This place really verifies that you cannot judge a book by its cover. From the outside it looks like a real dump The inside is a whole different story. The inside is a very eclectic atmosphere. Service is excellent the food is excellent. Highly recommend that you try this place

We had an enjoyable night on a quiet evening with lots of attention and freebies from the owner. However the food needed seasoning and I am a little surprised at all the 5 star reviews and ranking compared to other restaurants in area

Al is amazing and makes you feel so at home in his restaurant, like you've been coming there for years even if it's your first visit (like it was for me and John). Chris was such a friendly and informative server - smiled and helped the whole time without hovering. Will definitely go back for another easy date night or... More

Friday evening is the night that several couples get together and try different restaurants. Tonight we went to the New England Moorings. The service and food was excellent. I had the dinner special which I felt was properly priced at $21.00 which was 8oz filet of beef, 6 grilled shrimp, mixed vegetables, cole slaw, and roasted red potatoes. VERY VERY... More

This has been one of my favorite restaurant experiences ever. I've lived in many states and been to hundreds of cities and have never received the type of hospitality. Chris was incredibly nice and very helpful. The owner was very inviting and took the time to welcome us to the restaurant. I definitely recommend New England Moorings to everyone that... More

The Atomosphere is Fun, Friendly, and Calm. It is definitely one of those restaurants you come as a customer and leave as a friend. There will be a 10 dollar charge for putting up with your attitude just one of the funny signs you may seen hidden within its walls. Its dimly lit by Christmas and rope lighting with walls... More

Fairly poor service, fair food, the only good was the desert. Ooverpriced for the quality of food and atmosphere of sitting adjacent to a parking lot.

Read reviews on New England Moorings in Cape Coral Florida. They are spot on , Outside when you pull up it looks like a small little local dive that needs a few coats of paint and a new door . Don't let that fool you it is very roomy and comfortable they have a airconditioned inside and a outside patio... More

The following are all the adjectives that come to mind about the Moorings: Delicious, quirky, inexpensive, fresh, original and memorable. Boy, am I glad we ventured to this restaurant. I have never, underline never met a staff and chef who worked so hard to please and then surpass all reasonable expectations. From the minute, we were seated, our server Chris... More

A few lines to introduce myself. My name is Al Whelan, I am from Boston and worked at a famous "waterfront dive" known as Kelly's Landing. A seafood business in a Catholic community with lines down the street, literally. I worked there for five summers and enjoyed every minute of it. My first date with the counter girl (she couldn't resist a man in a paper hat), my first kiss, etc. One rule was demanded, cooking with clean oil! In those days it was lard! Today we use canola oil both on the grill side and on the fry side... Most of our dinners are on the grill side. Fish shrimp, scallops, steaks, ribs, chicken and pork round off our menu. Our Irish Connoli is like a little piece of heaven and our homemade bread pudding is to die for. Both topped off with sweet whipped cream. We've added a 6000 square foot patio surrounded by trees. A truly private and romantic spot. Also some added features such as, a basketball cage, beer pong table and corn hole court.
