I just don't expect much from the restaurants at the shore. All cater to huge crowds most of whom want fast service over quality food. My two star rating takes that into account - if this restaurant was in Philly it would be no stars and closed. I went there for breakfast and had the special - two eggs, home... More

The service is extremely S-L-O-W. The place is crowded with tables, and there's little room to walk. The food was overpriced and tasteless. I do not recommend this restaurant. We were extremely disappointed.

All four of the people in my party raved about our dishes.The food was fresh and delicious. The portions were a good size as well which was important for my husband who has a big appetite! Our waitress was amazing as well!

Went here after checking out if our rental for breakfast. Food and service were great. Prices were good for breakfast in a resort area. Would have given a higher rating but the bathroom was so dirty. That it really lowered our feelings of the restaurant.

We have been going here for years and our only complaint is that the meals are so good and so filling that we've only had enough "room" left for dessert once. We have had a wide variety of the food- pizza, stromboli, calimari, wedding soup, salad, a yummy appetizer of garlic paste and pita bread whose name escapes me and... More

Todays experiment in seafood was Seafood Diavlo with scallops, shrimp, lump crab meat and clams in a spicy tomato sauce served over Linquini spaghetti. Bread was quickly brought to my table with a small dish of olive oil infused with herbs. One roll and two pieces of flat bread. Tasted all the same- bland, white flour, blah. When dinner arrived,...

when we visit Stone Harbor, we love to explore by walking the town and then deciding where to eat. We found the Italian Garden on our last night in town and were very pleasantly surprised. We got seated immediately and the waitress brought us our drinks very quickly. A nice menu of a variety of Italian items from which I... More

After being ignored by our waitress for close to a half hour a busboy came over and got our order. Our food was undercooked and we told the owner how horrible our service was but she did not care whatsoever. Also, drink refills are not free. This place is not worth the visit. Very upset about the service.

A little crammed with about 10 booths no tables. I had a bad grilled cheese with undercooked fries. But everyone else in my family enjoyed it! While the service was exceptional a decent place. While waiting for our food our waitress brought out some off the desserts very very good!
