Newagen Seaside Inn Ratings and Reviews
This place is located in the Inn itself which is very convenient if you are staying there. The night we went, it was very busy and I do not think they were expecting it. I believe the service suffered because of it. They did try very hard so an "A" for effort here.
This restaurant is lovely for a special occasion. The staff was very welcoming and the ambiance was perfect. Everything we ordered was delicious and well-prepared. We are looking forward to visiting again....(and wishing we did not live out of state)! Thank you.
We drove 25 minutes for our dinner reservation and upon arrival requested a window seat as the dining room was EMPTY! Request declined "because the tables were reserved"! Hello, we had a reservation but the host did not speak enough English to answer simple questions. Disappointing start to what should have been a quiet relaxing evening. Tables remained empty until near the end of our meal.
Chose Newagen Inn to celebrate our anniversary. Not too far to go and very nice in terms of the seaside location, friendly staff good food and beautiful facilities. Best part is that it is very much off the beaten path in an otherwise very busy tourist area which makes it peaceful and relaxing.
We were served by Ricardo at our seated table, but he was also responsible for taking care of people at the bar. He was inattentive, and so there were many times we would have to ask over and over for a to go box or drink. It took so long for our check to come that I had to get up to go to the bar to get it. It was especially alarming to is because my wife and I had gotten married that day at the inn, and we were still wearing our suit/dress. I would have assumed he would have been more personable, but that was hardly the case. The table next to us said more in congratulations than Ricardo did. In general, it seems the service is very slow, inattentive, and impersonal, but the food is very good. So if you're in the mood to sit and talk for hours with your friends rather than any staff during your meal the place is great. Otherwise, a quick and personal bite seems to be out of the question.
The food was as advertised and good. Cooked well, and delightfully presented. The menu selection left a little to be desired and was uninspired. The service this evening- like other days waiting for drinks at the bar- was abysmal. One dining companion, who ordered a burger, was told it was not cooked correctly the first time. The other three guests finished dinner before his meal arrived. Ordering was slow and the bartenders left a lot to be desired. Everything about this inn is wonderful, it's just a shame the service at the bar and restaurant was so poor.
Reservation was for 8:00 PM so the restaurant was not very busy. It is inside the Inn and the Inn is in the middle of no where so we expected the food and service to be outstanding. It took 2 hours to get our food, after we received our apps. The quality of the food did not reflect the prices. Our server did the best she could but had zero leadership. After waiting on our food for 2 hours, I had to send my crab cakes back. They were so salty, they were not edible. We never saw a manager. It was never addressed.
Good food at a good value. The acoustics in the dining room, coupled with the frequency of large groups dining and having "lots of fun" make it almost impossible for a couple to converse. A great place to dine with your family or your own large group, just not for conversation or the hearing impaired.
Good food ( outstanding mussels and lobster bisque) and excellent service from a young and enthusiastic staff make for an enjoyable evening. The only caveat relates to the ambiance. Our dinning area was attractive but quite noisy with stone floors and no sound absorbing materials of any sort which when full with families could be quite noisy. Also, we did not find the chairs to be comfortable for extended sitting and a long leisurely meal. The outdoor dinning would have been better for us if the evening had been warmer. Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable meal and we would return again.
Food was nicely prepared, however three of our party commented that the item was not presented as per the menu. I had a Caprese salad, which made no mention of sun-dried tomatoes or pesto, another in our party had Short Ribs, which were advertised being accompanied with carrots. They arrived with watercress and root vegetables.
