“Best view of the harbor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Nice restaurant and nice view. Prices were reasonable for being in a great location. I had the gigantic burger; you might want to split it with a friend.

“Great food, service, and happy kid....what more could we want?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We ended eating dinner here unexpectedly-- just walking along the Wharf and realized that we were hungry. No wait. We had a table with great views over the water which entertained our 3-yr old. We had their early dinner special which included entree, warm bread, and salad/soup. I think I had a flatfish like sole (it was a few weeks ago and my memory is fuzzy!) and vegetables- portions were large and tasty. It was very reasonably priced. Our son had an awesome child's plate of pasta and marinara for $3 (he loved the dish, we loved the price). Service was prompt and courteous. Would definitely come back here again.

“Nice View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Food was better than average and priced about what you'd expect in a high-tourist area. We were a little disappointed in the wine and beer selections, but the grilled artichoke appetizer made up for that. The view is nice, especially if you get a table on the far end of the restaurant. They have a public upstairs viewing area of the bay which offered a great place to see otters and seals.

“Good vista and excellent food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We tried this place on a Saturday evening at dinner time because the other places had long wait times. Lucky for us as this proved to be very good. It's all the way to the end of the old municipal pier. Like the other restaurants it was busy. After a short wait we got a table for two in the back against the window looking out over the harbor. Beautiful view.
My wife got the grilled salmon and it was cooked just right. Tender.
I got the crab melt sandwich. Loved it. Crusty roll with plenty of crab filling. Even the fries were good.
We were very happy with this pace.
