    I love The Warehouse and it's food. This time my family went for dinner on a Friday night which is also their salsa night. We sat outside and the waiter we had just seemed to be under the influence of something. We sat at the table right by the stairs when you first enter the patio area, he so so lazy that when he served us our food it didn't even bother to come down the 3 stairs, he just reached over the banister and dropped out food on the table. My mother, brother and I ordered drinks, appetizers, and each a main entrée so you can imagine what our bill came up to for 3 ppl ordering that amount of food at The Warehouse. My mother and I split the bill she tipped him I didn't. I just couldn't. Comment was left.

    I've been here several times, always a good experience. They have one of my favorite Sunday Brunch buffets including a great omelette bar and bottomless mimosas. Dinner time is always great as well with good food and friendly service. And certain nights of the week they even feature live music in the bar! Right on the marina so it's nice to sit outside and enjoy the view as well.

    Dined here many times over the years. Lately it seems not to be consistent with service and food. Maybe it was crowded and being a holiday weekend they were a little overwhelmed. I won't write this restaurant off as have had many great meals and experiences in the past, but needs to be more attention put on the food and service to compete with nearby Marina restaurants.

    We went for brunch to celebrate my youngest son's birthday. The food as usual was excellent. We had a great time. The photographer that took pictures was very nice. Our waiter was very attentive. Although, this restaurant is owned by the same people that own "The Smokehouse", "The Warehouse" is much more friendly and accommodating to children and disabled children/people.

    Our first date was here 25 years ago and we came back for a romantic anniversary dinner on the patio, we were not disappointed. Our server Mike was great, he's has been here for as long as we've been married. The baked sweet potato is the best thing I've ever eaten and my husband loved his halibut. We usually come to brunch with our kids, who love the chocolate fountain and waffles, but it was nice to have an adult dinner with live music in the background.

    Happy to see place refurbished with newly upholstered booths and wood tables. I had the short ribs which were best ever. My lady couldn't decide between the many fresh fish offered so went to the lobster tank and picked her entree. She also went for gigantic sweet potato which she said best one she ever ate!

    I had high hopes of enjoying a good bottle of wine along with a fine cut of prime rib.... only to be let down miserably. I selected a cabernet from a quite limited wine list. The waitress came back stating they didn't have that particular wine(strike one! ) so I chose an alternate selection...only to be told again upon the waitress's return that they didn't have that wine either!!! (Strike two! ) The final strike came with my entree incorrectly prepared. I ordered a 16oz. Prime rib and requested a rare-to-medium rare cut... only to again be disappointed with a medium-well cut served in front of me.... dry and chewy. This was more like a 16 oz of prime rob! Oh well.... :(

    This place definitely has character inside and out. The decor and ambiance are great, and the food is hit and miss. Our entrees were fantastic, but the clam chowder tasted completely of cream and nothing else. Also, we were seated in a booth facing the ocean, which was lovely except for it was hard to get a waiters attention.

    Went back to The Warehouse again, this time with my wife and daughter. Food was great. We opted to sit outside this time, as the sun had not gone down yet, and consequently was not starting to get gold yet. Nice view of the Marina - there was some regatta finishing up or some similar event going-on. The only complaint I would say, was that our entrees seemed to take longer that I would have thought. We arrived for our reservation at about 6:30 PM and were seated nearly immediately, then ordered and had some drinks and appetizers. The main entrees didn't arrive until about 7:30 PM. Luckily, we were in no hurry and having no plans for immediately after dinner. Of course, all the food was wonderful - just was an unusually long wait.

    The outside patio was a great place to sit, however, there was a table which had a gentleman that was smoking which detracted from being able to enjoy outside. Our server was not very attentive and the food was only average. Out of 6 diners, only 1 was truly happy with their meal. Finally, I indicated in my Open Table reservation as well as when I arrived to the restaurant that we were there to celebrate a 30th wedding anniversary. I understand if it is not policy to provide a dessert or anything to guests celebrating - however, no one mentioned a congratulations or any sort of well wishing to the couple which was a bit frustrating. I don't believe I will be visiting again.

    We came here on the 4th of July because the restaurant has a valet lot and a view of the fireworks. It took so long to get our meals that we practically missed the fireworks. I realize it was a holiday and they were busy, but they did not appear to be swamped, yet the kitchen took forever to bring out four dinners. The food is not terrible, and definitely not great. Go for the view of the harbor, but don't expect a lot.

    We had dinner here on the Fourth of July and got a view of the fireworks at 9 p.m. The food and atmosphere were good. It was a bit hard to get our server's attention, though, probably due to the restaurant's being so full for the holiday.

    The valet service was great I had a reservation so seating was quick. The service was fast and excellent. I took 3 male guests who were very happy with the view, the quality of the food and the service. All our entrees were generous. The bread was hot and excellent tasting. The seafood and the burger were excellent. I will return soon as I live close by and eat out for lunch often. I was happy that beef is on the menu for my one guest who is not interested in seafood for fish. Lucky me!

    My wife (of only a few years) was wanting to try someplace she had never been for our Father's Day dinner. I had been about 15+ years since I had last been to The Warehouse - way before I met my wife. I wanted a good Steak and some sides, and my wife wanted Surf & Turf. So, this was a good fit. The place has not really changed since the last time I was there (15+ years ago), and this is a good thing. The food and service had always been good there. My Fillet was excellent, as was my wife's "split-cargo" (surf-and-turf) Fillet & Prawns. We also had some sides and opted for some excellent Cappuccino ice-cream for dessert. This night was just the wife and I. Will definitely come back again another time, with the broader family.

    This place is past it's prime and needs a seriously overhaul. It reminds me of a bad hotel in Vegas. The service was nonexistent.

    The food and ambiance were fantastic, but my diet coke was completely flat, and the waiter kept INSISTING that there was nothing wrong with their machine. Nobody from the restaurant took the time to TASTE the diet coke. The waiter just kept telling me that it "looked fizzy" when it was coming out of the machine. I said that may be true, but it is completely flat now that you've brought it to the table. He attempted to bring me a diet coke poured from a bottle that he admitted was "already open." It was a small detail but annoying enough to make me not want to return. If you're serving carbonated beverages, you need to have someone taste test your machine on a daily basis! Especially at a place that presents itself as "upscale!"

    We recommended this restaurant for a birthday celebration and were greatly disappointed. The food was fair at best, but the service was amoung the worst that we have ever had at any restaurant. I had to ask repediately for sweetener for our tea, butter for our bread, and this is just a couple of items that were requested over and over again. Our waiter even disappeard for 30 minutes between our meal and ordering desert. The Warehouse is nothing like it used to be. We will not be dining here anymore.

    I have eaten there a number of times through the years. Great location, but is really in need of a make-over. Dark and feels dirty, Swordfish was not good for a Thursday. Not fresh and overcooked. The sauce is what saved it. Clam chowder way to thick and also not fresh.

    The food was okay. It's always been variable for brunch anthis was one of the less stellar times. Still nothing was bad some items were just not as good as they usually are. However having brunch while sitting on the patio and looking over the marina remains an experience not to be missed.
