The food was ok the view of the river is nice but had to set in a very noisy bar with a bunch of drunk business men to have a table to view it. Might be better in the summer when the outdoor area is open. Very nice server.

We enjoyed our dinner. Michelle, our server, was very nice and took great care with our order. There are many gluten free options available, including GF buns. My kids loved the plain burger, my fish was cooked perfectly and tasted good (after I took off the mediterranean topping which I didn't care for). We wished we could have eaten in... More

We used to make a 30-mile trek to this restaurant for the nautical décor, excellent seafood and dinner on the boat in the lobby, but the past few years have shown a decline in quality, value. Now that we live in the area, we were hoping for the same experience of years past. t's disappointing.

First time for me but the others in our party told me that it was a great restaurant. The view is very nice and the store in the lower level has interesting items. We decided to have dinner in the bar area to listen to the band they had that night. The band was excellent and the atmosphere is conducive... More

So delicious. It's not on the menu anymore but the lobster Edwardo is so delicious. The lobster bisque soup so good, and the stuffed mushrooms are fabulous. Just loved it!

I treated my son to a pound of crab legs...$65 and they were awful. I had lobster and it was tough and hard to eat. In the freezer too long? While the waitress was very nice she wasn't very attentive. Rushing right past with a stack of dishes without checking on us. The food was slow to come out.
