We remember the Engleside from many years ago when we used to stay there and it had a coffee shop. Since our son and daughter in law went there for the sushi menu last year and enjoyed it, we decided to go there last week. We agree with the previous reviewers in many ways. The room is dark and certainly not appearing as a beach restaurant unlike its competition. Although the food is good, it does not really fit into the ambience of the town. This detracted from the atmosphere that we expected and left us debating how to rate it. In another place it might rate as more than average, but as it stands it lacks the things to make it deserve a higher rating.

We went because it looked nice, quiet, reserved.....it was anything but. The service was friendly but the atmosphere was terrible. Two large parties of drunks hootin and hollerin, cacklin. It was really a poor choice. The food is overpriced and very much like wedding hall food. The calamari tasted awful, just like plain, dry cornmeal flour, gross. I asked for my chicken well done and waitress said no problem....came out completely raw in the middle. Waste of money. There really is no decent place to eat on this island and many people we talk to agree.

My older married kids love ordering from here late at night. I think the breakfast is decent, not worth waiting an hour or more in line though.

We were hesitant to go here because we thought it would be too "old-timey." While we were right about the atmosphere, the food was actually quiet good and our server was excellent. The dining room was clean and updated, but too dark and closed in for a shore venue. Put in some large windows and brighten it up and you've got a winner here. One person in our party enjoyed the prime rib, another the panko-encrusted scallops, and another a sea bass special. We were all very pleased with our dinner and would go back.
