Excellent atmosphere

Attended a banquet there. The view of the ocean and the splashing waves were breathtaking. The lighting and the atmosphere inside the restaurant were quite romantic. The food was tasty, and prepared with elegance. Would go back.

Last Friday we went to the Marine Room for dinner. It was high tide and the waves, to quote the chef, were kissing the windows. They've been know to pound the windows, so a high tide brunch is an awesome experience. At night, the beach is lit up by spotlights, so you can clearly see the surf. Every window in... More

Excellent beef tenderloin, very creative mixed drinks, and with a full moon rising, a very big splash sitting by the glass windows. The Marine Room is elegant, excellent, and beautiful. Treat yourself to a dinner with a view!

Absolutely the best atmosphere, dinner and service for our birthday celebration ! One slight flaw.... We asked for brown butter with lobster and filet dinner only to be told they only have drawn butter. We were hoping the chef could make that accommodation. Otherwise, perfection!

You have to add this to your list of places to eat. The food, service and the view is hard to beat. Having dinner, watching the waves roll in adds a great romantic touch. The food and service is hard to beat.

The Marine Room's atmosphere and food (plating and options - not something I usually comment on) were dated, but very well done. I did not love the flavors of my meal, but all was well cooked. It's fun to try new things. I wouldn't think to leave a review except for the strange varying in service we received. The wait... More

Although the view was wonderful and the staff was attentive the food was average at best. The decor could use an update. I expected to see Dean, Frank and Sammy walk through the door at any moment. Could be much better given the location and competition.

Superb location for an upscale dining experience. Incredible views, intimate atmosphere, excellent service and upscale cuisine. Not your run of the mill eatery. If you are looking for traditional fare, this is not it. If you are looking for a posh dining experience, this will suit the bill. Speaking of bills, yours will probably be very high. This place is... More
