It would be sad if this is the best Girabaldi has to offer. Zero atmosphere. The view is nice, but one you can get at other locations...for free. Let's begin with food: limited options, over priced, not quality. Appetizer: good-oyster shooters oyster & half shells from Washington; bread--nice texture but bland. Sides: clam chowder was more like potato chowder. Two pieces of clam were in the entire bowl. Caesar salad was good, just a little heavy on the dressing. Garlic & herb potatoes were good. Main dish:16oz sirloin- was not cooked correctly. Had to send it back. Tough! As my husband said "steak was thick, but so is shoe leather." Bland in flavor. Husband had rib eye. Tough has well. Lacking flavor. Not cooked properly. Cook seemed to lack knowledge on proper cooking technique. The waitress was like a stalker. Watching from around the corner. It was a little creepy. When she brought the check she stood their watching us get the cash. Not professional at all. Not a great evening and WAY overpriced for the quality!

At first I wasn't sure I was going to like this place since the management was having a meeting and I seemed to interrupt it, but the waitress finally came out and things improved. The view was awesome, looking out over the inlet and the food was exceptional. As more people poured in the atmosphere improved and it turned out to be a nice meal.

Had great seating panoramic view of the bay which was beautiful. Waitress friendly and helpful liked everything but the French fries. They were greasy and clumped together. I'd rate this 3.5 star. Kinda spartan interior but clean.

Decided to give these guys a try as it looked like they had a decent water view. That was about all they had. We walked into what appeared to be a diner, with a view. Then we got the menu's! Wow! A decent view is no excuse for highway robbery. $25-30 dinners and average of $15 appetizers. This was diner dining at fine dining prices. We left and took our business elsewhere.
