Wow...this is a great stop. We didn't think there was a seat in the place that didn't have a view of the ocean. The service was great - very friendly and efficient - the food was fabulous. My hubby joked he was going to "lick the plate clean" he enjoyed his meal so much. It's not the least expensive place in town but well worth the price for a fine quality meal.

If it weren't for the $50.00 gift coupon that we used, it would have been a very disappointing experience. The Caesar salads were limp and overdressed and they used packaged croutons. The Tuscan Ribeye was shrouded in a funny tasting Gorgonzola 'crust' and then finished with a Balsamic Glaze. It was kind of ok, but the meat itself had no flavor. The Linguini Scampi was ok, although the shrimp were really overcooked and not at all succulent. The pasta was homemade and was nicely cooked, but the overall dish just lacked any kind of pizzaz. Service was slow. The waiter overlooked quite a few things, like drinks requested WITH dinner. The layout of the facility is odd and a bit dated. Lot's of funky pastels and outdated furniture and lighting fixtures. Don't bother asking for a window seat when you make your reservation; they'll tell you ok, then not follow through.
We probably will be reluctant to go back.

Slightly deceiving from outside, but once inside it was very nice. Good food and view was pleasant. Did not have reservation [Presidents day], but reservationist was accomidating. We like to eat early, so had a nice table even though not at a window, still could see the ocean.
