Menu, drinks and wait staff fantastic. Big downfall was the valet. Valet staff was unpleasant and was an overwhelming experience.

I love the place I love the atmosphere but did not like being seated in the back patio away from the live happening bar seating area there are lots of little bugs that were flying around we asked to be moved inside which made it perfect

Good Restaurant but we were given exactly 90 minutes for 4 people. If I would have know we were going to be given a time limit I would have easily went somewhere else. Conveniently this not something that is mention when you have to put your credit card down for your reservation. It was a birthday celebration and we didn't even have time for dessert and a birthday candle as our server kept reminding us of our time limit. With 3 apps, drinks and dinner and the bill with no dessert took us to exactly to 87 minutes, It you eat fast I highly recommend this place, atmosphere is perfect. If you like to take your time with dinner and conversation go somewhere else.

Food and service were fine. They limited me to 90 minutes which, in my opinion, is not enough time for drinks, appetizers, dinner, and desert. I was there with my wife celebrating my birthday. We were finishing our dinner when our server brought us our check and politely told us that we had to finish our meals and leave. I have never had anything like this happen to me before. We would have loved to have stayed longer, had desert, and listened to the live music. For the price I paid for dinner I did not expect to be rushed out the door. Too expensive to be rushed out. The place was packed so I am sure they don't really care. I will never go back again.

Fried Calamari was cold and had no “sticky” sauce as advertised. Huge disappointment. Zero flavor
Scallops wrapped in bacon was also served cold.
Salad was fresh
Service was good.
Atmosphere/scenery was beautiful

Lovely evening with a band outside by the water! Pros- food was pretty good and I had an awesome rum runner! Cons - too many people with poor dogs stuck under chairs or startled by the loud music. It also seemed a little rushed by the waitstaff wanting close out our tab and move us out.

The noise level it to much!

The four girls working the podium appear to be clueless.

Tried seating four mid 60s people in front of the band where we would not be able to hear ourselves think, let alone talk.

Finally got a table far enough away to make the noise tolerable.

The food and our service was excellent!

Great food except the onion rings were not hot - we were outdoors on a cool night so really can't judge that. Scallops and burger were fantastic. Awesome evening and the bank - Wicked Peach - made for a perfect evening.

The person waiting on us was great. The hostess was helpful. What I did not are for our table that we wanted was outside because we had planned to stay and watch the band. To be told once we were done eating table and chairs would have to be taking away. Standing room only. Now being someone that just had knee surgery I feel this is something that should be told when making reservations that after dinner table may be taken away. We had to leave after dinner for I was not able to stand all night.

The drinks were very good and the seafood was good. My medium steak came out well done, sent back and then came medium-well in the center but well on the edges. We did stay for 2-3 hours listening to the live music. The outdoor seating and water view was great.

Great ambience, especially on a beautiful sunny day. Sangria was delicious. Lobster salad was very good, but other orders were very ordinary for the prices. Waiter was not very attentive and even brought our check before asking if we wanted more drinks (we did). Music was blaring and not very good.
Go for the view, stay for the drinks, skip the food.

I had the filet and it was perfect. It was cooked just right and extremely flavorful! My wife had the RI Lobster roll and loved it. She thought the roll was great! The service was a little slow but it was a great day and we were seated outside. The music was a little loud for our liking! We will be back!!
