I had read a few reviews, and was slightly worried, but I have to say, the visit to Sail Loft for a dinner with friends turned out to be very wonderful. This is a place where you need to give yourself leisure time to enjoy. The dinner comes surely, but slowly, which is good since that allows you to enjoy... More

We ended up at Cape quality sfd rest. Which was great. Just look at the reviews your getting why can't... More

Cozy village pub with decent food and good beer on tap. A favorite hang out of local sailors and visiting yachtsmen as well. Located right at South Wharf in the heart of Padanaram. Accessible by water!

My wife and I went to this restaurant for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised. We ate on the veranda and our waitress, Colleen, was very pleasant and professional. The food was outstanding.

Last night my friend and I went here for a drink or should I say TRIED to go here for a drink and appetizer or two. Despite asking three different employees for service, we were continually ignored and excuses were made as to why we were not getting service. "Oh, I will send someone over in a minute"...or they just... More

Both the deck and the dining room look west out over Padanaram Harbor and, with proper timing, give access to lovely sunsets. We appreciated it when the kitchen divided our lettuce wedge into 2 without asking, and did the same with our shared dinner. Service was prompt and attentive, the meat entrees prepared rare as requested and the house red... More

Ha an excellent experience at Sail Loft last evening, leaving me wondering why it only rates #10 out of 12 restaurants. We had not been there in a couple of years, the place was crowded, parking was difficult. Bar was very busy. The deck dining would have been quite a wait so we ate inside. Dining on the deck is...
