“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

One of my favorite places. I go there often and bring all my out of town guests because not only is the food great and the service terrific but the atmosphere and view is fantastic and beautiful. Such a zen, relaxing place.

“Nice view but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

We arrived about 7 and even though there was only one other booth occupied and two tables on the deck, it took us about 30 minutes to start getting our appetizers, which showed up one at a time over a period of about 20 minutes. Dinner was worse because they started getting busy. The four dinners we ordered came one at a time, up to 10 minutes apart. One salad was brought to the table AFTER three of the dinners had already been brought out. In fairness tho, they DID take it off the bill.
The waitress was nice enough but seemed to be the only person working and unfortunately the food was hit-or-miss.
Two of us had the New England Lobster Roll that is shown on their own website's menu as costing $16 but was actually $21. While it was good, the accompanying French Fries were soggy and cold and the coleslaw was watery and room temp. SImilar price differences and quality issues on on just about everything else.
In Summation: It took over two hours to be served an "OK" meal with very slow, spotty, service at a cost of over $150 for four with only two glasses of wine and one beer.
Would not really recommend nor will we be going back.
Too bad cause it is a GREAT location.

“Great place right on the ocean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Lots of beer choices! The smoked mahi appetizer was to die for! It's a small place and all the eating is outside under canopy or awning. Live music was awesome! Check it out!

“Great Location, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I must have visited a different location than some of the negative reviewers. I found Anglins Beach Cafe charming. Our server was very attentive and our food was tasty. I agree that it was a bit pricey, $42 for two, but the location, the atmosphere was well worth it.

This place rocked! The ambiance is fantastic! The food was just okay and pricey...but you are really paying for the location. We had a great time.
