An excellent meal of local seafood. A warm welcoming atmosphere. It was convenient to our stay at Ocean House. it was still open after the summer season. A real locals place.

We were hungry and thirsty after a walk on the beach, and saw two signs, one reading "tea room", the other "wine and cocktails" I'm not sure if there's actually a tea room, but there is a bar, and a very well stocked one, even if the sign over it reads "Temperance". I had seared tuna and my wife had... More

The place is clean and always busy but the staff makes it feel seamless, attention to detail and precise. The food is delicious and fresh and the presentation always reminds me of a Parisian brasserie. Special mention to the bartenders who athough very busy and smiling and helpful and fast. Cocktails are different than other restaurant and if you need... More

This restaurant was recommended for lunch but we decided to visit later in the day. Walked there from Ocean House and it made for the perfect evening. Had the spicy flaked cod appetizer---a wonderful dip-your-bread-to-get-the -last-drop way to start your meal. A Cosmopolitan was delivered icy cold a tangy--yum. The shrimp cocktail was as anticipated with large, crunchy-fresh shrimp. Dining... More

Docked in Watch Hill for the night and tried Olympia Tea Room for dinner. They do not take reservations and arrived at about 8 and the wait for the table was about 45 minutes. Bar was jammed but after a while we were able to get seats and have a drink. Very comfortable place overall although the noise level was... More

They have wonderful desserts., one in particular is the Avondale Swan However, I went there Monday with my family for dessert, and they would not serve us! They said lunch only. I could see if they... More

A nice comfortable feel to this place, much more than a "tea room", with outside and inside seating available. It's always busy and we had to wait a reasonable 15 minutes +/- for a dinner table. They have a nice bar at one end of the restaurant, but there were no seats available, so we were squeezed into the limited... More
