    Had dinner there last Saturday night. Service was great ... food was okay; wouldn't rush back. The salmon was very bland, no flavor whatsoever. The mussel bake was just okay. Lots of kids there.

    We were seated at 2pm and the food was not fresh and the chefs had stopped cooking. For example they wwere no longer making waffles, roast beef was cold, ran out of ice cream in dessert section. Can't believe we paid $80 per plate for such poor quality food. Definitely did not gwy our money's worth.

    The food and service were fine. However the dining ambience was more like a coffee shop with no tablecloths for evening dining. Half of the guests in the dining room were young children. It is not very appealing for adult dining in the evening.

    My boyfriend ordered a steak well-done and it came out medium. While I ordered medium and got medium-rare. I didn't bother to say anything since it took so long to get the food. The food wasn't bad. Don't know if I would come again.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at SHOR. It was our first visit but we will surely be back. Our dinners and martinis were delicious. Also enjoyed our wine list choices with dinner. Delicious bread! Excellent, attentive, friendly service. Thank you.

  • Convenient but overpriced

    Convenient but overpriced for customers of the Hyatt Regency. We ate her three times because of a conference in the hotel. The butternut squash soup and crab cakes were good the risotto was not that good. Its pricey for what is being served. The wine is very overpriced. The 'outdoor' seating basically overlooks the driveway of the hotel.

    We living locally and consider the menu there excellent, return every couple of months. Thought well enough of them to go for NY Eve dinner. Seafood selections are excellent. They have a good chef. Ambience is so-so because it's a hotel restaurant, so not very romantic. In warmer weather it would be good to dine outdoors with this menu, we haven't done that yet. Servers are always falling over themselves to be excellent, they really have g reat servers. Valet parking is comped if you tell them you are local.

    Had an amazing experience here! The staff were all very friendly and knowledgable of the menu and wine. The food is mostly local and a lot scratch made. Some of the best crab cakes I've ever had. The lobster ravioli was also great. All around good seafood and service. Highly recommend.
