well decorated dining room inside the Hotel Bellwether. While the service was good and we enjoyed our omelettes each morning, the breakfast buffet was more limited than you will find in hotels of similar quality. Despite the limited buffet options, the ambiance and service made it a worthwhile experience.

The hotel is very nice and I love the outside seating. Service is good and prices are fair. I do wish they had a better happy hour menu. Really miss the shrimp they used to have on their menu.

Great view of a beautiful sunset. Good wine list and some good seafood too, however the "medium" oysters were pretty small...made me wonder what the "small" would be Go on a Friday night for live piano!

The wine list was great. The service was wonderful. The view was spectacular. The ambiance was perfect. We dined on some delicious oysters on the half shell, fresh clam chowder, and a yummy Caesar salad. We ate I the bar and they had piano entertainment that night. It was a perfect evening.
