    Food and drinks are always good; however, we always get the table by the bar and when people stand there, they are too close to us.

    Good was great but expensive. Too cramped tables were too close together. Afraid the wait staff was going to drop a tray as they squeezed by to serve patrons. The view of the beach and ocean were outstanding.

    Great food and lovely atmosphere. Service was a little slow as they were very busy on Mothers Day but the food was well worth the wait. We were from out of town and booked last minute and it didn’t disappoint at all. We will definitely be back. Lisa

    We had a 9am reservation for four on Mothers day for the brunch buffet. Upon arrival we were seated immediately. The inside dining room is very welcoming and set up well. The spacing between tables is perfect. The one hiccup we ran into was the buffet was not ready until 40 minutes after we were seated but this had no bearing on my time here because the manager went to each table and explained the situation. The food was perfection. It was plentiful , delicious, and surprisingly high brow for a buffet. I mean deviled eggs and buratta mozzarella at a buffet? Amazing. Will definitely be back.

    We had a very nice meal, but the restaurant is quite noisy when full and when no windows are open due to the time of year and weather outside. Perhaps some added sound insulation in the dining areas could be considered to reduce the overall noise level somewhat?

    Not sure if a new chef, but food was just average and not very hot. It wasn't crowded, so now sure why...also pricey for average tasting food.

    A little busier than I was expecting for a Wednesday in May, we celebrated our 20th anniversary there. Everything worked out great.

    Tuna tartare a bit off. Price point just too high for what it is. Pasta cooked well, lobster ravioli good. Fried calamari excellent. Worth a try but bring money.
