Had the Turkey & Raspberry Panini and sweet potato fries. Both were excellant. Service from Brittany was great.

We came for lunch during the off season but on (what we were told was) an unusually busy Sunday. Still, the wait was minimal and our waiter was attentive and apologetic about any delay due to the crowd. First of all, the views ARE amazing....More

Warm and welcoming restaurant and staff. Flat Iron Steak and the Angry Shrimp were as good as ever. Reasonable prices and great views even in winter. Will return when we return in the spring.

Been coming here on and off for a decade. We come for lunch as dinner prices spike and doesn't seem a good value. We do enjoy the view when sitting on the deck. The staff has always been very friendly.
