Nice spot on the deck watching boats go by. Great service. Great food. Great drinks. Priced right for the quality. No doubt we'll be going back.

Inconsistent is the best thing I can say about the food here. After a disappointing visit earlier in the year, we went back this summer and had a good meal. So, thinking things had improved, we went back last month and unfortunately, we had the worst meal yet. The Foie Gras was so undercooked (and possibly bad), that it actually made us sick. Two orders of the same dish were prepared differently and the mushrooms that came with the pork chop were seared on the outside but raw on the inside. This place is screaming for a quality chef and sous chef who can ensure all food comes out properly every time. Even the desserts were not great, they seemed like packaged or previously frozen cakes, etc. Other than a great location, there is not much to recommend here.

My husband & I had an excellent dinner here last night. I had the seared haddock over orzo that was fresh,light & delicious. My husband had the boulibais which he said was awesome. We took flourless chocolate cake for home which was Big & hit the spot.The entrees were large enough & priced normal. The view is spectacular. Firepits outside add a lot of character. Best dinner we've had out in a long time!

3 scallops is not a dinner. Nothing inspiring about the flavor or presentation. The view is wonderful. Lemon dessert was very lemony. Would have been better warm and with one small teaspoon of blueberries instead of a quart of blueberry sauce. Less is more.

Great place for drinks and a view, but the service was extremely poor. We had reservations for 6pm and a show at 7:30. The deck was pretty much full but the inside dining area was maybe 30% full at best. Our menu and waitress arrived at 6:25, already slightly annoyed. We let her know about our show and said it would be "no problem". Bread and drinks took another 15 minutes at least. Our food arrived WITH the check at 7:10...Over an HOUR after we sat down. We almost left money for the drinks and walked out. We are in five minutes and rushed out. It was an overall awful experience that ruined out evening because we were so rushed. That was our anniversary dinner...
