Our party of four ate outdoors on a beautiful night, we sat beneath palm trees overlooking the water and it felt like we were away on vacation. The food and service were excellent. Our waiter was very attentive, when bringing out our pre-dinner cocktails he noticed the drinks were not quite right (whiskey sours with a malbec ice cube - the ice cube was slushy and not frozen so the entire drink was red) and he offered to replace them before we even noticed anything was not right. Our food from appetizers through dessert was delicious. I would save this for a special occasion as our tab was over $300 (without ordering a bottle of wine, only 4 cocktails and one glass of wine) but would definitely return for a special night out.

We eat here quite often, however, we will not go back again and neither will our friends. We docked and dined Friday night and someone said our boat smelled like oil . We were immediately presented with our check ( before we had even finished our meals) and asked to leave right away. The boat, by the way did not smell at all . When eating outside at a marina, there are always marina smells. I called the manager when we got home to tell him how we were treated. He said he would take care of it and call me back. That was 2 days ago and we have never heard another thing. We should have, at the very least, gotten a discount on a meal we weren’t allowed to finish. VERY BAD FORM

Everything and everyone was excellent with the exception of our waitress who was inattentive, rude in her actions or lack o action. Maybe a bad day but if so leave it outside.

Friday night dinner. We had great service, drinks and food. Love the ambiance. The shrimp cocktail worth it, the clams, Caesar salad, everything. It is noisy. We will return. Reservations recommended in season.

Gorgeous views of the water, and nice clean decor and ambiance. I had the fried avocado with crab meat on top. It was tasty, but the fried avocado needed seasoning. The calamari was very good. The warm vanilla dates were kinda odd. Not sure I liked the flavor. Cocktails were good. Service was good. Nice that they have both a lunch and a brunch menu. I’d go back.

Food was great! I am personally gluten free and I was more than thrilled with the extensive menu of GF items! The other 3 guests were not, but loved all the selections of food. The only complaint was the service. When waiting tables its important to be able to properly communicate with the quests and know the menu for the most part. Also the wait staff should be properly trained on simple things like how to pour the wine from the carafe properly into the glass. I know I am nit-picking, but details like this can take a restaurant from average to above average.

Very enjoyable night. Good food and very pleasant service. Atmosphere is casual but classy. Would definitely go back/recommend to others. (A bit on the loud side, but not out of character for a bar/grill style restaurant.)

food was very good, but overpriced for what it was and the type of restaurant. Service was very good, but a little to over eager with how many times they asked how everything was, etc. It has the vibe of a place you can stop for a quick bite on the way back from somewhere, but the prices of a more upscale restaurant.

For the second time, we were disappointed with our meal and the service. It may be because we sat in a high top near the bar and our server had quite a few tables to care for. My pasta, usually excellent came out cold, most likely from sitting and when I bought this to attention of the server, she immediately brought it back to the kitchen to heat it back up. The problem was that it then came back burned. I told her that I wasn’t going to eat it and she was kind enough to bring it to the managers attention. He promptly took the item off my bill. My key learning, try to avoid sitting in the bar area which gets quite busy. We love the restaurant and this will not deter us from coming again, except requesting a different table area.

The place was beautiful and the menu diverse. I had a fish special which I had to send back because I felt it was under done. When it was re-presented I honestly didn’t feel that it was any different. Both the server and the owner knew I was dissatisfied, yet no offer of a discount ,drink or dessert was offered.

Food and service is usually good. This time when we went to the bar it was horrible. No-one make eye contact to order. In front of us there were two seats no coats or bags as well dirty dishes and empty glasses and the bar tender said someone was there. No one ever came it looked like he was holding seats. The young man was rude and needs a lesson on customer service. I hope we don't have this issue again we live in the area and this is a favorite place we visit often. I hope we don't get disappointed next time.

the restaurant continues to impress with great food. I am particularly picky with my love of pasta and few can compare with your pasta. The salmon is outstanding and everything we've ordered has been excellent and it's our "go to" location for excellent food and friendly service

We went for lobster night and 1/2 price wine. 1/2 price wine clearly stated on main menu next to Thursday night with lobster night. Was told only when seated at bar...oh well....I'll know better next time. 1 lb lobster was good...as well as salad wedge and clam chowder we ordered as appetizers. No bread was served to us as was on other tables. A better accompaniment instead of french fries would be better e.g. corn on cob, rice, veggie, Cole slaw etc. We would go back just until inlet cafe opens up again.

We love happy hour and the food in general. But our last experience with the service was less than good. It appeared that because we only wanted to order drinks and an entree that the server was perturbed. She asked us twice didn't we want to order an appy and after we said no thanks, she was less than attentive.

I've run into this issue before in high-end restaurants: With a check well over a hundred dollars for dinner for 2, nobody should ever walk away hungry. My lady and I were both still hungry. I've never minded spending a lot for a great dinner or great ambiance or great service however, leaving hungry isn't an option.
The portions are unacceptable for the price tag. That said, my fillet mignon was excellent. The wine list is also quite good.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. They are pricy so we often visit for a special occasion or when we are in the mood to splurge a bit. The ambiance is fantastic. Elegant beachy vibe. The views are outstanding and available to most tables in the restaurant. This visit we had oysters as we often do here and they were excellent. For dinner I had the salmon and hubby has a pizza....both delicious! The service is decent but a bit hit or miss. Some servers are very friendly, others seem a bit stiff....but service is always better at a table vs. the bar seats. We typically like to sit at bar seats to eat but never here. Regardless, the food and views still make this a highly rated spot for us!
