“Enjoyed the Food, View and Service!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

I visited this location with two co-workers and we were able to get seat quickly (we had a reservation) and there was excellent service. They were having a lobster and steak special so we all three order it. One of the co-workers ordered oysters appetizer and enjoyed it as well.

Though it was cloudy and getting dark when we arrived, we were really able to enjoy the view of the lights once it was dark.

The atmosphere inside was nothing fancy but the views during clear times are probably awesome. I would definitely go back and recommend it to others.

“Great Location; Average Food”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

My wife and I stopped in for a Saturday evening dinner on a trip south and happened to pick the evening when Bon Jovi was in town. So our attempt to stay on the waterfront was thwarted but we managed to land in a great B & B (The Branch Colonial House). Our choice of this restaurant was fine, just not great. The place was busy and perhaps the staff was not expecting it to be so but they were not the issue. The food quality reflected a sense of not having to be "over the top" because we are who we are. I'm sure that this must have been an off night and that the restaurant finds its high standards again.

“Yummy salmon”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

They didn't advertise alder plank salmon but had no problem doing it anyway, good quality fish, cold side veggies but that was ok. Fine atmosphere. Chowder - clear broth, didn't know i would like it so much, but it was great.
