Had a really nice meal here. We were seated immediately upstairs and had a nice view of the harbor. I really enjoyed the Scallops Rumaki and Flounder Francaise. Our server was attentive, even with having a few large parties.

Had dinner with the family. We decided to try the boathouse instead of Uries. The dinner was average. Nothing super special. We were looking for more seafood choices. Service was ok. Would probably not go again.
