This restaurant had been recommended to us by friends. But I guess one should be careful about recommending a restaurant based on a single visit. The restaurant pretends to provide fine dining, but the staff have not been trained accordingly. The food was somewhat bland and the pace of service was erratic.
The wine list is quite limited, and the house wine is one notch above box wine. The decore needs an overhaul.

We were recommended this by the owners of the Buccaneer Inn and they did not steer us wrong. The view and location are great and the food and service was very good!

My wife and I had the pleasure of enjoying a fine dinner in very pleasant surroundings at Beefeaters this February (2012). My wife had one of the evening's specials and I ordered from the dinner menu - we thought this was a better way to judge the food. Both of us were very happy with our orders, even exchanging small morsels to compare our opinions. Both meals were fish, a halibut and a snapper, served with well-prepared vegetables. The restaurant is located adjacent to a marina and overlooks Newcastle Island - this provides a nautical atmosphere while enjoying the meal (try to get a window table). Prices are reasonable, service is excellent, table settings are attractive, bar is well stocked, and overall experience is a pleasure. This is our second visit to this restaurant and we highly recommend it.
