“Excellent”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

We have been coming here for years and never had a bad meal. Get there at 5 and you can get a seat on the water, and see a great sunset. Reservations are recommended. If you go off season they have a great fix price menu which is right off the regular menu, just slightly smaller portions which is fine since it includes desert. The fix price is a great value. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

“Disappointing, best part of our experience was the ocean view”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Atmosphere, service were great. Food was average at best. Lobster was rubbery & tough, lobster with pasta was bland, and contained very little lobster. Very pricey for less than average food. Four years ago the food was much better. Big disappointment. Would not recommend or return.

“A Fabulous Outdoor Restaurant by the Beach”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Sitting right by the beach, we shared four appetizers and drinks on a windy evening. Kids were playing with beach balls in the grassy courtyard area of the hotel; a one-man band filled the area with a mix of 60's rock and 90's country, with lots of people moving/dancing to the music, the atmosphere was festive, and the food was fine. On a windy day, keeping things on the table can be a challenge.

“Sneaky”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

If the waiter asks if you want a salad say no unless you really want one and want to pay the $13. They make it seem like it comes with your meal, but it doesn't! The staff is pretty snooty, but the food and location are great.
