Sadly we had a very poor experience yesterday. As locals we have eaten in the main dining room numerous times over the years! Generally its pretty good... so 9 of us embarked on a family dinner there. The limited menu (that is never consistant) is...More

We went with a Groupon as did a lot of the people there by the looks of it. We were seated and did not get approached for 20 minutes by our waiter. We ordered sushi and waited over 50 minutes for it to be delivered....More

Hello Rdrambuie, I am very sorry to hear about the aspects of your experience that fell flat. Our sushi chefs provide handcrafted dishes to both our Pub and Dining Room, but I admit that 50 minutes is certainly a long time to wait. I will...More

My husband and I enjoyed several breakfasts and dinners in the dining room. My reoccurring comment was, "So good!!". We enjoyed every meal. The service and ambiance was outstanding. Hope to return again for more smoked salmon eggs benny and sushi.

I am three for three. They have great soups and salads. This place is becoming a favorite on my trips to the island. Also coming up from the states it is great to be able to order fresh ice tea.

At the price, we were happy with our choice for dinner. Our server was very good and had some useful wine suggestions to accompany our meal. Ambiance was good, as we were overlooking Brentwood Bay.

Do yourself a favour and skip this place. Really, really...at least until they fire everyone there and do a rehire from the ground up. It's a shame, especially if you're staying at the hotel as we were, because the hotel itself is quite tastefully done...More
