The view is stunning. The staff was nice. The food was a complete disappointment for the prices. There was absolutely no flair or memorable flavor in the meals presented. Can't say we'll ever go there again.

I'm happy recommendations led you to our restaurant, but I'm disappointed you didn't experience the same kind of culinary delight we're used to hearing from our guests. I apologize we had run out of our trout special as you were arriving -- it's definitely a sought-after contender on our menu, and hopefully some time you'll get a chance to try... More

$100 lunch for four sandwiches (including tip) is expensive. Lobster roll was good as was the tomato soup grilled cheese. The "Kobe" hamburger at $21 was dry and over cooked. Service was attentive but not especially friendly. Still is $ is not a concern worth a stop. Great views here of the cove. Parking can be a challenge

I'm glad to hear you like the view, but I'm disappointed you felt our Kobe burger fell short. I understand the pricing can seem a little high compared to your typical surf and turf spot, but please know our recipes seek to create a culinary experience, as they source the freshest, local ingredients for each dish.

I was there earlier today with my husband and daughter. The view was fantastic. The chowder was the best I ever had. I even took another portion of chowder at the end instead of desert. Lobsters are not in the menu but they had it and made for us steamed. Delicious!!! I took is with salad, it was very good.... More
