11 of us met to wish friends farewell as they move across country. They arranged tables by the fire with an amazing view of York River. Food, service, and drink were outstanding! Thank you! We will return!

The restaurant is a very short walk from the Duke of York Hotel. We had the BEST table in the place, the bay window (on the left).Although it was getting dark and starting to rain, the view across the river was beautiful!!! We could see Christmas lights in the distance and barges lighting up the end of the river (probably... More

Nice view. Very good calamari and lobster bisque. It took more than an hour and half for our entrees to come out. I finally went to the desk to ask about getting our food. The fried platter was not very good, Fried flounder had way too much batter and was soggy in spots and hard and overlooked in others. Fried... More

This restaurants was rated so high which is why we decided to go here on our trip and because it had a "waterfront" view. They had a lot of seafood on their menu but no shrimp? What kind of seafood restaurant doesn't offer shrimp?! Anyways...we ordered. Our waitress wasn't too nice or friendly which didn't help her tip. Only brought... More

We had a similar experience. In 20 years that we're married I've only seen my husband complain about a meal two times. This was one of them. He loves lobster but said this stuffed lobster was the worst he has ever had. The claws were completely dried out so he couldn't get any meat out. The stuffing was bread with... More

75* in December! We sat outside, on the York River and were joined by Mr &Mrs Claus. The server, Ben aka Richard the LionHearted, was a part time comic. He kept us amused and gave us good service. The crab cake sandwich and lobster potpie were terrific! The adult beverages, pricey. The kitchen was a little slow but we didn't... More

I read some of the negative reviews and ended up scratching my head, wondering what it takes to please some people! This is a sleek, gorgeous eatery right on the water with food that someone who cares passionately has prepared. There were two missteps; prime rib ordered medium that arrived well done and dessert served on top of an extremely... More
