They provide a very diverse menu from appetizers, fresh fish, steaks and delicious brioche bun burgers. We were pleased with the diverse wine list and many local micro brews. Reservations required because it is so popular like the Duck Soup Inn.

What a surprise to find such a nice restaurant right at the harbor. Small and cozy with very good food. Great for a romantic dinner and not a place to take a bunch of kids. The staff were friendly and professional. If they are advertising homemade pie for dessert, save room. The best I have had in a restaurant!

Were seated and received water from busboy and that was it. No one came over in the next half hour even though the waitress from the very next table looked over at us several times as did the owner. Wasn't crowded either - maybe 6-7 tables. So got up and left after speaking to the owner. Don't understand it!! Either they have enough business, don't have enough staff (which didn't seem to be the case) or simply don't care. Give your business to one of the many other good restaurants who do appreciate it like "Cask & Schooner" or "Rumor Mill".

we found a local guy by his truck and he suggested The Place when asked. He was correct! We ordered salmon and filet. Both were so good we wished that we had another night there.

Halibut was excellent, service was friendly and good and view is incredible. Also enjoyed the chicken fettuccini.
