This was the first time dining here. I had the 8 ounce NY Strip, it was cooked to perfection. The service was outstanding. Good atmosphere. I will be a returning guest.

The food and service is good. A little pricey for locals, but we appreciate having this establishment as an close by option for a date night.

Excellent food. Tom the cook can't be beat. Seafood is as good as you can get in the area. Parking is always easy. My favorite is that they have hush puppies.

Had lunch here and we were starved after a long road trip without breakfast. Menu is mostly "pub food" but the waitress was helpful & welcome. She made great recommendations for beers (Rebel ale), and something called "crabby fries"... An incredibly good & obscene (large) order of good (not greasy) fries smothered in a creamed crab sauce & broiled with... More

Had crab cake and salmon at the Vista. The food was good and so were the prices. The server, Brittany, was great, too.

Nice place, friendly service and LOUSY food! The prices are quite high for the quality of food. Don't let the menu fool you, the food is terrible. I was expecting some real good food from the looks of the place. You're better off going to walmart and buying a box of frozen seafood and popping it in the oven for... More

We reserved the side room for dinner for our family reunion -- we did this weeks in advance. The private room was nice, but they didn't staff us properly. Slow service from initial drinks to service. Some were done eating before others had their food - if they could not handle the crowd in the kitchen, then don't take the... More

While the service was great, I'd have to say that the food was really only okay. And other than our waitress - who was cute as a button and sweet too - the other personnel there acted like we were an imposition. Not keen to take another meal there.

This restaurant is very average. The food is doable but you won't leave praising anything about this place, including the atmosphere. It's a restaurant/hotel. Plus it's pricey! One of us didn't even drink any alcohol and the bill got to $56 for two (1 appetizer, a couple of beers, two mid priced entrees). Head to Shepardstown, WV for a much... More

The food was good and our waitress was great. It was freezing in there. I probalby wouldn't choose it if I hadn't been staying in the hotel.
