The food was good, I was surprised how bad the service was that day, looked like they were understaffed, we didnt get utensils before our meal, coffee came late, food came at different times

Our server, I think his name was Jackson, but I'm not sure. He is usually the bartender and he wore glasses, but HE WAS OUTSTANDING!! Helpful, funny and took care of every whim and need. We would go back, just to see him again!! And we live 45 min. away!

This restaurant is based around a large outdoor dining area with a view of the marina. Since it was raining, none of the ambience that makes this restaurant special was available to us. However, the food and service were first rate and the prices good. We'll be back when it warms up.

Great outdoor seating with amazing food. From seafood (oysters and spicy tuna tostadas were great) to pizza the food is fresh and prepared well. Good bar and wine menu.

Was pleasantly surprised with our meal here. The food was solid and the location was great. The service was really good; our waiter was very attentive and friendly. We had our kids and parents with us and it appealed to the wide range of palates.

The kitchen does a very nice job on both small and large plates. The noise level is at times unbearable. When the servers open the back doors to the patio area, the wind entering the dining room can be very cold. The service is competent and the house cocktails are well done. Not a place for a romantic dinner, more for large groups who like to speak loudly, even shout as needed.

It was a beautiful outdoor setting perfect for my daughter’s 16th birthday! We invited 10 of her friends for a brunch at Sea Level. The waiters were very attentive and there was a live guitar music. Everyone had a great time. The food was good but the portions were on a small side. Note that they charge the cutting fee of $35 for the cake brought from outside. Overall my daughter was happy so I’m happy :)

Food is very good but not exceptional. Ambiance is awesome except very loud on a Saturday evening, even at 6 pm, hard to converse outside. Beautiful spot, however, with very good service.

What a gem of a restaurant! The view and ambiance are so fantastically nautical, It reminded us so much of Newport, Rhode Island. The food and the drinks continue to impress with delicious, fresh flavors perfect for enjoying on the patio. We can't wait to try more meals here!

It is a Sportsbar, far away from fine dining. The burgers were good. It was too loud, you could not have a normal conversation with this noise.

Great view and overall ambiance. Food was nothing special. Service was fine. Come here for the open air seating and chat with drinks. Save food for somewhere else.

This is a wonderful place to bring guests - nice view, casual, good food, interesting drinks, fun place, lots of activity. Also nice for a casual date.
If you sit outside, be warned if sunny might need hat and sunscreen. If windy, will need a jacket or wrap. On nice days, it is perfect!

So disappointed! The restaurant was beautiful. Everything was perfect-except the actual food. We ordered a lot of food. We wanted to try different things since the menu options were so interesting and we were celebrating. Everything served was bland, either over cook or under cooked. Dishes that should be warm were cold and visa versa. It’s not cheap and we weren’t shocked by that but I left spending 300$ and drove thru in and out on the way home.

Our servers Josh & Jessica were excellent!! Cudos to them! Thank you to the gal on the phone who took my request to seat us nicely outside~very much appreciated! I was upset that I wanted to leave my car there overnight, to get in the morning, after spending quite a bit of money there!! I paid my $6.00 valet, but then they wanted $26.00 to leave it overnight. I think, if you are a paying customer, and you don't want us to get a DUI, you should allow the same price to do so! Sometimes, it happens, and you have more than you intended~trying to be responsible...it would be a nice perk if you helped with that!
