Great ocean views but uninspired food. The lobster roll was good, though a bit small for the price; fries looked and tasted as if cooked over and over. The fish tacos were a major disappointment. Three identical tacos were served instead of three different fish...More

Phenomenal food, service, and ambience. We dined upstairs on the outside deck which was really enjoyable. Crab cakes were delicious. Recommend MC’s highly.

Loved the dining room with a great ocean view. The half dozen oysters for $25.50 was jaw dropping but I had them anyway. Baked swordfish was excellent and the drinks and dessert were also very good. Service was slow but pleasant. This is a quiet,...More
