“good food and good $”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

We decided to eat here because of the reviews on tripadvisor. Got parking right up front (got lucky on that) we had a choice of sitting in main dinning room (wait time 30 min) or sitting in bar area - we were hungry so we went to bar. Its casual we were wearing shorts and flip flops. Appitizers were half off totally great for the budget . We had crusted brie w/h mango sauce (excellent) crab stuffed mushrooms (yum) scallops w/h spinich on top of a potato pancake (love it) kids had clam chowder in a bread bowl and said great. Our waitress was spot on. Supper busy in the place .so with 2 drinks kids drinks 5 appitizers and 2 desserts it came to $ 55.00 we were stuffed -

“Very Good Service and Food”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

This place has great ocean views for both indoor and outdoor dining. The service is great and the food is excellent. Probably not so good for kids but is great for couples wanting relatively quite evening of fine dining.

“Nice location on th Boardwalk”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Enjoyed the food, my wife had the potato wrap (fish), she said she can see why it was one of their signature dishes, I had Steak and Scallops, prepared well and very tastey. I thought fair prices for the area.
