The restaurant is just down the street from the Executive Inn, and they suggested it. It has a comfortable interior, is semi-casual, and the staff was helpful. 3 out of 4 of us had pasta dishes, two of them with seafood. I had a chef salad, which included the best artichoke hearts I've ever had! Prices were mostly reasonable.

I did a phone in order for pickup. The dining room was closed (even though I called at 8:00, and the website says they're open until 9:00), but the upstairs pub was able to fulfill my order. I had the blackened catfish, which was OK, but not as great as I've had elsewhere. But the portion was huge -- I... More

A nice view of the pier. Seafood Newberg and shrimp stuffed salmon was good. Bread was ok. Appetizer was in par. Nothing amazing but solidly good food.

Had dinner there for the first time with friends and found that the food and restaurant was great. They serve seafood mostly but have other things to enjoy. You can pull them up and view the menu to see if this works for you. They are right on the waterfront and a nice view of boats by the waterway. The... More

Great views of the water. Food was delicious though a bit pricey (My steak and beer was $50) Limited parking so had to park on the street. Service was fast and good. Hostess (what's an older male called? Hoster?) was kinda rude when my mother called to ask how long the wait was and if we needed a reservation so... More

We wandered in after being referred by a local hotel. It was within walking distance. The menu is huge which made me wonder what they specialized in. I ordered the jambalaya and my companion the seaweed salad. The service was excellent and the food tasty. It was a good find.

Not big but comfortable. Cozy in the evenings. The food have never been disappointing and the few of the boat is relaxing. Eating out on the deck in warm weather is fun. Not dressy during the day but some people like to dress for dates in the evening.

My wife had been there before for lunch and like it. This time we were with friends visiting from the east coast so we wanted somewhere with a local feel, water view and good menu, mid level $$. 6. We called for reservations, table for 6, no problem. Good food, full bar, plenty of choices. Good seafood, some fresh choices.... More

We ate downstairs in the dining room. Our service was amazing. I was impressed with the interesting variety of dishes on offer (including gluten free and vegan). We had a mix of entrees at our table and everyone was very pleased. I had two drinks and was impressed with how well they were made! I also enjoyed the history provided... More
