Mother’s Day, regular breakfast, not the buffet. Everything was excellent except they were out of three items that we would have ordered.

We had heard the food was hit or miss, so we weren't surprised when the medium-rare ordered ribeye was cooked medium well. The salmon the fellow at the next table had was tough as leather. The fish and chips were good, coleslaw needed something.

I've dined here on a couple occasions. The food is always good. This time, I made a reservation via open table, and stated it was a special occasion for someone celebrating their 85th birthday, and I wanted the best table. When we arrived, no one seemed aware of this, though it didn't really matter because it was practically empty. Still.

Given that it was practically empty, the service was incredibly slow. I ordered a G&T and expected it to be served in a tall narrow glass with a straw, but it was served in an old-fashioned and when I asked about a straw she said they don't have straws because of the plastic. I understand being eco-friendly, but it was very difficult to enjoy an otherwise great G&T without a straw. I don't enjoy ice hitting my face and making it difficult to sip.

Despite these perhaps small issues, I left a handsome tip because that is who I am. The food and drinks (we had champagne, wine and Irish coffees, mine with a splash of Baileys) were all excellent.

One thing I wonder is why none of the local restaurants seem to serve crab. I would like to see that on the menu. Ajax did serve crab on occasion.

We had a group of five for St. Patrick's Day and it was great. Notwithstanding a large crowd the service was great and the special food offerings were tasty and in keeping with the holiday. We also enjoyed the Irish whiskey trio and delicious chocolate mousse.

Very pleased and surprised. This was our first time here and we were unsure what to expect. Fortunately, it was an excellent overall experience. The view out over the marina and bay was gorgeous. The room itself was light and spacious. Wine list was varied and reasonable with some interesting selections. We settled on a very appealing chardonnay which we enjoyed. I ordered the herb crusted pork loin which was cooked exactly the way I had asked. My wife ordered the prosciutto and fontina stuffed chicken which she loved for the use of herbs as well as the wonderfully flavored rice. The service was excellent. Our server friendly, welcoming and attentive. All in all, this was a really enjoyable dinner and we will certainly be back.

Our second visit for dinner. Great food and service both times ! We had almost decided not to try it again since trying it for breakfast was not good at all and same quality as the dinner. Glad we tried again as the dinner experience was wonderful.

We were at a special Valentine's Day pre-fixe dinner. Service was slow although very friendly and helpful. I ordered a filet medium rare with jumbo prawn on top. The steak was well-done and the prawn was raw. Then came the dessert - creme brulee which was frozen. I am not going to go back again.

This venue has seen better days.

The gravlax was disappointing. While the salmon was cured well, there wasn't much of it. The toasted bread points were extremely dry, hard and brittle. With each bite the toast fragmented uncontrollably sending crumbs all over the table.

The steaks were good sized and well prepared.

The bread pudding was generous and tasty.

The service was almost what was expected, although I was a bit put off by the server's use of
the phrase "you guys," as in "Are you guys ready to order?"

I would much prefer that the word "guys" be banished from all servers' vocabulary. A simple "Are you ready to order?" is much preferable.

Great dinner specials. The filet was tender, juicy, and cooked to perfection with excellent sides of potatoes and asparagus. Salads, Soups, Drinks and Desserts were generous. A sub-par Caesar salad was taken off the bill. The kitchen said the dressing was not up to their norm but was served anyway --to our dismay. Service was not as expected for this class of restaurant. Server stated right away that she had been there almost twelve hours then returned for our order and forgot her pencil. No automatic water or bread refills. Dinner was rushed.
BUT ambiance was great. View was great. Would not let these issues deter us from coming back but service should have been better as it was a slow night for the restaurant.

We actually had a table for four and our guests from Chicago absolutely raved about it and in comparison to the "Windy City" the prices were reasonable yet the food was great. also several outstanding vegetarian dishes.

Would love to know what was on the pork loin. The most wonderful spice...cant place it....

We enjoyed a marvelous meal with two other couples on New Year's Eve. Food was great and service was terrific despite it being a very busy night. The crab cake salad was a big hit.

Far too expensive considering the quality of food and service. Poor ambience, pathetic background music.

It was a super evening with friends from back east, who raved about the food and ambiance. The service was outstanding and the light guitar music in the background made it a perfect evening. Chef Albert also visited our table. The historic property was all dressed up in its Christmas finery with a beautifully decorated tree in the lobby. I can certainly see why they received FIRST PLACE for their steaks. All three guys really enjoyed them!

I liked my cod but everyone else was disappointed. Prime ribs were over salted cut and then grilled? We guess to warm the cut up? Salmon and scallops had way to much butter. Good beer and wine selections. Look l Ike great cocktails. Room next to dining room is under construction or storage or something and all the lights are on so that what you get to look at. They even had curtains but they were open so you are looking at junk. Anyway, I guess they reopened recently so they are obviously still fine tuning.

We had driven by the Old Alcohol Plant many times, but never stopped to eat until recently. Once we were greeted and seated the service was great. We started with an interesting and flavorful salad. I had the prosciutto stuff chicken breast with Marsala mushrooms and rice. It was wonderful. My husband had steak. We both commented that we would order our respective dishes again and return to the restaurant.

The view out towards Port Townsend and Indian Island is nice.

Pork tenderloin with apples, excellent.

Outstanding dinner, service and amazing appetizers. The scallop risotto was terrific. Enjoyed the live background music, as did our guests from Carmel and NYC.

One of few restaurants in the area located along the water, a real plus. The service was okay, the food was good. Friends & I gathered to visit hard to do because there was a vocalist seated right by our table playing a guitar. He should have been placed near bar. Hard to conduct conversation. Suggest a pianist NO vocals or NO music at all.

Nice setting with non intrusive soothing live background music. Delicious cuisine including perfectly done steaks, and salmon. Appetizers like the pork belly and fried calamari were also well enjoyed. Wine list included many varietals and price points. Special dietary requirements were taken care of as well. Pleasant gem in the area.

Beautiful view. Quaint surroundings. Soup and side dishes were good. Rib eye looked more like pounded round steak : 10 oz, flavorful but very thin and tough. Service was very good. Quite pricey for what you get. Nice for the area. Would go back and NOT order steak.

They featured an authentic Argentinian barbecue and it was outstanding and great service. The music and dancing made it the perfect night.

The hotel and restaurant are so unique and charming. I loved the view of the bay while I ate dinner. My pork loin was very flavorful and beautifully plated. I was very impressed! They have live music on Friday and Saturday nights and I shall return.

It was a buffet and some of the food was cold and/or dried out. It must have been setting out for a long time.
