We had a group of our friends in from California and Louisiana to visit the island and share the beautiful fall views with our friends who have never traveled to the island!
Due to the size of our group, 9, we chose the Bistro!
Understanding the last weekend on the island it’s expected that restaurant and store inventories are thin.
What’s not expected is to be treated like you’re bothering or imposing on a business!
The staff was rude, arrogant, obnoxious!

Embarrassing for such a great day and to have our close friends experience this treatment!

Lesson learned, and thankfully there are many great alternatives to chose from on our next visit!

Not worth the wait.
Way understaffed, 45 minute wait even with reservation, kitchen fire smoked up the whole restaurant, staff screaming at patrons, lots of unavailable menu and drink options. The music was stuck on a loop of a really obnoxious song with no words. At least the food was ok.

Mary's fell below our expectations...however, food was good! The light fixtures are bright white which was very harsh, and we expected --despite COVID measures--for it to be a warm and inviting place, with some water view (ideally.) We were seated in the middle...in a service/restroom traffic pattern...and thus we felt as though we were dangling. Service was ok -- hosting could have been more friendly. There were some really loud tables around us. In short, our party of 2 felt very out of place! I would not go back.

Hubz didn't like the chicken pot pie and only ate about 2 bites, but was not reimbursed (even half?) for it.
Fish and chips was fish and fries and was good.
80s female rock music fairly loud and 80% of guests were female.
Not overwhelmed, considering how many other choices there are on island.

Our server was top notch. I think his name was Ryan. The truffle fries were fantastic and the shaved steak sub with shiitake mushrooms was wonderful. And I won't forget the Moscow mule. Would totally recommend this place if you are visiting the Island.

Service was very good. Pizza was tasty - loved the thin crust. Hot Pretzels were good. Wide variety of beers to pick from. Bar type atmosphere on the water, but can’t see much from inside. Not sure the way advanced reservation helped - they seat first come first served.

The food is very good but for being on Open Table they sure did not care about our party having a reservation. I made our reservation for 2 at 11 am right when they opened. A line had formed that was quite long waiting for the doors to open and when the hostess came out to open the doors I walked up and mentioned we made a reservation for 11am. She told me we would just have to wait in line and that’s ‘just how we do it here’ soooo what’s the point then of people making reservations???? So other than our reservation being useless and her being a bit rude, the server we had was very nice and the food was very good.

They have a QR code as their “no touch menu” but it wouldn’t open on our phones. We told this to our server, but she never came back! She walked by us numerous times. We finally got tired of watching her ignore us, so my husband went to the bar to order drinks, and only then, our “server” FINALLY paid attention to him - but with a rude/impatient comment about how she has “so much going on!”
The front desk was unorganized and unfriendly as well.
It’s surprising and frustrating that they think it’s okay to treat customers/guests in this manner?!
We walked out after that, and went over to the Pink Pony, where we enjoyed a lovely delicious meal at the bar with a fantastic and personable bartender/server, whom we tipped well. Don’t waste your time at Mary’s Draught House! Other places on the island will appreciate your business!!

We loved the food. We thought it was a bit strange to start. The menu wouldnt open on our phones. Kept saying no connection. Instead of offering us menus the waitress kept telling us to keep trying. In fact... she came back 3 times to check and when we still couldnt... there was no offer of a hard copy of a menu. I wondered how long it would take before she offered. She never did. Once the people waiting for the ferry left and stopped using their wifi (thats the problem)... the menu did open. But... if you are going to have an open wifi... everyone waiting for the ferry is gonna use it and then your actual patrons cannot. Just didnt make a lot of sense.

RUDEST hostess I have ever met in my life. I’m a pretty well traveled person and this girl NEEDS some customer service lessons, BAD!!! This establishment changes your reservation times, then when you show up, for the time you had reserved on OPEN TABLE, tells you oh sorry, your reservation has passed the grace period. They do this without you knowing. I have proof on my phone that my reservation was changed. I will never step foot in this place again! Go down the street to HORNS, the hostess was so much accommodating and kind, and the service was amazing.

Appetizers were best part of meal even though they serve a grilled caesar salad but don’t have anchovies.

Entrees were disappointing. Chicken pot pie had little chicken and an unappetizing crust.

Fish and chips were soggy

We were seated promptly. Service was quick and friendly. Server kept us continuously informed on our food and drinks. Food was outstanding! We had a party of 4, and we all cleared our plates! Chicken tenders (best I’ve ever had) with truffle fries; chicken pot pie; chicken salad on a croissant; and macaroni and cheese with pulled pork. All excellent!

Very rude service , slow service and sarcastic waiters . Not attentive . Serving sizes were RIDICULOUSLY small for money! For example , a $22 fish fry included a. 1”x3” piece of fried fish - yep- ONLY 1 piece - surrounded by a mountain of fries. The pulled pork had a few strands of pulled pork.

Thankful that I made reservations for every meal on the weekend we went to the Island. It was so busy and every restaurant had 2 hour wait limits for those without reservations.

I loved this restaurant. We were seated near large windows overlooking the lake and their outdoor seating area - such a great view. Our server was fun and knowledgeable. She really gave us the impression that she loved her job and that really makes a restaurant comfortable.
It was a casual setting, no fussy heals or ties were needed. The food and cocktails were amazing. I’d definitely go again. Unfortunately it would take me 6 hours to get there. :)

Food was very good and waiter was very good. The start of our experience was horrible! We walked into the bar to have a drink and the bartender (female) was very rude telling us we had to go sit at a table as three were not allowed at the bar. She commanded us and it was not a nice response. So we went to the table and the other bartender(male) came over and said pointing at my daughter “is she 21”? I said no and he said”can you read the sign”? Pointing at the sign that stated you had to be 21. I would of walked out, but since we made the reservation I thought we would keep it ,as it is very hard to get into a restaurant without a reservation on the island. The food was good and the waiter was very nice. When I left I complained about the female bartender first and was told “oh that’s just her”. At that point it was not even worth the rest of the story. Never going back!
