We enjoyed a delicious lobster dinner at 22 Bowen's. We walked into the restaurant on a busy night and were seated promptly and served by a friendly and experienced waitress. The food was wonderful; tasty and well presented. This was not an inexpensive outing, but was well worth the price.

It really is a great restaurant - top quality steaks always cooked to your specifications - but all too often not served promptly.

We ate here twice - both dinners were well-prepared and delicious. Service friendly. Good wine list for a dockside restaurant.

We loved the ambiance, the staff, the choices of drinks and the service. The food was terrific..both the salmon and swordfish were excellent as was the chowder and bib salad. Highly recommend it. Make reservations and request outside dining. You overlook the boats.

The food was good, but we had a waiter who really didn't know what he was doing.

After we were seated, we waited 10 minutes before our server showed up. While we waited, we asked the people on the table next to us what they were having because it looked good. IT was the special.

When our waiter finally arrived to take our order (didn't ask us if we wanted anything to drink), pen and paper in hand, he mentioned nothing of any specials. When we asked him about any specials, his reply was, "Just what's on the menu".

We pointed out the special from the next table and the waiter looked really bewildered and complained of a computer problem. THen he left to find out more. When he came back and described the sandwich, we asked what kind of cheese. Off again, he went. He came back and didn't know what kind of bread (looked like a baguette). We both got the special and what arrived was nothing like what the people next to us had. It was a wrap. It was good.

Then I had to ask him if I could have a coke.

Geez...where do they get these people?
