We did not have high expectations, as this looked like any other hotel restaurant. We were very pleasantly surprised, therefore, when we got one of the best seafood meals in years. The clam chowder was delicious and obviously homemade. Based on this we then sprang for the lobster and rice. It seemed expensive, but it was actually a bargain. It... More

It had been awhile since our last visit, and just like all other times we have been here we were treated like family. We were surprised to see the great new color and the wonderful art work on the walls. We were told they were doing some updating and that more changes were coming soon, can't wait to see them....

We weren't expecting much from this place from the outside, but what a lovely surprise. Great home-cooked food and charming staff. We loved the decor - it's what gives the place character - and the food we had was really good and huge portions too. The key lime pie was divine! Highly recommended.

I am not sure where to start...it was that bad. This was a first time visit. We visited on a Sunday afternoon with 5 in our party. The décor is shabby. A previous review referred to the new look so I would hate to see the old look. The wallpaper was peeling, the chairs were from the 70's and all... More

Lovely views of the York River, fast fresh breakfast with very good service. Prices are reasonable and I enjoy walking on the beach in the morning. (Beach right across the street). Have only eaten lunch here once but it was a pleasurable experience as well.

We are breakfast regulars but the "Duke" will fix you whatever you want anytime of the day. Tried their grilled Boar's Head Roast Beef and Swiss Cheese on Rye sandwich--OMG--the flavors were amazing. This is such a special place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner. Locals and tourists chattering away, a happy atmosphere, quality food, great presentations, reasonable prices, cheerful... More
