But it us worth a second chance. The room itself is small but appealing. The wait staff was very good as was the food. My one complaint is the small number of choices available on the night we visited. I think there were 7 or 8 entrees on the menu including specials.

Walked over to this upscale byob from the Spring Lake Inn, block and a half away. Good service, excellent swordfish and salmon. BYO is a plus, in this case. Little tightly packed. Will definitely go back.

This not just a restaurant, which there are many of in the area – this is an establishment of fine dining. The flavor combos were obviously well thought out by a consummate chef.... More

We visited for our anniversary. The service was rushed and the food over cooked. Steak medium rare was served well done. Waitress was in a continual hurray, with the waitress taking orders, serviving and being her own bus boy. We passed on dessert and coffee and left after the entree.

My wife and I were celebrating our 31st anniversary. Located adjacent to a classic Victorian inn, we had tried visiting a few years back and it was closed. Think it was on a Monday. We were greeted by the hostess and seated right away. Our server, Michael, was quite personable and very attentive. My wife ordered the oysters appetizer. I... More

We enjoyed a family dinner at Whispers. The service was excellent and the food was incredible. We had the 1 ½ Lb. Maine Lobster, which was taken completely out of the shell, placed in a crispy spring roll basket over a Jumbo Lump Crab Cake and Spinach, Drizzled with Saffron Beurre Blanc - AMAZING!
