We go 2-3 times per month and usually eat in the bar. Since Cheyenne has become the chef, the menu is changed quarterly and has lots of choices. I loved the fried oysters from the Fall menu, and cried when they took them off. The calimari is great, as well as, the duck confit. The entrees are amazing along with... More

The Bistro is the place to go for fine dining. It is not the place to take children. Offers an outside patron with great views of the bluff. Nice place for quiet romantic dinners.

Good food, prepared fresh. Nice wine and beer choices. During the summer you can dine alfresco on the patio off of the dining room.

We stayed at the hotel and ate here the first night merely for convenience. We came back the second night because the first night's food was so good.

If you want fine dining in a room where you can hear what is being said, look no further. This is the best dining restaurant in Harbor Country. Don't let the Lawrence Welk - style decor fool you. The food is creative, carefully prepared and delicious. We sampled all the appetizers -- not a bad one in the lot. The... More

Well, we definitely agree with her! The atmosphere is warm with a great deal of nice woodwork making the restaurant very cozy and inviting. Our... More
