“View's Great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

My review should end there...and the fact that the over-worked server did a great job. The food was pretty average...we came on a Sunday hoping to have lunch at a different restaurant that came highly recommended but it was closed, so we went across the street and ate out on the deck, enjoying the view & nice weather but that's all the restaurant has going for it in my opinion.

“Perfect view of Fort Knox, the marina and Penobscot River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We saw outside on the deck both times and it was ideal. Good service. Yummy food and lots of local ingredients such as lobster and blue berries! Would have loved to have eaten there more times but our visit was not long enough.

“Great porch with water view, fabulous service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We came upon this place just when we were starving. We needed lunch and had no expectations. At our request, we were seated on the porch. Although the view was gorgeous, it was a very windy day and we were really cold. We requested an inside table and our waitress could not have been more understanding and found us a booth in a jiffy. She was happy to adapt our order to my rather picky tastes and the food was tasty.
We would certainly return any time we're in the neighborhood at lunch time.

“Dinner and a movie spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Our favorite movie theater is just down the street so we combine the two. Working our way thru the menu and never had anything we didn't enjoy. Friendly staff

“Horrible Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Our family has visited this restaurant three times. We will not be visiting again. The service is not worth the great view or the good food.
The waitresses are rude and do not care to even try to think about service. Our orders have always been wrong, missing food, or no service between bringing food and the bill.
Those in the industry need to keep on eye on this restaurant because it will be run into the ground over bad service. Reopen, keep the kitchen staff, ditch the wait staff and you can run a great restaurant.
