This restaurant has always been one of my favorites but the food, service and restaurant itself were more then disappointing this time. So bad I’ll probably never go back again.

We’ve gone here several times and was really hoping for a table next to the water but we got a great booth and our waitress was one for a previous visit and great. I had the lobster crusted Chilean sea bass but didn’t taste any lobster and smelled ammonia every time I cut into it so a little disconcerting but I ate it all. However for the price I won’t have it again. Also we had Lobster ravioli and that was heavy pasta and didn’t taste the lobster either. Everything else was great best part was appetizers. I don’t believe we will be going back anytime soon as there are other seafood restaurants that are better.

Everything was delicious. The Crab. -avocado tower appetizer was outstanding. My salmon was great and the rice medley side was a perfect compliment.

Unfortunately there was a party/event going on upstairs which started about halfway through our meal and the loud music from upstairs was distracting.

Appetizer crab/avocado/mango tower was amazing. Entrees were not horrible but mediocre at best. Service was horrible! The waitress had zero enthusiasm, zero personality and clearly hated her job. She did not even come back to ask how the food was or ask if I wanted grated cheese.

We live close come all the time,

Crab shells in the crab avocado tower, along with Avacado skin on some pieces.

Ordered the t-bone special was clearly a very poor cut of meat, stated the dish was made with chives and bacon with side of mashed and asparagus. No bacon, and random strings of cheese in the potatoes.

Server was slow and other groups were visibly irritated with slow service and lack of checking in.

Took 3 asks to receive the check.

After returning two nearly full plates of food after a few bites, making a note to the server and then acknowledging the issues, NOTHING, was taken off the bill.

Paid $165+ for a glass of wine and a few asparagus stalks.

No manager came by, will be leaving reviews elsewhere, sad to see the drastic difference in service, feel free to contact me about the meal.

Our server was not attentive at all. She focused on her other table behind us and we got ignored . She never came back and we had to ask 3 times for our check.

We had a good experience, the view was great and the ambience as well. The manager was attentive. Food was very good, had the filet mignon and it was delicious, would have preferred less mashed potatoes and more vegetables, but the steak itself was excellent. Service was ok, few times I wished they had been more attentive, water glasses were never refilled for the duration of our dinner. Points lost there. Overall, it was a fair experience, a little below my expectations. Always love the view though which is important to me.

Their fish is not wild caught and their prices are too high for farm grown. We ordered mussels and it didn’t come with the bread- which we had to mention it to the waitress. Thought it would of been a better experience. Would prob not come here again.

Came with a reservation. Had a big issue when checking in, the hostess outside said they don’t allowed dog OUTSIDE, I should check in with the hostess inside (and BTW I made a reservation on open table and did not allowed me to make reservations choices for outside or inside like we we have in NYC), then I went in and said I have a reservation, and the hostess right away told me they don’t allowed dogs (BTW I owned a shih tzu which weight 7 LBS) and start to argue.
Nobody ask me if I have a service dog card or anything, which I had on me…so it end up that I had a anxiety attack and went to the bathroom, my daughter ((17) went to the table they finally decide to give us
So I finally sat down to the table, with no appetite anymore because I was still upset, ordered a lobster bisque which came cold and not that great, my daughter’ pasta was not good either
At least the manager came to apologize and offered us free desserts BUT IT WAS TOO LATE…I just wanted to get out of there
So please an advice: definitely this place needs to work on their customers service

We were taken right to out table. Our waitress greeted us immediately and everything was wonderful.
They proceeded to seat 3 large parties in our servers area and once our dinner was served to us, she was so busy with the other tables she did not come back to see if we needed anything or a refill of our water.
I do not fault the server but I do fault the hostesses for seating too many large parties in one servers area.

We had the swordfish which was delicious. The waiter gave us plenty of time without interruption. We asked for some extra sauce. He delivered it promptly in a small dish with no questions asked. The raspberry tart was also a nice way to sweetly end our meal.

Too long in between appetizers and entrees- almost an hour. Many people sat after us and got food a lot faster. Our waitress took a long time to attend to us. Service was horrible. Our reservation was for 7:30 and we left at 9:45. Way to long. The food was excellent as always. McLoones does a better job in the winter.

What a disappointment. I understand the service challenges, but the food was sub par and over priced. The steak was over cooked, the hamburger under cooked and the sea bass rubbery. The steak and sea bass were not $42 dishes. Maybe downscale and take on what you can handle because it was a terrible experience overall. And your competitors on the same boardwalk somehow figured it out so I can’t chalk it all up to pandemic impact. I would not go back.
