We went to The Grill for my nieces birthday dinner tonight. The setting is lovely but that's all that this restaurant has going for it. We were only one of three tables occupied and still had terrible service. The corn chowder was good however the serving equates to about a quarter cup for $14, the crab balls and calamari were...

Beautiful and trendy atmosphere, with water and yacht views. Open air dining. Nice menu, with really delicious food. If you're put off by snooty show- offy people this is not your place. If you can, ignore them, and enjoy the food and the view. Our server was very sweet but was not trained at all. She tried her best. I... More

First time visit did not disappoint! Started with the Crab & Corn Chowder which was delicious. the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna was awesome. Top it off with the location and it's now at the top of my list for the next visit.

Stopped by for a late dinner with friends; decided to splurge on a caviar plate and it blew us away! Added some raw bar sautéed lobster and a steak and it was an unbelievable meal! The music was great; so was the dancing after dinner. Great crowd, great view, great service and excellent food!

This was one of two waterfront fine dining restaurants we ate at and we much preferred the service and the food at The Moorings. This one is pretentious and all about the scene and less about the food. Just go for the water view and drinks and over- the- top- trendy servers and waitstaff and decor, inside and out, but...

I've tried to give this restaurant chance after chance....the sunset view is its only saving grace. Overpriced food/drinks and staff beyond undertrained--they have no idea what to do when guests arrive. The hosts/hostesses look like they just graduated high school and have just purchased a new suit for the first time in their life....not sure why two of the hosts... More

VERY snooty (even the teenage waitresses serving the outside bar have attitude) and very expensive. Get over it, pull out the credit card, and sit for a while to enjoy the good life. Terrific food (EVERYTHING on the menu is good), outstanding and carefully-chosen wine selection. Jeff and Cindy the Bartenders are a class act. The view outside is only... More

We just happened to fall upon this place for a late lunch. My husband and I shared the seafood tower that was amazing. The baby gem salad with buttermilk blue cheese dressing was amazing. My husband had the crab corn chowder which was good but could have been hotter. Service was just ok. I think our waitress was not very... More
