Great food!

Our family ate lunch here during our vacation and everyone loved their food! I even took a picture of my lunch so that I could copy it at home.

Just so so. We stopped in for a late dinner, around 9 PM. Not a huge crowd, had to wait for hostess and our server. I had a french dip that was okay but had more onion in it than beef. Ordered a pitcher of margaritas and they were good. Price was reasonable, especially for the location.

This restaurant is pretty awesome indeed. The staff was very welcoming and accommodated our party of 5 on the patio when there was not a lot of room and we didn't have a reservation on a Saturday evening. Their Pina Colada is sooo good I had several. Their coconut shrimps are also pretty special. The price is also extremely fair... More

Had a business meeting and breakfast here. Nice location in Seaport Village by the sea. They also have a nice little terrace so you can sit outside as well. Breakfast was really good. Staff was friendly and very flexible. One of our group had a lactose intolerance. She wanted to order a latte with nonlactose milk. They did not have... More

The only place in Seaport that looked worth calling into. We grabbed a few beers with nofood. The food we saw going out did look tasty though

Needed a quick lunch near the Hyatt where the conference was. Food and service was decent. Try to get a table outside if you can.

Good people watching from the terrace. Server was friendly and informal; breakfast was just right. Could have sat there all morning enjoying the sun and relaxing. Good place to stop if you're wandering around the waterfront or staying in one of the big convention hotels on the harbor (Marriott, Hyatt, etc.) Seaport Village is really touristy - I'm sure they...

This is right in Seaport Village. Get a room on the small deck, and you get a view of the water and of the people walking by on the pier. The surfboard pizza was fantastic. The service was fine. I ate their twice over a five day period. Prices were a bit higher than average, but we are sitting right... More

The atmosphere is nice, the view is nice, but the food is just ok. If you are expecting something special for an entree of $16 and up....don't.

This restaurant is located in Seaport Village right along the path that goes by the marina. There is ample indoor and outdoor (shaded) seating. Service was decent. The shrimp ceviche would be more accurately called 'shrimp cocktail' as it appears on the receipt. Fish and chips were good. The diet coke was like any other diet coke. It's a bit... More
