Great location to have breakfast lunch or Happy Hour. Food has been very good everytime we have eaten her. Especially like the outdoor patio sitting in the summer.

This was my first time to dine off the menu at this venue. There was an excellent selection of entrees from both the land and the sea. Everything sounded delicious and our very amiable server, Adam, ably answered all our questions and assisted us in making our choices. Because so many dishes appealed to us, we did what any long...

Lovely place, view of the bay, very personal service. This was their Christmas Lunch Buffet, at $40 a head I thought it was a bit steep but it was well worth it. Food was well prepared, and well presented. Diners were well managed so there were no long lines. Prime rib and crab legs OMG. Be there next year!

My wife and I decided to have a quite light meal on Christmas Eve for just the two of us. Without a reservation, we went to the the Lighthouse Lounge and ordered from the Lounge Menu.

Dinner was fabulous. The seafood risotto was better than mine. loaded with fresh salmon, shrimp and scallops. The burgers were also amazing. Mark, our server was personable and so nice! Erin in the bar went above and beyond making sure the kitchen fed us even though we were coming in late! Very impressed!

We had not visited this restaurant for quite some years thus decided to come for a quiet mid-week luncheon and were not disappointed. There were only 4 tables occupied during our entire lunch period, with a service staff of 2.

This restaurant has very nice views. Service was outstanding. We had the halibut and unfortunately it came undercooked. The waitress was great about taking it back. Of course when we got it back it was overcooked. Meal was a bit pricey for the size of helping
