This place was fantastic when operated by it's former husband and wife team. New chef and ownership are now in place. I have to rate it as very average. Although most of the staff is the same, the food is not. I ordered clam chowder and oysters Rockefeller, and my wife ordered the seafood coquille. I spent thirty years in Seattle, so I know good chowder -this chowder was mostly potatoes which some people like, but the clams were sparce. I prefer more chowder and clams. If you like a lot of potatoes, this is for you. The oysters in the Rockefelter were tiny, laced in a watery hollendaise sauce with a lot of spinach spread over the top. It was not a good interpretation of the original recipie. My wife's coquille was very heavy and tasted very bland. The location is great, right off Atlantic Avenue, but the parking is very difficult and sparce. The restaurant is in dire need of a thorough cleaning and needs painting and refreshing. The whole place gives the feeling of not being sanitary. Outside seating is great with a wonderful view of the intercoastal waterway. The menu looks great, but the food is lacking in quality. Service was excellent. Hopefully the place will get a facelift and the chef will finally reach her stride. With so many fantastic restaurants in the area, I would look elsewhere before eating here again.
Would we go back? Not until we read that it has been refurbished.
