Met a friend for a drink and appetizers in the bar area. Outstanding Barkeepers! Appetizers were very good, bar type food. Atmosphere is pleasant and guests were friendly to mingle with.

We ate here with friends. The service was excellent and the food was very good. The waiter went out of her way to help my wife find a wine that she liked. I had an appetizer and a small plate that were very good. Everyone in our party were pleased with their experience here.

We enjoyed happy hour with appetizers and small plates. The Bar is active and well appointed. However it... More

We started with salads, some had the butter lettuce and the others the spring salad, which were perfect sizes. The entrees were delicious. 3 of us... More

Visited for dinner on Saturday, April 30. We haven't been to Breakwater in awhile, and my wife wanted to go there for dinner. We had reservations at 7, but arrived around 6 so we could enjoy a drink in the bar. The bar area is nice with many tables and seating. We had drinks and shared the fried shrimp appetizer.... More
