    Beautiful setting but food is as not great. My snow crab legs were not fresh and my sweet potato looked like a shriveled up prune. The best thing was the Caesar side salad, cold and crisp. Would not go back.

    We had a reservation and we’re given a call button to wait for a table. 20 minutes later we were seated inside. No one explained why they were not seating outside. Food was fair and waiter was a bit grumpy. Way too noisy.

    The food is always great here. It was our Anniversary & 6 friends joined us. One of the friends told the waitress but she just looked at her peculiarly! But, that's no surprising because this waitress was clearly overwhelmed. We thoroughly enjoyed in spite of the waitress!

    It took 55 minutes to get the oysters appetizers. By 1 hour and 45 minutes we got the entrees. The salad was bitter. The entrees were flavorless except for the clam bake which was good, although some clams were closed, so not cooked enough They brought me the wrong side with my entree and the waitress said is optional to eat it, but did not bring me the right side Will skip it next time in town

    Hardly any parking unless you valet. We have a handicap and there were only 2 handicapped spots already full. We were told that the valet controls those spots! My dish was the “lite “ broiled fisherman’s platter. It did not indicate on the menu that it was just a smaller portion and not broiled with very little butter/oil. It came swimming in oil and had to be sent back to be drained. I had told the waitress ( Crystal) when I ordered it that I wanted it with very little oil/butter. She was on top of everything except a different person delivered the food and would not have known of my request, but the kitchen should have read the ticket. Overall the food was rather tasteless and the restaurant was noisy. We had requested a table by the window when we checked in and were told that there weren’t any. We were seated at a 4 top as a couple. In fact there WAS a 4 top at the window which sat empty for 20 minutes. On our way out I asked the hostess if when I made the reservation if I could have requested a window table. We were told that you can’t reserve a specific table. So why were we denied the window table?

    Great laid back spot with 180 views of bay inside ! Everyone in our party of 9 loved their food. Bouillabaisse, Clam chowder and steamed oysters were delish as were the dirty martinis and rolls. Place was packed but our server was really attentive and nice! Will be back!

    We had a reservation for 5:15. We were seated (finally) at 6:15…an hour later. Our server was lovely but the food was only mediocre. Will not return.
