“great food but prices on the upside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

we went there last minute with a group of 9. We called and asked if there would be a wait and they said no problem. When we arrived there were no problems getting in the door even for a Saturday night. The place was pretty empty.
We were seated in the back room. The place is looking a little dated and there was dust on some of the areas of the room. Don't know if this area had been used much. Everything was nice but not over the top. All of the food choices were cooked very well and everything came out when it was supposed too. It's on the high side for prices with most entrees starting at about $24.
I'd go back for a couple if maybe we could be seated near the window or on the patio for a special occasion.

“"Educational" lunch tunes ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

..that would've made a longshoreman "pause", open minded but it was crass, better for a night time "club setting"...
Had the mussels, too salty but good...
Anyone else turned off by a servers chipped, gross red nail polish? A great manicure goes a long way and a "bad" one is awful, shouldn't be allowed by management if staff can't manage their personal hygiene, yuck.

“Meeting expectations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Having been at this restauarnt before , we had high expectations. We were not disappointed: the food and the service were excellent. The food was attractively presented and prepared delicious. The service was prompt , professional, and friendly. Overall, pricey, especially the wine and the bar drinks. I am sure we will be back as you can count on getting your money's worth

“Over priced and poor quality.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

First of all I cannot complain about the service, we were greeted well and the server payed attention to our needs, I just feel sorry for them having to serve the food they do.
Three of our group decided to share the mussels for a starter, it was a main course priced at $23.99, at this price for a bowl of mussels we thought it would be adequate, we were mistaken.
The mussels were the smallest i have ever experienced and there was only 23 of them, over $1.00 a mussel, wow, the server thought this was amusing.
My main course was the Fish (Halibut) and Chips, the chips were soggy and the fish very much pre battered and not at all crispy, I would even question the fact that is was Halibut. A fish orientated restaurant that cannot even get fish and chips right.
On my return from the wash room I glanced into the kitchen, lets just say i wish i hadn't.
Unfortunately this I feel is a restaurant that relies on its location next to a marina and convenient dining for the boaters rather than the quality of food. Extremely disappointed.

“Good seafood.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Overall this restaurant was very good, however a bit overpriced. Although they overcooked my wife's halibut, when she returned it they didn't ask any questions, gave her a salad in the meantime, and fired a new fish perfectly. My seafood pasta dish was fantastic and the Thai crab cakes starters were great. We sat on the patio overlooking the marina and it was fantastic. Would return again.
