Very good food with a beautiful ocean view. They do not have a huge menu per se but what they offer are great choices. There is something for everyone. I must say that even better than the food is the service. If you are fortunate enough to get George as your server you will feel so welcome. He takes care of his tables like no server I have ever known. We are from out of town and when we dine there he remembers everything about us. The best ever!!!

Don't let the hotel location fool you. Emily and her staff are world class. If you are vegan they are more than happy to be creative to make something not on the menu.

We had the most beautiful time! It was Valentine’s Night and there were flowers and hearts on the table and heart balloons everywhere...George treated us like rock stars and suggested a delicious wine! George creates magic every time! Their Valentine special was lobster tail and filet with delicious mashed potatoes and broccolini...we love it there..DONNA at the front hostess station treats us like family every time! Super place..and it’s oceanfront..

Excellent food and beautiful views of the ocean at sunset. I had the loaded baked potato soup and the filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. Both were outstanding. My husband had the flounder with crab meat stuffing, risotto and asparagus. He loved it. We shared the Kahlua Choc. truffle cheesecake for dessert, yum! It was a great early Valentine's dinner. The service was very good. Our server, Jenny, was so nice and recommended dishes to try. We enjoyed talking with her.

Very good experience here. Come with an empty stomach as portions are very substantial. We couldn't even eat dessert. The service was great. She was great and kept our waters full, which is a task considering that my husband is a fish. The catch of the day was amazing.

Disappointed with food. Cost much too high for what you get. I had scallops which was served over a creamed kind of corn, $28.00. Appetizer Crab cakes all breading, not much crab $14.00. My husband had flounder stuffed with crab stuffing, stuffing not so good, alot of green peppers, served with green beans $25.00. The online menu was not what was presented when we got there. Online menu mentions a pasta dish with seafood, also a bore belly dish. No pasta on menu at all. No ambiance, it was dark, 6pm reservations, could not see anything from windows.

This is a wonderful restaurant. Food is delicious and service is great! Thanks so much to George. He always provide excellent service and is goes beyond the call to ensure everyone has the best service possible. Thanks to the Chef that made certain our person with a dairy allergy was taken care of properly. I would recommend to anyone. We go every time that we can.

Never disappointed with the food or gracious attention of our preferred server, George Clark. Donna greets us at the hostess station by name each year for our "annual" visit in August. This most recent visit was an extra treat and has cemented the decision to make this trip a "Must do" as often throughout the year as possible.l

Food preparation requests are always managed efficiently and without question. The ocean view is stunning, but the real attraction is the combination of food, service and wonderful interaction with George and Donna.

George our waiter was great and moved us closer to the windows after a table opened up. Also provided birthday dessert gratis. However, the lighting was too bright and the windows were dirty making the ocean view underwhelming. There was a very basic table setting and chairs which could use a makeover. Food was good, timely and service was not rushed. The food outpaced the ambience.
