“This place should be in the top 5!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

We were there for Easter brunch. It is near the marina and airport. Excellent pizza, French toast, Dutch pancakes, bread, and service. Really exceptional. Large portions. The salad served four.

“Brunch....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Excellent brunch and wonderful view. Love the bread basket with roasted garlic and olive oil. We've been to this restaurant numerous times and never had a problem.

“We can't stay away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I spent 6 weeks in Port A. This became our go to place! The food is fantastic and the atmosphere unbeatable. It is like CHEERS meets Ruths Chris Steakhouse! We took friends here and they loved it. Bring lots of money but is worth it!

“Unexpected excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

We called on Valentines morning for dinner and got a reservation at around the time we wished. On arrival we were seated promptly. We told the server, Leslie, that it was our anniversary and she immediately brought us complimentary champagne! The menu and wine list were impressive. My wife ordered a spinach salad to begin with and Leslie quickly told us it was big enough for two. It was- large and delicious! My wife ordered Wahoo as her main course-(a firm white fish) and I ordered the bone-in filet. Leslie told us the owner also had a steak restsurant in Chicago and the steaks were good in this seashore town. Mine was extraordinary- cooked perfectly and very tender. We have dined all over the USA and Europe and this meal and evening were memorable. The setting is beautiful as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant for an upscale evening.
