A spur of the moment decision to meet friends for dinner brought us here. It was a Friday night, and the outside landing/porch was full of people waiting to get in when we arrived. After being advised of a 45 minute wait we were finally seated in a little over an hour. The host taking reservations at the desk seemed to do his best to keep customers informed of their wait times. The server apologized for taking so long to get seated. The food was good.

Very accommodating - we were a group of 26 and they were able to seat us at adjoining tables in the same room. Food was very good.

We decided to try the seafood favorite after a cruise on Lake Champlain. Visiting for Family Weekend at Champlain, had college kids in tow. They were accommodating when the size of our party changed. Drinks were slow ("bartender working on it"), food was well prepared and delicious-- we order lots of lobster, ravioli, lobster rolls, lobsters and crab legs-- service was just ok. Waiting on drinks, then waiting on our food -- kind of ok because it allowed us to view the sunset--always awesome after a great weather day. For me, I will probably visit again- but won't go out of my way with all the restaurant options in vibrant Burlington

A large group of us were in town for a business meeting. We went here for dinner because we wanted to eat by the water. This was a great find! The location is excellent - we were seated right next to the window, overlooking Lake Champlain. The service was also great. Despite having a large group, we got our food rather quickly and the waitress was very attentive with refills, etc. The food was reasonably priced and was pretty good. We enjoyed it so much that most of us returned for lunch the next day. I ordered the lobster roll which was excellent. I also enjoyed the mac & cheese side, as well as the lobster potato skins that our group ordered as an appetizer. This was one of my favorite places in Burlington!
