    Food was OK with the exception of the fries. They were cold, hard and dry. As if they were made hours earlier and just sat under a heat lamp. Likely will not return.

    Everything here was great. The service staff was excellent, well spoken and easy to understand. They were all very professional and friendly. The food was excellent, I can 't recommend the Garlic Dip enough - it's to die for. The atmosphere was really nice with the marina outside, we were there during sunset and it was gorgeous. They were playing a lot of our favorite music. But it was never so loud that we couldn't hear each other talking. We were down at the far end of the restaurant, so the noise level closer to the bar was probably louder. Prices were very reasonable for what we got. We often go to Olive Garden and end up spending about the same amount that we did here. The portions were on the larger side, which is nice when going to a restaurant where they put some effort into plating.   Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at The Loft and will definitely be returning in the future.
    The Loft RestaurantResponded on October 15, 2023
    Hi Toad, Thank you so much for the wonderful review and 5 stars! The garlic dip is brand new, so we love hearing how much you enjoyed it. We look forward to seeing you again soon, Cheers!

We love coming here at happy hour but to be honest, any time is great at the Loft! Don't forget to order the halibut fish and chips! To die for!

    Dined on the patio at sunset. Beautiful. Had the clam chowder. Nice and hot with a good ratio of clams. Fish and chips were really good with a light tempura-like coating. Wife's chicken sandwich was flavorful and not dry. Fries looked a little overdone based on the colr, but were excellent. Mandy was our server and did a good job despite the Friday night rush.

    Steak was the special of the evening however there was no flavor to the steak and the garlic mashed potatoes were dry with an overwhelming rosemary flavor. We orders two steak dinners of different cuts and had the same experience. Avocado fries however were fantastic. The mocktails were also very good and a great addition to the menu.

    We had 3 different meals & none were good. The Thai salad was very bland & the two different kinds of “tacos” weren’t flavorful. The presentation was good, but it stopped there. Our waitress was too chatty, but did a decent job serving. The garage door type roll-up windows actually blocked our view of the water  unless we lowered our heads down as low as the table top, or raised ourselves off our chairs. There is a wide metal bar connecting the window panes that was in the wrong spot for making water viewing easy! The location is great, but the acoustics are poor. It’s a great spot for happy hour and just grabbing a drink, but would definitely not go back again for dinner. We all live in Seattle and Arizona and were disappointed at the high prices that didn’t match the poor quality food.

    This place is ok. Too expensive for the amount of food you get. Got only three pieces of fish and barely any fries for $23. No blinds and sun shines right in your face. Very very noisy place. I don’t think I’ll come here again. Just not the best vibe.

    We love the loft for lunch and dinner. They strike out with their brunch and breakfast, though. The food is just not that great at this time of day, and we wouldn’t come back here for brunch again. However, like I said before, lunch, and dinner, five stars. Brunch, two stars.

    They have a lot of drinks which is awesome, food is pretty good but some of our dishes would lack a sauce or some additional ingredients to make it wow. But overall pretty good! The location is nice, a lot of light in the restaurant. But the restaurant was very loud. My younger sister was a big scared by people talking so loudly, but if you don’t care about that, then it’s fine!
