“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

Beautiful setting with outdoor seating. Food was delicious and after we finished the chef came out to greet everyone and offered us to a complimentary dessert of our choice (creme brulle or chocolate lava cake). We chose the creme brulle and it was great! Def recommend this place for a group or private outing

“Right on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Went there for dinner. Had an outside table; with portable heater, which made it quite comfortable. I got the chefs menu which consisted of an appetizer, entree and desert. It's a decent value with a variety of choices. The other three in my party all chose individual entrees; for the most part they were happy with their selections.
The only real negative was the service; had to constantly ask for refills and they didn't clear plates. It wasn't that they were busy with other customers either; we went after the diner rush.
If you decide to go, base your choice more on wanting to dine outside with a nice beach view that way you won't be disappointed if the service is not great or it seems a little pricey.
Also, valet parking is $4, worth it if they are busy because it is a small parking lot.

“Great atmosphere, great service”

Loved the cheese plate with fruit and veggies. Service was swift and friendly. We stopped in for cocktails and lunch on a busy Saturday afternoon and we treated to good service and a refreshing cocktail.

“Margaritas and seafood salads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

a lunch time sandwich turned into a lunch time treat at the Poseidon. The place we planned to eat was full and this restaurant was just down the hill so we thought we'd chance it. The table we were given was one foot from the beach and the food and drinks on offer were tasty, filling and very reasonably priced. We ended up sitting for almost two hours and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I'd recommend this venue to anyone. Excellent.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We had a lunch at Poseidon which was very good. The draw for me was the wonderful setting on the beach with both inside and outside seating. It was just delightful.
