When we arrived around 7:45 pm the hostess asked if we wanted to sit on the patio which we did. However instead of taking us to a table, she just told us how to get there. After waiting for about 10 minutes another worker noticed...More

Went for lunch. The view is gorgeous but the food does not live up to the view. The chicken sandwich was average. The steak on the kabob was tough and not cooked as ordered.

We just got off the whale watching trip, exciting to actually see whales and a little hungry. Wind and Sea perfect. Right there on the wharf. Server recommended a few things that were light and it was perfect. Great service, great server and ambiance.

The staff was very attentive and my clam chowder was great. Sitting on the patio next to the harbor was beautiful scenery, however, I could not hear the sea lions because the restaurant's music coming from the speakers was so loud and obnoxious. Maybe a...More
