Excellent food, slow service, extremely noisey, hardly any masks, poor social distancing, a full viral load! Recommended only for off-hours.

Very good food. Could tell waitress was catering to the larger groups more attentively than me and my date. We waited 20 minutes for drinks and felt rushed to get our food orders in. We only were checked on 2 times in the hour and a half we were there. Other than that the place is very nice with great tasting food.

Rich, crab filled appetizer could have been sufficient for three. We all decided upon the fish and chips which was well prepared and served piping hot. Although we were there for more than two hours, our server was attentive, but never intrusive.

During this visit an issue next door resulted in the lights /power going out. The staff was amazing and kept everyone well informed. I cannot rate the food because we left because of the power issue. However , based on my past experience the food has been well prepared. I would still recommend this restaurant because the food and the staff are excellent!

I made reservations for dinner, but when we arrived, we were placed in the bar. They were kind enough to move us when requested. The tables were close together and the restaurant was extremely noisy. The food was ok. The service from Bryan was wonderful. He checked in frequently to make sure had everything we needed.

I know crab prices are up but the price of a small crabcake was steep. Ordered a side salad. It was tiny and only had a few pieces of cucumber and one cherry tomato on a few mesclun greens. Disappointing

the prices are decent. the food was very good as was the service. our server was pleasant and attentive. the noise level was moderate but at times louder but that was expected since it was lunch time on a Saturday. all in all, our dining experience was very good. I would absolutely go back and recommend others give them a try.

Food was served at room temperature instead of hot. Sent it back, still not hot.

Meanwhile, the noise (in the main dining room from behind the wood wall) where bus people put used dishes, etc. was unbelievable. They just slam down whatever they are delivering, completely oblivious to people on the other side trying to enjoy a meal.

Very disappointing evening.
