The decor seems like it has not been changed since the 80s, and you can tell that is what the patrons love about it. It was my first time here and I was there for a business lunch. I had the swordfish special which was delicious. It's pricey but you're right in the middle of the harbor so you can't... More

Great day, great scenery, and very nice patio to dine and enjoy. The BLT salad is excellent, but just one of many nice entries. The sandwiches and cheeseburger are great. Eric our server worked hard to make sure we were well supplied at all times.

My husband stopped by for appetizers after taking a whale watching cruise. We sat al fresco; the view was very nice. We were seated right away. Our waitress Chanelle was very attentive and friendly. We ordered a martini, a beer, nachos, and eye poke. Total price without tip was 54 dollars. Servings of food are large. This is a very... More

We visited the Wind & Sea restaurant on 30th December, exactly 1 year from our last visit, and were pleased to see that the experience had not diminished from the last occasion. Seating and service is swift and courteous, and the lunchtime menu extensive with a range of local ingredients. We chose a window table overlooking the harbour, though this... More

We were a group of 8 and they were very accommodating, even though we just popped in. We had a nice table outside. Service was great and food excellent. Was surprised how busy they were for an early dinner..

We went down to the Harbor since it was such a nice day. We walked around this restaurant and thought we would give it a try with great harbor views. figured they would have average food since they get a lot of walk in traffic. The prices are a bit high but you are paying for a great location with... More

Wind & Sea offers a Sunday Brunch buffet featuring both ready made and made to order items for a very reasonable price. Service was attentive and the food quite good. Made to order omelets are generous in size and the variety of condiments to include in the omelet seemed almost endless - a lot of choices! The ready made items... More

Was expecting fresh seafood but it was the same as what I can get in the freezer section of the grocery store back home. The service was nothing special. Way over priced. Nice view..

We dined at the wind and sea restaurant right after getting off the Catalina Express. We were pretty hungry and they were accommodating. We were seated promptly and brought water almost immediately. The waitress was polite and efficient. She was able to answer our questions about menu offerings. This establishment serves a lot of seafood, though there are are other... More
