I read all of the reviews and was not sure what to expect. Will it be overpriced? Will the owner & staff be rude? Will the food be as good as they say?
To my pleasant surprise, the food was very delicious! No "greasy stink" here! The menu had wonderful selections that were healthfully prepared. For starters, I had the seafood salad which was excellent. My husband had the Octopus which was nice (although it had a seasoning neither of us liked). My son had a shrimp cocktail and loved it (I tasted his cocktail sauce and it was amazing - best I ever had). For our main course, my husband had the crab cakes which were very nice and fresh. I had a half lobster and side of Quinoa & veg - loved it! My son had the gnocchi and said it was so-so. We tasted it and liked it very much. My daughter was a bit more finicky so the kitchen prepared a special order of pasta in a butter sauce - she loved it. So yes, the food is excellent!
When the owner came to our table, I had my back up ready for attitude. There was none! In fact, she was very pleasant. And given it was my birthday, she generously comped our yummy chocolate Pavlova. (no, this did not influence my opinion).
When the bill came I was expecting to have to wash some dishes. Last year we had a HORRIBLE meal at Ship Bottom Shellfish that cost about $160 for our family of 4. Given the reviews for Black Eye Susan's said it was expensive, I brought $300 to be safe. The food was so yummy, I was sure we were going to be short on cash. Incredibly, the bill came and it was only $160. We were shocked! The prices are very reasonable!
We will definitely go back again! And I would highly recommend it to anyone.
