We ate dinner with a beautiful ocean view. I chose artichoke ravioli and my son chose parmesan crusted chicken. Those are typical choices at a fish restaurant, but after a long day of hiking we were wanting something lighter. Both of our choices were delicious and filling.

I went here with my family and we were immediately greeted with an unfriendly host who very rudely said "please read our policy" which basically requested that we monitor our children's behavior. I can understand the request however I found the way it was relayed extremely rude. Then when we requested a window seat we were told none were available... More

Best thing about this restaurant is the astounding view...especially at sunset, from most tables in the place. Food and service are fine...nothing truly unique or special but good. Typical high tourist prices. BUT IF YOU ARE A LOCAL AND CAN PROVE IT WITH ID, ask for the locals menu...three courses...one is boring "chef's choice" desert...often just ice cream. But soup... More

We visited on a very rainy weekend and were extremely grateful to get the kind, attentive service from the staff at this restaurant. Great foods, lots of fish choices. You can look right onto the bay and see the seals and birds playing.

Went just for the clam chowder bowl. So disappointed that a $12.00 bowl of soup was cream of potato. Literally couldn't have had more than a teaspoon of finely chopped clams in entire bowl. The shrimp cocktail was very good and the service was great although I wondered why he didn't ask us if we liked our food. Think he... More

Just looking at pictures and then calling to see how busy I did not expect any special. But special is what is was. The service was wonderful!!! The food delicious. We ate outside - covered and with heaters. Our waiter, Dino, went above and beyond.
