We decided to celebrate some winnings from the local casino and people asked for a nice place to eat. I suggested The Shore since it was right on the water and the food is very good. We were not disappointed!
Be sure if you plan on going during the summer that you make a reservation. They apparently only make enough reservations so they can put people outside if requested, but have the inside available in case the weather turns.
We chose a Saturday night where the lot was packed and the location was even busier (apparently several weddings were being enjoyed at the same time we were there). Our server was just okay (appeared to be the hostess filling in on a very busy night), but the location and the food made up for it. The portions were good size (each of us had take homes and that is unusual for me!) and the food really was very good.
Looking out over the water and all the activity on the grounds was fun. They have another bar and snack area that was just packed with people all night long (we never felt we were staying too long at our table), and there was a large tent that appeared to be hosting a wedding reception. Lots of activity!
The restaurant is clean and appears updated. It is easy to enjoy. But I should mention that while we waited in the bar area, it was apparent that parts of the hotel need some updating. The furniture was getting worn and even parts of the ceiling had shown it had been awhile since it had seen attention. This did not impact our dinner- it's just a side note.
