The menu and diners in the room made us feel like we were in Florida. The menu seemed to be tailored for an "older" diner which is the type of person in the dining room when we were there. All of the plates were tasty. We did not try any of their signature cocktails. Their frugal orientation was evident with... More

but I think you can do better when in the area. Not to say that I don't recommend however, Presentation of dishes was very nice, portions more than adequate but I can't say that any of the dishes wowed us. In fact, some of the dishes were somewhat bland for our taste. No issues with service, but we just left... More

We slipped into the bar on a Saturday night and it was--perfectly fine. There were fewer tapas options than we had hoped but the ones we chose were OK. Staff, setting and food were pleasant enough. A little more pizzazz wouldn't hurt but this is a solid option.

The restaurant is nicely decorated and has a lovely ambience. The food is quite good. The raspberry and brie spring rolls were tasty, though might have benefited from a bit more raspberry. The veal saltimbocca was excellent, and the accompanying scalloped potatoes were scrumptious. The bread is decent, though not outstanding. Our server, Maria, was attentive and delightful. Every dinner... More

My wife and I had brunch at the Academy Ocean Grille - and it was very good. My wife had the Eggs Benedict and said the muffin was crisply grilled. She added that the Canadian bacon was carmelized nicely but that the hollandaise needed a bit more lemon. I had the French Toast which was described as having a house-made... More

swordfish and seafood fra Diablo were fresh and flavorful. Appetizers were outstanding. Post tickets, wings and chowdah were particularly good.

We reserved at the Academy for an early dinner before seeing 'A Chorus Line'. The food was good and the portions were large - we probably should have skipped the chowder starter!! It is popular and by the time we left it was full.

Back from Florida and our first dinner out is AOG. Just wonderful. For the appetizer we tried the Spring Rolls, Brie with raspberry and served with a key lime dip. We both. enjoyed our entrees, the Veal Saltimbocca for me and the fish special for my wife. Service by Nicole was just right! A truly enjoyable evening.
