“Love the Oysters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

The Newcomers Men had their luncheon at Thalassa and I ordered the fried Oysters and Seafood Chowder. Both were excellent. Everyone seems to enjoy their lunch as several had the special and others a variety of sandwiches. The server was excellent. With some help they looked after 17 of us in a very timely manner. The food was hot and very good.

“Very good overall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

My husband and I just ate here for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. We thought it was going to be a stuffy super fancy old people only type of establishment and we have a one year old and are well below the age of 60. The waitress was very accommodating, informative, menu was well laid out and had everything from chicken tenders to mango chutney glazed chicken. Portions were excellent and food was very tasty. Also they have a fantastic Sunday brunch from 9-1pm for $11.95 with a wide assortment of breakfast eats. I would definitely this restaurant and can't wait to bring my family and friends

“Good place after golf”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

The food is good, the service is very slow. It can take up an hour to get your meal after ordering even though the place is not busy. If you are just going for a drink, go to the bar - don't wait for service at your table.

“handy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

have had appys, and dinner here over the last year, after a golf game. the service can be spotty as can the food. as we've just enjoyed a good time on the golf course it didn't really matter. dinner here last week was good, fish and chips and caesar salad were what the 4 of us choose. lots of light due to the high ceilings. they need a decorator! good spot for a cider on the patio, sitting in the sun and looking out towards the ocean.
