    Had a Bookclub meeting. The service was good. The food was great. The specials of the day were delicious. They ran out of a few things, but that’s a reflection of our current state of affairs, everybody’s having supply chain issues, We loved the winter wonderland decor. It was my Bookclub’s second time there and I’m sure we will have future meetings there.

    Small and intimate location. Staff are very attentive and pleasant.. the food was excellent.. The crab dip with the soft pretzel, cheese charcuterie board, oyster Rockefeller and the cut of the night were tasty. I would suggest making a reservation as it is a small location.. wonderful dining experience

    Food and atmosphere were excellent. Service was good, just a bit slow with bringing drinks… may have just been a little shorthanded at the bar or something.

    Tasty innovative sandwiches. Beautiful setting and a good cause to boot. I had the cauliflower filled tacos and couldn't believe how good they were. As good as any meat filled taco I have had. I wish I knew how they made to taco shell soft on the outside and crunchy on the inside. My wife had the salmon BLT and loved it.

    Ampersea did not disappoint. Highly impressed with the food and the holiday decor. The manager was a lot of fun and sent me a shot. Loved the atmosphere and would definitely return for dinner or brunch. Locals also recommended this restaurant to us so I know it wasn’t just a fluke.

    Hands down the best food I’ve had in awhile. Every single dish did not disappoint. The butternut squash ravioli is the best things my tastebuds have had. Chef’s kiss 💋. Everyone of the staff was very attentive. By time I finished my plate someone was there to clear it away. Would recommend 5 stars. Thank you

    It was a first time dinning here, We both recall when it was water street kitchen (or something) we came on the Saturday after the holiday. It was decorated very festively. We started with the honey and hot chicken wings. Though it was mostly honey and the carrots were soggy. For our brunch entree I had the Ampersea seafood omelet with home fries. And my partner the sausage gravy. Both were ample portions, the seafood in the omelet was very fresh and the home fried potatoes were fresh cut. They’re wasn’t any complaints from my partner. The bartender offered us to try a signature cocktail. Which was delicious very Smokey with a hint of maple. My only complaint besides the wings was my drink (A French75) didn’t quite taste the part and my partner mentioned his sangria was flat. Also they’re was no mentioning of coffee when our server. Who was very polite by the way came to greet our table nor anywhere listed on the menu for those who don’t drink. All in all was a great experience. Perhaps we’ll return to check out dinner on the water.

    Food was very disappointing. Ordered the steak and eggs and steak had a sauce on it that definitely tasted like A1 sauce. My friend had the chicken and waffles. The chicken breast was over cooked and lacked seasoning.

    This was our second time at this restaurant and I was underwhelmed by the whole experience. There was only another couple in the whole restaurant. We reserved seats for 4:00pm. The menu was so limited and the drink menu was worse. After awhile there were diners who ate outside, but I won’t be eating there again. There is a 18% gratuity added on your tab.
