    The blackened group and whole red snapper were delicious. Disappears no bread offered before the meal and the fact that most of the entrees on the menu had no pricing, just MKT. in addition the server didn’t indicate the prices of our order and it’s somewhat demeaning to have to ask, so we preferred not to do so.

    Wonderful atmosphere. Service was attentive and not overwhelming. We were 10 minutes away from a special we were not even aware of. Server was informative but respectful of our timing. Overall, a lovely and unexpected experience on a brief visit to the area. Highly recommend and I would love to try for lunch as well.

    The food was pretty good. The wait staff we had was great. The ambiance, not so much. We were sat outside and it was extremely windy and chilly. We requested they drop the wind curtains or add a heater. About 5 minutes before leaving they brought one single heater - positioned more for the table next to us. No offer to move us or effort to add heaters earlier was made. That lack of attentiveness with this issue was rather disappointing. One in our party ordered a salad for dinner, it was brought out as a pre dinner salad. The food was good but presentation was lacking. The waiter we had was extremely kind, friendly and really the only thing that saved the night. The restaurant in general needs some sprucing up. The lighting was way too bright indoors for a “cozy, fine dining” atmosphere. The outside terrace was not well kept or inviting. Overall, we went looking for a new “go to” as we are local and constantly entertain out of town family and friends. We left knowing that in its current state, it will not be on the list.

    We really enjoyed our lunch. The food was very good, and the portions were large. We ordered wine, and one of the servings was not what we ordered. Other than that our experience was very pleasant. We would definitely go again, and will go again when we come back to the area.

    Food is very good and innovative. Service was excellent. The ambiance needs some work. We ate dinner when it was dark out. There is no exterior lighting on the adjacent surf so you could not see anything. Presumably a better "vue" during later daylight hours in summer or for lunch. Interior is bright white with very bright lighting, not a relaxing combination. Dining tables are immediately adjacent to the bar which can be noisy.

    I really wanted to like this place but was very disappointed. We had a reservation and arrived 20 minutes early. Although the restaurant was extremely empty and our table was readily available they didn’t seat us until 10 minutes past our reservation time. Waiting for a server we decided upon ordering an appetizer. The calamari was very bland and minimal in quantity . When my entree of shrimp and scallops arrived again a big failure. There were 3 scallops and 3 overly fried shrimp on a plate. The shrimp were definitely not fresh as they had a fishy smell and mushy texture. At a cost of $42 for this entree is was certainly not a value. We opted not to get dessert after the first two disasters. Unfortunately I can’t give this restaurant my seal of approval.

    Property overlooks the beach and facility was clean and modern. Large bar area with seating to have drinks while you wait. Made reservations and they were honored timely. Service was capable. My companion and I had the fresh catch special (Grouper) and we both enjoyed it tremendously. One of the better dining experiences we have had in the area. We will return.

    Food was mediocre and underwhelming -filet with fingerling potatoes was slathered in a brown horseradish sauce that looked like gravy and the potatoes were potato wedges. The filet was also charred, so I am not sure if that is why they slathered the sauce over it. Crab cakes appetizer were small and could have been cooked longer. Batter fell off of Battered Shrimp and scallops with risotto entree. The deep fried brownie a la mode stated like grease. My stomach has never been so upset after eating as it was today. Hostess, Server, and wait staff/busser were all friendly and welcoming. The location and view were beautiful, but the bathrooms were outdated.

    The view was amazing as this restaurant sits right on the ocean! Our server was very friendly and the food was great! We had the seafood platter, some salads and the fish sandwich. The prices at lunch are very reasonable…looks like the dinner prices are more expensive, but not too high for the area and caliber of restaurant. If you’re on a budget, lunch is the way to go. Also, be sure and make reservations early during the busy season!

    The food was a solid ok .. I had the shrimp and scallops, scallops were great, fried shrimp coating seemed a little heavy but the disappointing part is the risotto was the consistency of sticky rice (creamier would see more normal) and the amount of rice and veg was inadequate vs the shrimp and scallops (no I don’t mean serve less shrimp and scallops 🤨) My wife had the veg pasta with lobster which was great That is generally our vue experience .. good enough food, good enough service .. a few tweaks and it would have been great Yes we will be back
