Fantastic food, nice atmosphere, excellent service. My seafood casserole was amazing!. Full of 4 different fish, all was cooked perfectly, over pasta in a cream sauce and portion was huge. This is a meal I won’t forget. In my group we shared an appetizer of...fried calamari served over a bed of greens—large portion and not greasy. A swordfish entree, thick piece cooked perfectly and entree of broiled scallops. We shared key lime pie that was so good and I am not usually a fan of key lime pie. The desserts are $12 but WORTH it. This dessert was a mini-pie, perfect for sharing between 3-4 people. Most desserts are made in-house.More

We went on Labor Day and had to wait quite a long time as they were very busy. Meal was very good, my wife had parm encrusted haddock, and I had pan seared scallops. We started with bang bang shrimp. The portion was huge, enough...for four as an appetizer.....perfectly cooked and spiced. Excellent! My wife's haddock was excellent (I had some too) and the scallops and risoto were to die for. On our second trip my wife had fish tacos, which she said were the best tacos she'd ever had. My mexican haddock was fine. Wished I'd gotten the parm encrusted. Prices I thought were decent for a resort restaurant right on the harbor with a view. Good wait staff.....friendly and helpful. Off street parking. Highly recommend.More

Great food great service. Stephanie was amazing . Probably the best server on staff. Food was great and the atmosphere was amazing. The only bad thing was the hostess. She was seating us and we decided to actually sit in the deck she rolled her...eyes and was upset with our choice . Everything else was great . Definitely be back again and see Stephanie!More

Visited based on the reviews. Amazing view, wonderful service, and relaxed atmosphere. The food was less than average. Lobster Mac and cheese was bland and the lobster tough and chewy. My son left most of that $30 dish on his plate. Ribs weren’t good and...the fish was super bland. Very disappointing. The $10 cookie sundae was amazing though - 4 of us split it and still couldn’t finish it.More

What we were told was that they had changed the menu for the summer, with less choices, however it never changed back in the fall. We expressed our displeasure to the hostess who said she would pass it on.
