“Beautiful view and good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

You will definitely want to get a reservation for this restaurant. They get quite busy at primetime, but well worth the wait if you can't get seated right away. I've been here twice, and both times the drinks were well made and the food was excellent. Lunch most recently presented us with the best sliders we have ever eaten!

“Average view, average food, terrible service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

My husband and I ate here one night on the advice of the Inn we were staying at. I was seriously less than impressed. It is set at a Marina and if you enjoy looking at other people's boats this is the place for you. Spectacular water views, not so much. The service was terrible, and we were there late and they were not busy so there really was no excuse. The salads were average. The crab appetizer we ordered was the best part. Delicious. The waitress was too busy on her cell phone to be attentive. We had to flag someone down to get more drinks. Had to flag someone down again to get the check. I also felt like it was way overpriced for the atmosphere and food quality. I am not one to care about the cost of a good meal, especially on vacation, but this place just did not do it for me.

“Overpriced view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

The crabcakes were good but not sensational. The bouillabaisse was good but not sensational. The view is lovely. The service is lackadaisical. It is high price to pay for average quality food and less than average service.

“Good Food, but overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Food was excellent, but overpriced. $42. for Salmon Dinner.

We were seated in the Pelican Room. Felt like being seated in a garage. Cold and drafty. My boyfriend was seated right by the door. Everytime someone came in, his chair was bumped. We asked for a different table, as there were several empty. Was told no.

When we made reservations, I feel we should have been told that we were not in the main dining room. The music was coming from a TV set by the bar. THe view we saw was the kitchen staff having cigarette breaks.

Will not be back.

“Good food, nice view, but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

The small restuarant's decor is basic, but the view of the marina and harbor is nice. Food was good, though not great, and rather pricey.
