“Delightful Lunch”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

When looking for a place to have lunch on the nautical mile in Freeport, we had stopped at one restaurant and found only table in use while the nautilus cafe next door was full so we decided this place must be good. We had a wonderful meal...I had the crab cakes and coconut shrimp and my husband had steak and shrimp. The service was excellent. If this restaurant was closer to home I would go there frequently.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Eating at a Freeport dining establishment on a wintry midweek night in December, one would expect that it would be empty so we were pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant nearly full. That boded well, and our dinner was very pleasant. The service (Laura) was top notch, and if you get there for the early bird prix fixe, there is a great deal to be had. For the price of an entree, you get soup, dessert and coffee or tea. The split pea soup eas quite good, the swordfish special was perfectly prepared and quite large, and the cedar plank salmon was also a hit. Desserts of oreo ice cream and carrot cake were great as well. my only complaint, which is a pet peeve, is the ample salad was served cold on a cold plate. Not too much to complain about. Definitely a keeper!

“Always a great meal”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

If you can get there for early bird you have more food than you could possibly eat. Soup, salad entree, and dessert for one price oh my! The tables are really close but the food is fresh and delicious. I love the warm banana bread and the cold crisp,salad with choice of dressing. The seafood is well prepared and tasty. We try to go a few times a year when we are in the mood for excellent seafood!

“Never made it into the restaurant”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

This is the strangest review I have ever posted. I have no idea of the quality of the food or the ambiance as we never made into the restaurant. As we tried to valet the car, the Valet starting screaming about "move the car". He was surly and abusive. We called the restaurant to tell them we were canceling and informed them of the reason and they just didn't care.
