There were five men and women taking advantage of Happy Hour and enjoying the opportunity to get to know each other better!

Met a group of high school girlfriends for a wonderful lunch at the Wind and Sea restaurant. View from the glass windows around the dining room was gorgeous and we couldn't of picked a more beautiful day. Waitress was very attentive and cheerful. Sandwiches were delicious and thickly stacked with lunch meat.

This is a great place to sit and relax on a Friday (or any) Happy Hour. Get there early to snag a waterside table. Good food, killer MaiTais. Definitely try the artichoke. They should put the artichoke on the Happy Hour menu .... just sayin'.

Food was excellent but service only mediocre. Super busy time so service and attentiveness a little less than desired.

Visited this restaurant with my entire family this past Sunday and I have to say, we had an exceptional time! Our server (Maddy) was the kindest, most generous and helpful person and we were very grateful she was helping us with our orders on that day since it was quite crowded and we are a big family!

We had a large group of 8 for dinner reservations at 6:30pm, they had good service for all of us, food was very good, Mahi-Mahi Fish was very good. Drinks were OK (light) and Wine/Beer better quicker!! Views were ok for large group.. Better Views for groups of 2 - 4!!

I could write at length about how lousy my meal was, but I'll post the short version. There were four of us and our food arrived at different times. I sent one back, and asked to talk to the kitchen manager, who was a smug jerk (I'm being reserved). Lousy. Don't go.

The food and martinis were enjoyable. The sun was down, but watching boats go through the channel added to the evening. Live music was excellent. This was the beginning of a visit from my adult daughter and a good start for our time together.

We went for lunch. A clean restaurant. Excellent service. We sat overlooking the water. Enjoyed seeing paddle boarders and seal playing in the harbor. Food was just right for lunch. Fresh and well prepared. Nice for dining
