    Although a busy night with New Year’s Eve diners coming and going or settling in to enjoy the music, both service and food were fabulous. The special menu included a prime rib entree, which my husband enjoyed, and a salmon “Wellington” that was perfectly prepared. Cocktails were lovely as well. We left thinking that we need to come to this place more often when looking for a fun evening out. It’s truly a neighborhood gem.

    Shrimp was not fresh, felt rubbery and most likely was frozen at some point. Also had a fishy smell. Wontons were good. Drinks were good.

    Apparently this is a good place for lunch in the summer when you can eat outside in their outdoor seating area but now that it’s fall, we sat inside where it was overly-brightly lit, and extremely noisy. When you walk inside the restaurant, you immediately walk into the bar with high top tables. We asked to be seated at a regular low top table a bit further away from the bar, and we were relegated to this small area that almost seemed like an afterthought. Between the glaring harsh lighting and the loud cackling among all the loud partying drunks at the bar, my husband and I didn’t have a very good experience. The food was good but nothing exceptional. The only positive aspect of our dining experience here was our waitress who was pleasant and attentive. I doubt we’ll ever return.

    During our dinner service, there seemed to be only on waiter for the entire patio. Which she was clearly drowning with the amount of tables. The live music was a nice touch but also a little bit too loud. Would like to be able to talk to the person sitting next to me at a table. Food was okay price was high which I expected for the location but kind hoped the food felt like it was worth the price.

    Once again great food and a beautiful harbor side place to eat, outdoor patio or indoors - where many tables also have a terrific view. This time I had a lamb burger, not my favorite dish but certainly a good choice if you like this and greatly enjoyed by my companions. The salads, calamari, and fish plates have always been great. Very good cocktails too. Finally, our server Savannah, could not be more welcoming and professional.

    Enjoyed dinner with my son. Service and food was good. Only problem was I ordered a glass of Round Hill chardonnay and it was not drinkable. Waitress tasted it and said this is bad. Might have brought me old opened bottle. 2nd glass from fresh bottle was fine.

    Our server was amazing! She was fast, she was friendly and very attentive. You could tell that this place was a locals hang out because they were lots of friendly and boisterous people enjoying their libations. The food was OK nothing remarkable about it, but we will definitely return there for cocktails and great service when we return to the area.

    Lovely location on the water, two patio areas, indoor dining, music. Food was pretty but blah. The $33 short rib was a piece of chuck roast and did not have the taste of the spices and other menu ingredients. Music was nice but the band got moved inside to cater to a private party.
