We reserve up to 75% of our restaurant for walk in guests in an effort to maintain reasonable wait times. Table availability for groups of 7 or more varies daily, please call for reservations for groups of 7 or more. With a reservation at Poseidon you may have to wait up to 15 minutes for your table to be ready. You do however completely avoid the wait list for walk in parties, which can be substantial.

From our outside NautiBar, the inside “The World is Your Oyster” Bar, covered patio dining on our Front Porch, the Rooftop Bar with live entertainment, Coastal Provisions retail, and the adjacent waterfront Town Park, there is so much to see, you will want to come back again and again. Poseidon brings together a true, unique, Coastal Hospitality® and dining experience that we hope will create wonderful memories that will last a lifetime and be remembered for generations to come. Enjoy!

Large selection of fish with many choices for preparation. All meals were nicely plated and delicious. Crab cakes were exceptional. Crème brule a must.

We have been more and more disappointed with this venue. We use to love it but we found the food either greasy or undercooked. Tonight was bad I couldn’t eat mine. Scallops was not done. Even with the buy one get one half with tip a 90.00 tab. We like their breakfast we will go back for that but we are done with dinners with this Restrurant I’m not sure what has changed but the quality of food is not only good but over priced for what you get.

Really good food and service. The amount of seafood for the price was a little skimpy compared to other seafood restaurants.

Very disappointed in our experience at Poseidon. I ordered the salmon with mashed potatoes and neither had much flavor. Seems overrated. The service was good.

This is a GREAT spot for Sunday Brunch especially now that the "tourist" season is behind us for a few months. Great food, great view and great service.

Reserved outside seating. Was chilly so they said if we waited 20 minutes we could be seated inside. Over an hour later we were seated!! Ugh!! The manager was very nice but we were very misinformed.

The food was excellent, party of four, had oysters, crab cakes, prime rib and a seafood pasta dish. We had the local oysters on the half shell (Single Lady) and they were fresh and very tasty with mix-in horse radish cocktail sauce. The crab cakes had little or no cracker / breading, and were good size (2 for the dinner portion). Prime Rib was excellent, just slightly overcooked for medium-rare. Seafood pasta portion was huge - 2 meals for a big guy. We got there early and the place was full at 5:30pm, but we had reservations and were seated quickly. The wait staff were overworked so not much to say about the service, it was okay, and considering it's a holiday, and full, they did fine.

We had dinner at 5 pm or so. The restaurant offers a twilight dinner. The three members of family ordered the twilight dinner and one ordered the regular menu. We thought the twilight dinner was better because it comes with drink and soup. Enjoyed the dinner.

We come here a few times a year. During our last visit I felt like we were getting railroaded by our waitress in ordering the most expensive wine (we asked for a recommendation and of course,she suggested the most expensive per glass one). Then we started ordering bottles of wine....we ordered two. And low and behold, she "accidently" charged us $5 more per bottle....which we did bring to her attention. Other than that, it was good.

Service was poor. The food was served ice cold. We asked for grits to be replaced and they were cold too.
The fish was very poor quality.

My wife and I have been there many times since they opened this time We went for Thanksgiving evening dinner not very crowded certainly somewhat understaffed service was just okay kitchen seemed slow however all the food was very good but there was a very limited holiday menu and it was $38 per person which seemed a bit pricey .....all in all okay

We enjoyed the Thanksgiving pre-fix menu and came back on Friday for seafood. Everyone enjoyed the meal. My son and his wife especially enjoyed the crispy sushi and were surprised by the size of the meal.
