We came here for an anniversary dinner. We had great service and great food. The best lobster bisque I have had in awhile. The gambas and grits is perfection.

When you check into the hotel you are offered a voucher for breakfast for about 7 dollars i think. The restaurant is very nice, clean, the servers were great and the food was good.

This was my first visit, and I ordered lasagna, which was delicious. Great wine selection, too. It's a small, quaint restaurant, great service, and yummy food. I'll go back again!

This isn't a 'seafood' restaurant. There are usually two seafood items and they are excellent. If you want a predominately seafood restaurant with four or five fresh catches every day, try Caps on the Water.
