We didn't make a reservation which meant that we sat in the adirondack chairs at the top of the hill for 20 minutes or so with a glass of wine, very relaxing. We lucked out and were seated at the corner of the outdoor dining area which meant we had a beautiful view of the sunset along with a great view of Old Harbor and the Atlantic. There was a nice breeze to keep us cool during dinner. The service proved to be outstanding and the food was fantastic! The scallops were done just right.
