This place has so much potential, I hope they can improve. I really hate giving less than glowing reviews, but maybe they need some motivation to get better. We were seated immediately but it took ten minutes for anyone to acknowledge us and it was not busy. I wouldn’t even mind that if it weren’t for the fact that six employees were just standing around talking to each other, while our server was completely overwhelmed. We ordered the mozzarella stuffed avocado and when it came out, it had some kind of meat under it, no mention of which was on the menu. Very strange considering how many people do not eat meat. They apologized and handled that well, but update your menu descriptions! Food was good, not great. Big portions.

My overall experience was great; we visited two days in a row for dinner. I ordered the broiled seafood combination both times. My second visit wasn’t consistent with the first visit. Bake potato and scallops were over cooked. The fish tacos were great both nights. The view was great, the service was good. My only suggestion would be to put a little more effort in the dessert menu. I am going to be a returning customer.

We enjoyed a beautiful sunset dinner. The service was friendly and well timed. Our entrees were the 2 different salmon dishes and the cod. The salmon stuffed with crabmeat was overwhelmed by the rosa sauce. The tropical salmon entree was the better of the two dishes.

Had the seafood combo over linguini. Bland red sauce. Lobster piece was a claw. Wife had the crab cake. A lot of bread filler. Son had chicken parm. Excellent portions

Great addition to OC dining options. Sad to hear they are having difficulties with their dining club concept. Hopefully they can get past those that are opposing!

This has a great location right on the water and it is the only BYOB restaurant in Ocean City, but you pay $15 to join their "club," and the food is truly bad. The crab and artichoke dip was literally inedible. If you still insist on going, the lobster roll was the only good thing we tried.

Atmosphere was terrific - service fabulous!
Food - Not worth the money. Bruschetta was too vinegary.
Seafood pasta – mediocre.

Location is terrific and the sunset was gorgeous! The food was average and overpriced. First endeavor at dinners and the wait staff was very good, the presentation nice but the broiled combination was tasteless. One of our diners loved the salmon but others were disappointed. Won’t go back for dinner.
Breakfast on the other hand is excellent.

This is a dinner club and you are charged in essence an entrance fee. Tables are shielded from views by counter top style seething along water front. Overall not a great place

Great new restaurant in ocnj. Food was amazing, as was the view. Have a 15$ "corkage" fee so you can byob, but they charge it no matter if you bring alcohol or not. Didnt know about this until we arrived.

Thanks for stopping by! We actually charge a $15/dinner club fee which basically allows you to "purchase" the table for 1.5hrs, enjoy a relaxed atmosphere overlooking the water & ability to BYOB if that is your thing! Hope to see you again soon!
