“Great view from roof deck, average food at best”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

After Kathy's art class we were hankering for a drink by the water and perhaps an app or two. To our surprise we could not find a restaurant with outdoor seating. We walked down bearskin neck and saw two 'in the rough' places with no water view, then found this place.

It looked good and the hostess was super friendly. We signed up for a 15 minute wait that was only 20 minutes, not bad. Got seated at a nice table near the bar upstairs, overlooking the harbor. Great views of paddlers, sailboats, fishing boats, and recreational boaters moving in and about the dock area. Nice view of the jetty and people at the end of the neck.

Kathy ordered fish and chips and I got the lump crab salad. Honestly, Kathy's meal was tasteless. No thick crunchy piece of haddock it was a skinny piece of probably cod. The batter was seen but not tasted. The fries were soft and bland.

I had to ask for blue cheese dressing because the one that came with the salad was thousand island like. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. Kathy's raspberry lime Rickies were good. My harpoon IPA could have been colder.

We'd go back for apps and a drink, not a meal.

“Not the greatest for the price”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Nice view, but that's about it. The rice is nuked and not lots of choices. You are left hungry. Not the best seafood around, for sure.

“Just Ok”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

The best part about this restaurant is the view and sitting outside on the deck area. I believe it's the only restaurant in BearsNeck that has this roof deck type of seating for dinner. The service is good but, the food is just mediocre. I have eaten here a bunch of times over the years and I keep going back to see if anything changes and nothing has. It's great for cocktails but, I do not recommend the food. Over priced and just ok.... always seems to be the way here! But, the view is great - so go for drinks and enjoy the water surrounding you and the views.!!!

“Excellent view!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We stopped in to 7th Wave for lunch on our way to Dogtown Common. We were seated right away and our order was taken quickly as well. We ordered the Tuna & Bacon sandwich and the Caprese (mozzarella, tomato & basil) sandwich which both came with fries. The food was good and reasonably priced. The upper level is an outside porch with great views of the ocean and Bear Skin Neck. Would be a great place to have a few drinks and watch the sun set!!

“Great outside ocean view”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

This restaurant is situated on the wharf, with a covered upper porch that overlooks the ocean. You really feel like you are on vacation. The food is good, mostly local seafood and sandwiches. Friendly service. I heard it's crazy busy in the summer, but in the fall it was easy to get a table.
