Wonderful service. Food was excellent. Atmosphere was enjoyable even on a rainy day. I had out of state guests visiting for first time and they enjoyed everything about their dining experience. Cocktails were also great and water was offered as bottled or ice water which was appreciated and refilled as often as necessary.

Couldn’t make a broiled lobster even though they had it on the menu. I didn’t think it was possible that a seafood restaurant didn’t know how to make a broiled lobster.

Went here the weekend of the Newport Powerboat Show twice. Once for dinner with my husband and the next day for lunch with a client. Food is always great, nice views of the water, and very friendly staff. Love it!

We had a reservation for a 4; we arrived on time and were seated right away. The service was excellent; every meal was outstanding. There were plenty of seafood choices as well as a few other choices which was great because one person in our party does not eat seafood; her pork chop dish was delicious.

So upset, when I made the reservation I forgot to mention it was my boyfriend’s birthday, so I called the restaurant and they put the birthday on the reservation,
The day of the reservation, I was running late and called and changed the time and for the 2nd time mentioned the Birthday.
When I showed up, for. 3rd time mentioned the reservation to the hostess.
The waiter wasn’t busy, it was 3:00 in the afternoon and the restaurant was not busy at all.
NOTHING, we got the check and paid the bill. I asked the hostess what happen and she said she forgot.
I am traveling and haven’t seen him in 4 weeks, this was supposed to be a special occasion, I had to leave and won’t see him again for a month.
Absolutely disgusted , disappointed.
3 Times I asked!!!!

We were a group at six who went for lunch at this restaurant. We were in a rush because we had a tourist starting an hour after we arrived. Of the server was very attentive to our needs, the food was excellent and the view was lovely. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious meal and a beautiful setting.

We arrived at the restaurant and waited for the Maitre'd to seat us. He was not very friendly and seated a couple before us who had know reservation. The food we ordered was adequate at best. We ordered the special a yellow fin tuna wrap which was full of arugula and the tuna was stringy and tasteless. The waiter went above and beyond to make our experience one to remember. I selected this restaurant due to tripadvisors advice and find that all these restaurants are highly overated.

The food was absolutely amazing (as it usually is) and Jennifer was a very efficient and pleasant server. She was a joy. The restaurant was obviously busy with the initial set up for the annual boat show, but service and food quality did not suffer as a result.
