We are locals and have been here numerous times for lunch and dinner. We bring lots of house guests here. I feel the menu choices have changed quite a bit. Many of the choices included hot spicy ingredients. This was mentioned sometimes but not always on the menu. Our guest could not eat his chicken beast dinner and returned it... More

Eaten there several times and always been good. Last time they had a special priced promotional menu. Very good. Our server was excellent and guided us to the best wine selections. Outdoor patio has been renovated and expanded. Can't seem to leave that place without buying something in the gift shop!

Lovely little outdoor dining bistro on the water. Staff is polite, professional, and friendly. Our server Brooks was efficient and helpful. Co-owner Jill works as hard as her staff to make sure guests are comfortable and happy. Live music was tasteful and well performed. Beer selection will please the most discerning ale aficionados. But the highlight is the outstanding food!... More

The plates come out so good looking here that you don't even want to touch it! Wine selection is immense, and the atmosphere matches the elegance of the food and drinks.

I feel a little like we visited a different restaurant to the one everyone else has written about, as our experience wasn't amazing and the great reviews on here were why visited. Bit of a mix up on table booking when we arrived was unfortunate but place had real buzzing atmosphere. The food was the dissapointment for us - our... More

My family and I went to the bistro at a friend's recommendation and what a treat! Local musician played softly in the background and the view was wonderful. Our appetizers were great and I especially liked the fish collar app...awesome!

On first glance this may appear to be a somewhat rough and ready establishment. Parking is ad hoc, it sits alongside an open dock and there appears to be an old trailer parked alongside the restaurant building. Once seated, however, the truth becomes evident. great food, good menu, good wine and a great atmosphere.

The food here is consistently the best I've had in the area. Even a simple sounding salad turns out to pleasantly surprise you with unexpected flavors. Highly recommended.

We went here for our anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. A local recommended it so we knew it would be good. The food was incredible. The fish was some of the freshest I ever had. Try the ahi tuna and the snapper over grits. You will definitely come back for more. There is a good drink menu but only... More
