My partner and I, traveling with his two teenagers, had this on our list of potential eating places during our one night stay in Seaside. After walking Boardwalk and seeing how crowded and expensive those restaurants were (not to mention witnessing some pretty poor service), we decided to head back toward our hotel, very close to this restaurant. Fortunately, it was open until ten, which in Seaside apparently counts as "late."
The kids were delighted by the clever, newspaper-like menus. The food was reasonably-priced, but, this being a tourist town, our expectations of the quality were low. We needn't have worried. While nothing mind-boggling, the food (Caesar salads, hot wings, fettucine alfredo) was very good, fresh, and well-prepared. The wings were standard and tasty, the Caesar was not overdressed, and the alfredo seemed to be made with real ingredients. The food showed up fast, and the service was excellent. (Thank you, Noel!)
The service, in fact, deserves a special mention. Noel did not just service our table, she made us feel tended to. She was an excellent server. (The young man who seated us was friendly and funny, as well, and checked on us during our meal.)
We came in less than an hour before closing and the place was about half empty. It was quiet enough for conversation, though perhaps a little dim for the adults' aging eyes. I appreciated being able to have a conversation during dinner.
Overall, this was a great dining experience in a setting (tourist town) that often lacks them.
