    We came in last sat which is 1st weekend since Labor Day and realize that menu you see on open table it's not the same. Spoke to manager about the limited menu (no more oysters, no more lobster roll, etc) and were told that they changed the menu starting that day since it's after Labor Day. I guess, people don't eat oysters after Labor Day:)Also ask the waitress about corking fee since we brought out own bottle, we told that's it's only $16($4 per per), we said it's ok that processed with dinner ordering. When we had opened a second bottle manager notified us that it's gonna be $25 for the second bottle since it's their usual corking fee. $9 is not a big deal when you're paying $200 for dinner but still... Unfortunately will never come back

    The food was very good but had a 7:30 reservation didn't get done till 10:00. Didn't get main course at least an hour after arriving. Had a problem with an order and Manager very quickly resolved it. Would go back again but would plan on getting there earlier and hopefully get done sooner. Very nice outdoor location. We went on Wed. for lobster special should have more choices for non lobster patrons.

    Went for all u can eat lobster bake. Was told u could either get q claw or tail not both. So for $30 u get corn potatoes clams and claw u have to finish it in order to put in another order for all u can eat. Ur choice was also a $30 lobster roll or 2lb stuff lobster. We were told it was stuffed with shrimp ans crab meat. It was all breading dry. Major disappointment.

    We went to the Patio for their Wednesday night Lobster Special. It was an all you can eat lobster bake that included Maine Lobster, Clams, Mussels and potatoes in a both. The lobster was overcooked, tough and chewy, and they were very chintzy with the lobster portions. In each serving all I received was half a tiny lobster tail and part of one claw. One time my lobster "portion" was an empty clew, that's it. The clams were fairly large but they too were tough and the mussels were huge. If you want to dine in a marina setting the view is great, but don't expect much from the food. Our waitress was very pleasant, but the hostesses were unfriendly and rude.

    We went specifically to see the band 45 RPM but decided to go early and have dinner. It was lobster bake night. I did the all you can eat. It was about 20 minutes between getting the orders and that was only after getting the waitresses attention. We actually canceled the last order because it took so long. The food was ok, a little on the cold side. Drinks are over priced. We would definitely go again if 45 RPM was there but we will be eating somewhere else first.

    I went to The Patio with some friends for my birthday. The view and overall look of the restaurant was great. I also really enjoyed the food. My biggest complaint was with the service. We barely saw our waitress all night, it took over an hour for us to get our food after ordering, and they charged us over 20% for gratuity on our bill for lousy service. In addition, the place was very empty for a Saturday night. The band stopped playing at 10 pm and by 1030, the place was empty. It's a shame that such a beautiful place has such lousy service and poor atmosphere.

But the real standout is the food...Great shrimp tacos, lobster empanadas, and one of the best brick oven pizzas anywhere ! Its a little pricey but well worth it

    Great place to bring your spouse or special lady. Food was very good and portions just right. Service was a little slow and server was not very knowledgeable with regards to "how" meals were prepared when asked. However, overall very enjoyable experience and would return.

    We were there for Mothers Day. We arrived at noon, and our entrees were it served until 2. In the meantime, there were mistakes with our apps, and when the entrees did come, they had not made one person's food, so she waited even longer. When we ordered dessert and coffee, first they forgot coffee, then we had to wait forilk, and we never got sugar. The wait staff was nice and apologetic, but it's no way to run a restaurant, especially for the price. The food was good, but nothing great. And when we asked for aim bread instead of corn muffins, they did not have any. It was a hot mess.

They added on more outdoor space and change the menu a little bit. Dont worry those amazing wood fired pizzas are still available. The service was warm and friendly but the real treat was the food.

    The menu is limited. No side dishes. The chef will not substitute veggies for mashed potatoes even though they have mashed potatoes for other entrees. They do have kid options. The menu online is not accurate. They only had 3 desserts. My daughter (8 yrs) had kid pasta with sauce and they gave a giant plate with next to no pasta on the plate. The food was good. I had shrimp taco appetizer for dinner because of limited entree options. It was very good. My so. Enjoyed their burger and my husband enjoyed their stuffed lobster bake. They had brick oven pizza which looked good. Ambiance is great.
