Based on previous reviews, I was looking forward to this meal. We missed it on the way into Solomon's restaurant area because it was in a "professional building" of sorts (2 story building for small shops as you might find in a small town). There was an Edward Jones financial office upstairs. I wanted to say this first since I never really got over eating in a professional building compared to all of the other restaurants which were either on the water or in the waterfront area of Solomon's.
The decor inside is intimate, the service was fine and the drinks were fine too. The menu was somewhat limited and the food was often more complicated than it needed to be. The fish dishes were mostly prepared with very strong and distinct sauces (cheesy cream or BBQ for example) which was overpowering when a simple presentation would have been much better. This was especially unfortunate since the fish's freshness and quality was so apparent.
I don't want you to think I had some terrible incident there and am trying to get back at the restaurant. I always say it is all about the expectations. My expectation was of a quaint restaurant with elegant food and so I was disappointed on those counts. Many of the other restaurants on Solomon's "stretch" of establishments were for a younger, partying crowd so we certainly preferred CD's to those. However, there was one we walked by that seemed low key and it was on a pier that was out, over the water and we were told that they had great seafood. Sorry I didn't get the name. Just go past the public parking areas to the first restaurant on the right.
