Great turkey dinner... complete with all the finins! Finished the whole thing! Tables spaced far apart. Service a little slow (as usual), but I wasn't in a hurry - didn't mind. Good value for the money.

We had to wait several minutes just to be greeted. The food was terrible. The mussel appetizer and salads are good. But the entrees are not good. They recommend their stuffed salmon, which is awful. It’s difficult to eat. I dont think they use any seasoning.

Our waiter was very attentive. The food was good. But we ordered off the happy hour menu, and was not told that the happy hour menus only applies if you sit at the bar. I would say that in overall value of the food you got four the price it was poor. I would not go back

We must have had the B-team in the kitchen as the co-vid continues to plague us here in the district. My sister and I ventured out to this stand by hoping to forget our boring meals at home. We felt safe as there were only our table and one other in the dining room. I've always like the ambiance of the place and have many happy memories of eating there but sad to say, we were both underwhelmed by our lunches. We both had the Bass being the fish of the day. It was under-cooked and chewy and the same could be said for the green beans (except that there was more chewing involved!). Okay, we are both over 60 yrs. old and have never understood the fad for near raw green beans. We did ask for another serving so that we could digest the GB's but they were only mildly better. The drinks from the bar were devoid of personality and sister's Mimosa came in a sticky champagne flute looking very sad. May I say the service was excellent and we were happy to get out of the house but...

Service was excellent. Calamari appetizer came with approximately 50% random tempura covered vegetables, presumably to reduce food costs. Salmon entree was undercooked.

Not sure why, but after showing for my reservation and having dinner, the next day the restaurant sent a message that I was not eligible for any points. They gave no reason.

There was no one there, and the metal grid was down. No luck after being rained out Friday! I deferred my bonus points because I am afraid to try again.

They closed suddenly because of a storm as I arrived. I had another reservation yesterday at 6:45 PM, but no one was there and the grid was down in front of the restaurant.
