“Good, but not great selection.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Must be off season. Selection skimpy, but nice ambience. Would go back during high season to try out other menu choices.

“Not as good as it should be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This place has great potential with being on the water and having a great space. Unfortunately, it falls short. The menu is so so, and the food that is delivered tastes like it could have come from anywhere. It is nothing special, except for the cheesecakes. The desserts are almost always awesome, even if it sounds like something you wouldn't want to try. The wait staff is usually friendly and helpful, but there is one male bartender - who works at night, that unless you are a woman, will not pay attention to you. It's OK, because I'm sure his tips reflect that. I don't know why it is hard for bartenders to understand that if they give good service, they will get repaid for it?

“Great atmosphere, terrible service, limited menu.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

Decor great, service is horrible. Waitress didn't offer up the specials, unsure of them when asked. She couldn't keep our glasses full of water or tea. She mumbled when she spoke to us. The table was dirty. The chairs were full of crumbs. The menu had little seafood despite the name of the restaurant. The fish was bland as was most everything else. The Caesar salad didn't have any croutons. Overall very disappointing.
