“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

We've eaten here twice this summer & have been pleased with the food. The first time we ordered shrimp cocktail, it was very fresh & delicious. My husband called it the best he ever had. We went 2 nights ago & ordered it again & we were disappointed, definitely not as fresh, very chewy & rubbery. not fresh enough & at $4.00 each they should be very fresh. First time we both ordered fish entrees & enjoyed them. Servers were great both times. Second visit I had a warm lobster roll it was good, but the portion of lobster was very skimpy. Warning, there is air conditioning that comes from the ceiling & circles the perimeter of the restaurant. Its freezing under these air conditioners. The staff said they'd turn it down, but we never noticed a difference & had to move our table twice. We saw other people putting on sweaters & wraps & complaining about the cold. Bring a jacket even if it is August!!!!

“LOVE IT!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Brian and his staff have a winner. The drinks at the bar are fantastic and the food is wonderful. Waitstaff great. From Kimmy at the raw bar explaining each type of oyster in detail to dining on the patio to one of their special scotch or wine tasting dinners, everything is awesome!

“Great salads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Salads are big, tasty and filling. Beware of bread with large pieces of anise and or rosemary in it. You don't want to poke yourself.

“Terrible bar service this time.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

We've been before and the food has always been fantastic... but we met friends for drinks recently, and the service was awful. We sat at a table in the bar area, and waited FOREVER for service, were forgotten about several times by the server. Have a reservation, eat the food, but don't expect quick, warm service.
