Definitely not a good choice if you are in Oyster pond area ! Food is very 'simple', not tasty and quit expensive ! I will remember this place as a 'to forget' restaurant !

Dinner was very good. We didn't feel rushed. A very enjoyable night in a great atmosphere for our 3 couples.

We found this place on the map while driving for a while exploring the island, this is the place not to go after doing that!. there was a server there who gets too political for this type of places, not everyone is ready to hear so much crap, after a long trip. The worst were the comments against Canadians. We... More

Go on Saturday night when they have the buffet! You will not be disappointed! There was roast beef, turkey, lamb, pork, and fish!

Multiple issues. Very limited parking. Additionally, the hotel shares the limited spaces with the marina, a dive bar, a boating excursion service, as well as the restaurant. An abandoned car took up a very scarce space. Our room was quaint with a great view,but getting onto the patio was complicated by a very difficult to open sticking sliding door with... More

Sailing on a 40' boat, we needed to moor for the night given some bad weather blowing in. Captain Oliver's Marina is good in a pinch, but really, they need to up their game and invest some funds in cleaning it up. Numerous boards on the dock are missing and have been replaced with large square tiles. They advertise showers... More

We go here for lunch every year, although we stay on the other side of the island. Food is good, staff if very friendly and is right on the water. A little difficult to find, but worth it!

We were invited to attend a reception for the traveltalkonline group with snack foods and special drink prices. After the reception we stayed for some snacks and drinks. My bride had the Escargot in puff pastry and I ordered a Caesar salad and pasta Carbonera. The service was excellent and the food very good. Before we finished the meal, the... More

The location of this place is great, adjacent to the hotel, so if you stay at that hotel, the restaurant is extremely convenient. The food was excellent, service was great and they even had a live band. Portions were big, the dessert was huge and so French :) Everything was perfect for a nice dinner overlooking the Oyster Pond Bay.... More
