We tried to eat here the night before Labor Day but found the wait too long so went back to Wilmington to eat. We came Labor Day evening and found we could get a table with an ocean view as soon as we arrived. We'd been told by the Wingate hotel that this was a great seafood restaurant and they were exactly right! Fresh, perfectly prepared and just what we were looking for. Very good service friendly but not too and very attentive to our needs. This is a restaurant we will recommend to friends and return to ourselves.

Great time! Doesn't smell like a sea food restaurant at all! Very romantic atmosphere. Only downfall is if you don't like seafood your only option is a steak.

Overall I was satisfied with my dinner; it wasn't exceptional but I didn't have any problems as some others indicate in their reviews. I had the wahoo special, which was nice. It being a rainy Tuesday evening, there wasn't a crowd. That being said, there were some service flaws that should be addressed systemically. Two of the five in my party were given lunch menus rather than dinner menus; when we pointed this out the waiter took them away but did not return with dinner menus, so we shared. Not really a big deal, but unprofessional and could be fixed by keeping them separate or checking before handing them out. Finally, one person in my party asked for a salad without eggs, but got eggs anyway and had to send it back due to a food allergy. Subpar based on how empty the place was.

Food extreamly over priced, staff under trained and there is nothing "Fresh" about this place! Everything is right off a food supplier truck from the fish to the sauces! After our lame appitizers we went some place else for our Anniversary Dinner!!! What a waste of space...such a beautiful location.
