Because this restaurant advertised a Sunday roast beef special, we arrived at 7 pm and were very disappointed when the taciturn waitress told us that they had run out. Other diners arrived shortly after us and were given the same news, delivered in an unapologetic...More

Prebooked a reservation. Seated promptly and attended promptly. Each ordered an appetizer and tried each. All enjoyed. Entrees were served hot and were delicious. Beautiful view of bay. An enjoyable evening.

Great food and location. The flatbread wedges were great, and the seafood chowder is a must. We are here twice on our trip, service was hit or miss

Surroundings are great, food was terrible. My wife's meal was passable, mine was supposed to be a Curry. There was absolutely no hint of Curry in that meal! NONE! We will not go back there!

Food great, excellent view of the bay, and helpful staff. You can have your food delivered to your room. There is the inside or outside of restaurant, all with great views. Inside is a small but nice, sports bar.
