Came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and was greeted with complimentary sparkling wine. The staff and food were incredible. They even comped us a dessert for our special occasion. They also 100% comply with CDC guidelines as far as social distancing goes for Covid. An amazing experience! Cheese biscuits are a must!

As with all other restaurants they have to adapt and eating is "al fresco". It is a nice change since that's not as easy of an option pre-pandemic. Food was excellent and I actually forgot how good the biscuits were so this was a nice refresher. The menu is a bit smaller because of everything but I had the steak with veggies, dad had the halibut, and girlfriend has lamb. All plates were cleaned! Service was attentive and very friendly! highly recommend!

Good was great. Every time we sat down the staff moved an umbrella so we were in the sun. We moved seats 3 times. Brought our breakfast 10 mins apart instead of together. Service so so. Hostess awesome! Food great as always. No mention of birthday.

Had a RSVP for our anniversary and we got there before our scheduled time. Several other parties arrived well after us and were seated first. They pointed to a table and told us they were busing it and would seat us soon. We waited 20 minutes and when they finally tried to seat us, it was at the worst table that had been open since we arrived. We told them we didn’t want that table and they moved us after having to wait again.

The host was not friendly and repeated twice about our time limitation. We called and said we’d be 10 minutes late and she said if we still wanted to proceed because there’s a time limitation. When we arrived 10 mins late, she repeated about the time limitation.

We were seated at a table where we couldn’t move the chairs much (light pole right behind the chair on the sidewalk) so we asked to move. She moved us to a table that was on an incline, which was very uncomfortable. They should not have a table there...

Service staff tried their best. However, my food was served without utensils and plates. I had to ask for them.

Enjoyed a super Sunday brunch dining on Eggs Benedict, Chimichanga, and crispy Red Bliss Taters. Can’t beat the outdoor dining scene by the beach and these dishes tasted splendid. The local Citrus Fruit Plate with Buttermilk Softserve was the dessert highlight of freshness!! Outstanding service from our very professional Angela makes MB Post the place to hang out in MB!!

Food never disappoints here. The wine list is a bit pricey. I always have a hard time paying $20+ for a glass. Our server was lovely and they did a very nice job of spacing out the tables and making the outdoor seating look like it was part of the restaurant.

We were running late and the hostess was great about it. Food was delicious and fresh, chef himself came out to talk to us, and our waitress was awesome. We had the hamachi appetizer, asparagus/burrata toast, skirt steak with amazing sauce, and halibut. Couldn’t have been much better

Would love it if they would bring back the Brancaia Ilatria to the wine menu for Fall!

Steve gave great service and the Nashville fried chicken was generous and crisp, if not spicy. Those cheddar biscuits never fail to please and the potato salad was better than average. All outdoors, no less!

excellent menu selections and the wine and drink options were fantastic. Would certainly go again to try other items on the menu. Our server in training was amazing, and I thought she was a pro at suggestions. The entire service staff was spot on and timely.
Truly made my 60th birthday with my beautiful girlfriend memorable.
