Food and service were excellent. We had the Crab cake and Lobster Mac & cheese, both were incredible! Incredible view of the North West Harbor.
Spectacular — 10/10 would recommend
We had the scallops and short ribs. Both were delicious!
Food was delicious and the location is beautiful. Right on the water. It was rainy, so we did not get to take advantage of the outdoor seating, unfortunately. It was very open, which was nice, but it also would have been nice to have some booths to provide just a bit of 'privacy', as the tables were all within the same room. it is pricey, but you can tell the quality is top-notch. We had the lobster mac and cheese and it was delicious! Large chunks of lobster. The Crab dip appetizer was good also - served with a huge soft pretzel. Would definitely go back.
Great vibe , view , service . Food had a fresh water taste but maybe that was their style for the crab cake
Beautiful outdoor patio, amazing crab cakes, excellent service.
This is my third time here! I absolutely love this place!!!
Anniversary dinner was nice!
Great restaurant right on the water, perfect for girls or date night! Food was amazing, wine was great, and the outdoor patio is to die for!
Nice outdoor ambiance, great vegan options!
This restaurant has promise, especially since it is nicely located. The problem is that the servers are not well-trained, and they did not have multiple items on the menu.
Celebrated my birthday with my sista circle. We had several appetizers (the crab dip, mussels, brussels and wings) Delicious as always. Thanks for the suggestion Kyle. The server Landy was very attentive and Jordan was a big help with everything from water to moving the heated lamp closer for my sista who was cold. The cake at the end was a perfect way to end to my birthday celebration. Thanks Ampersea
Waiters service is slow. Waited about 20mins before we could even get drinks. This is the second time I have experienced service like this at this location.
View is spectacular. Food is very good. Pricey. Would love to see some happy hour specials.
The fried green tomatoes were greasy and under seasoned. The brussel sprouts were the same.
We had a beautiful time , my family and I celebrating my moms birthday, food was great and the water view was everything, staff was pleasant and accommodating, will definitely be going back
Your hosts weren’t on one accord. 2 different people were telling me 2 different things. I had a party of 4 and one person was missing. They had my elderly grandmothers standing up for more than 30 minutes. Overall the food was great and so were the drinks.
Outstanding location, food and service. Putting this on our list of favorites. Looking forward to dining there again.
Food was good and portions were big but the Ampersea Seafood Omlette was a bit bland tasting
It took a while to be served after sitting. The food was tasty and the ambiance is beautiful.
The view and ambiance when sitting in the deck is great and the food was really good, better than expected! A couple recommendations: 1) provide proper salt and pepper shakers, not the cardboard ones from the store. 2) provide salsa with the breakfast burrito.
Great service and food will definitely be back again
The coffee was weak and cold. For brunch there was only a seafood omelette option, no other omelettes. It was okay at best. The view of the water and planted flower beds was lovely. Will not return
Great views and live music. Awesome food!
It was very pretty and quiet for it to be outside but the service wasn’t the best neither was the food. The best part was the devil eggs little spicy but good 6/10
The owners make you feel welcome and special— we enjoyed talking to them!
Wonderful! Gabriel was the quintessential waitress!
Simply put, the food is overpriced and just not good. While it’s a great ambience to sit by the water won’t be returning.
Food is outstanding. Service is slow.
Will not disappoint! Go for the brussel sprouts and grilled iceberg lettuce. Great veggie mushroom risotto too.
Dirty patio, subpar food. Wouldn’t recommend. It is right on the water which is nice, but not worth it for the food.
Everything was amazing, especially our server Landy!
Great food. Beautiful setting by the water with live music. I’d highly recommend.
The service was great and the view was wonderful. The food was not worth the price unfortunately.
We had an excellent seat outside with a beautiful view of the harbor. We ordered the octopus, fried green tomatoes and entrees - Hook and Line (sea bass) and cauliflower tacos. The portion sizes were hearty but not too big. We left full but not “couldn’t walk full”. The octopus had great flavor and seasoning along with side potatoes. The tacos had a soft tortilla on the outside and a hard taco on the inside. Good texture and complemented the crunchy cauliflower. Cocktails included Peach Bellini and old fashioned. Would go back.
Food was not great. Wait staff were horrible. Wasn’t attending the tables. Just the bar.
My partner and I came to celebrate our anniversary and this will be my final time dining at Ampersea. From my salad coming out with “cotton” on it; to being told they do not offer replates when an item comes from the kitchen very visibly contaminated; to the extremely dirty plate my lobster roll was set upon and the manager being rude. I was extremely disappointed in the service I received at what used to be a great place to dine. Not to mention this month is a highlight to the food and safety standards all restaurants should be upholding day to day; I was very dismayed that an establishment I once raved over would even conduct themselves in such a manner. The only saving grace of the evening was the bartender whose service was amazing despite the shortcomings of the manager.
Food was delicious, setting was beautiful, service was decent!
