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!

This place is phenomenal. Brock the outside bartender is the best on the island. Best Happy Hour in the world, both food and drinks. Give this place a try and I'm sure you'll like it.

Good food at a fair price, but definitively not for a romantic,or cosy dinner.
Delicious clam chowder,oyster and fish and chip’s, and scallops. However my rice and stuffed shrimp were way to spicy. The tables are very close together, so it is noisy and you feel crowded.
Service was very intense, good but a little to drill sargeant for our taste.
You feel like you should eat fast and leave, even with 5,6 tables remaining they were mopping the floor at 9 o clock.
A good seafood family restaurant.

Enjoyed a great night at a great table outside. Have eaten many times before at Poseidon, and except for the service this was one of our better nights there. Food was very good--I had the scallops, my husband had the crab cakes.

The ambiance and the food was very good and we certainly would come back again. However, we waited 15-20 minutes after arriving early for our reservation - not a great start to our date. We made a reservation to sit outside and there was a wedding party upstairs that may have limited the outdoor seating - whatever the case may be, we spent 15-20 staring at the army of hostesses until we received a text notifying that our seats were ready.

We sat outside and had a nice view of the community park and Broad Creek. The dozen local oysters were fresh and tasty. The food - San Francisco cioppino with noodles (tagliatelle), Baja salad and fried green tomatoes, were very good. The ambiance was lively and energetic. Overall, we would come back and it’s a great place for a date night.

Our first visit and this was highly recommend. It took the waitress 15 minutes to get to our table. She had too many tables to handle at once. I noticed other tables not getting the service either. I once was a waitress and she should of came to inform us she’d be with us as soon as she could or the hostess should of indicated that it may be a bit. Ordered king crab and I would suggest that it be split before serving. This makes it easier for the guest to clean.

I thought the food was average for the Island. We sat outside on the covered patio near the bar so it was noisy. Our server disappeared for over 15 minutes after taking our initial drink order. Once the drinks arrived service improved somewhat, but they must have been understaffed.

My Husband and I decided to come this past weekend for a romantic getaway. I have to say we seen great reviews online and decided to try it out. They do have upstairs seating however it was booked for a private party. We did still sit outside on the first floor looking out to the Marsh there was a beautiful wedding going on as well! The food was AMAZING. My husband and I both went though culinary school so we are foodies to say the least. My Husband had the San Francisco Cioppino which came with So much seafood. If anyone is wanting a dish with the ocean literally on your plate this was it! I ordered the 6oz Filet and it came out so tender and seasoned well! Wonderful handcrafted drinks to top it off. The service was fantastic even though it was a Saturday night slammed packed and a private event going on our sever checked on us frequently and had great food recommendations. This will definatly be a new favorite when we visit!

We went to the restaurant on Friday night for the band because of the recommendation from our friend. However, there is a private event. If we knew that when I made a reservation through opentable, I would have changed the time for the dinner.

The outdoor seating comes with sun in your face at times and extremely loud ambient noise. The menu selection is good but the food (Mahi and Grouper) was only fair. Our waitress was exceptional.

We’ve been here for happy hour and enjoyed the menu so we did brunch this time. The menu has a good variety of items and the prices are a great value. We really enjoyed the mimosas. Our server PJ was excellent. He gave us some great suggestions on the menu and was very attentive. We ended up splitting a brunch special which had eggs, bacon and sausage, French toast, breakfast potatoes and two pieces of toast. Everything was delicious, especially the potatoes. We had a great view of the water from our table. This is an excellent place for brunch, happy hour and dinner. Don’t miss it.

Food was fabulous, service was good. Made a reservation for a view and was seated in back of first floor bar with no view. When I told the person seating my husband and I at our table what I had requested they didn’t seem to care and seated us anyway. I’d really like to go back and sit at the table we requested with view, but doubt we will go back.

We had a very personable server named Michael. It was busy; however he was still attentive and quick. We had shrimp by the pound, sushi and sliders. The sushi and shrimp were wonderful! The sliders were ok. I wouldn’t order them again but they weren’t terrible. Ambiance was great, friendly hostess staff and the bartender had a generous pour!
