“Should be better”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This restaurant, in the lovely tourist town, should be better. Although almost on the beach, we had no view. Staff were adequate, but not friendly. Menu selections are limited, although the chowder was delicious. The prices were way too high for the quality of the food, presentation, and uniqueness. Would not return.

“Tried and true”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Excellent seafood, nice atmosphere with ocean views. polite wait staff. Large menu, good happy our prices. Good wine list, comfortable seats.

A little spendy but I like to know I am going to get good food and always do here.

I have been about 5 times and it is my favorite "family/dinner" place on the coast.

“Fresh food, gorgeous views.”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The views here are beautiful. The dungeness crab cocktail is so fresh and delicious. I loved that and also the Sleepy Monk coffee that the restaurant serves.

“Pub food not dinner”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Arrived at happy hour and decided to have a beverage and app. Both of those were very good and a nice selection. We then headed into the dining room for dinner. My friend ordered sole which was just okay. My issue was this restaurant charging $29 for a chicken breast that was advertised to be stuffed with spinach, Dunganess crab, asiago. It was hard to find any stuffing so I basically paid for a chicken breast and some mashed potatoes. It sounded so delicious on the menu but was anything but. I would go for light menu but not the dinner.
