We were there tonight with a group of 8, and it was so wonderful! We had the back corner to ourselves, our server was so friendly and helpful, and the restaurant was so quiet we could enjoy conversation and celebrating a family’s birthday!

View = gorgeous marshlands
Food = wonderful flavors and textures, health conscious selections
Service = "Relaxed" is the kind word :)
But, be prepared to wait and ask for things like refills, but you won't be rushed, so you and your friends can talk forever ;)
So nice to have quality food served with an awesome view, so close to home, so I will, of course, return.

Nice place to go for quiet healthy food. Older crowd

Tasty and healthy food, served with a gorgeous view of wetlands.
Service was very pleasant, maybe a tiny touch slow -- although honestly, we appreciated not being rushed as we three had a lot of catching up to do.
Very nice range of lunch choices, soups, salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, entrees -- and a great little wine list, high quality coffee and teas offered.
Looking forward to having dinner sometime.

The marsh gets fresh fish/seafood each week so always has great fish specials. Scallops for $25 not $38. Usually not too crowded. Cafe area casual but restaurant is quaint. Sometimes servers not the most experienced

A very enjoyable evening. First in the lounge listened to the Jazz band. Dinner to follow in a cozy restaurant. Food very tasty

Has many gluten free and dairy free choices; the physical setting's view is extraordinary

So pleased - We enjoyed the company of good friends and both couples found the place very desirable for a serene evening dinner. The Food was great plus being healthy. Our server was very responsive and very observant of her customers.

Waitress got our bill screwed up, we split the tab & she put the whole thing on one tab

We enjoy the setting of THE MOON ROOM for lunch to take in the marsh view and be able to conduct an amicable conversation. The scallop special always is terrific very tasty and served with seasonal sides. This visit found the bison burger tasteless and the cranberry flourless chocolate cake was to dense for our expectations. Service is outstanding. Enjoyed the coffee and conversation and the setting can't be beat.

I loved the windows overseeing the marsh; it was very serene. I liked that the restaurant wasn't large and noisy but small and quiet. I liked that the menu wasn't pages long but limited to one page. All t he dishes looked wonderful; I am anxious to try others. I couldn't decide between two entrees and asked our waitress for her advice. I went on her recommendation (BBQ chicken sandwich) and was more than pleased with my meal. It was the first time I've ever 'cleaned my plate' at a restaurant; I could have saved some of my sandwich for later, but it was so delicious that I was afraid it wouldn't taste the same warmed up. I even ordered a second sandwich (like mine) as a takeout for my husband back home!

I love the Marsh for dining. Quiet, intimate atmosphere and wonderful view. You are sitting right in nature. Fantastic.

The Marsh is a serene spot to have dinner in a natural marsh setting. There are just a few tables and is usually a quiet spot for an older crowd. The menu is predictable and has enough options to satisfy most of the diners. Sometimes you can be soothed with a musician playing the piano in the next room. Usually there is one waitress serving the dining room so depending on the number of patrons the service can be ample or slow.

I have eaten hear many times and the food has always been great! From what I gather lunch is very busy but every time I have been here for dinner we have been the only ones in the small restaurant. The view of the "marsh" is awesome. As for the food order start off with the crab cakes, some of the best I have ever had.

Flowers on the table, live piano music and flavorful menu selections made a memorable family gathering. Large windows provided plenty of natural light and views of a large marsh during an unhurried meal. The herb mushroom strata and bountiful fresh fruit cup were delicious and healthy. Service was attentive and not intrusive. The little gift for mothers at the end of the brunch was a lovely surprise .

We met friends for dinner and were hoping to be in a nice quiet space to talk. The Marsh was perfect. We loved the lovely view and the quiet atmosphere. It is small and intimate and a great setting for enjoying an evening. The menu had very interesting options that were healthy, fresh, and tasty. It was easy to find things that fit everyone's particular food needs. We look forward to going to the Marsh again soon.

Even though I received a confirmation email about our reservation, they were not ready for us. Thankfully, they were not too busy and could accommodate our group of seven. Our server was excellent.

We had a great view and the food was very good. But there was a table of 8 women who were talking very loudly next to us which required us to shout to be heard.
