We visited this hotel for a pre dinner drink as a group of ladies on a girls weekend away. We would have had a meal but we hadn't pre booked and the place was full. It made great atmosphere for our cocktails before dinner.

We stopped in on a chilly and sunny winter day. The service was great. The seafood chowder was delicious. Oysters were superb. Good place to relax and eat. Nice views also. I would definitely return next time I am up there.
