Intimate restaurant with outstanding views and excellent food. The view is so captivating you may not want to leave. That's OK, stay and enjoy dessert.

The Nautical Inn has amazing views. Food is good. Prices are avarage. Not ideal for large families. The bar used to have "happy hour" with excellent prices for or'deurves along with a talented piano player.

A treat for the eyes and warm friendly service. Oh! And good food. Sunset, plank Salmon and a nice glass of wine is there anything better?

I have been a couple of times. The location is far and away the best in Del Norte and Curry Counties. The restaurant has a lovely ambience. The food is overpriced for the quality. It's certainly not bad, but it's not that good either. My...More
