This restaurant and staff are so professional and personal. The food, drinks, conversations and service are "just right".

I tried this restaurant at the advice of the B&B innkeeper. I'm glad I did & returned the next night for a repeat dinner with a friend. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of my Panini and how stuffed it was. I can eat & it was difficult to finish the sandwich. The next night, because we were dining... More

Wasn't really sure, walking in on a Saturday evening at 8 and there were no other guests. Turns out everyone in town was down at the local fireworks show. The atmosphere is a little rustic and staff is very friendly, if a little rustic as well. The food and the service were both excellent. Absolutely fresh ingredients, expertly handled and... More

We have eaten here many, many times for family and business meals because we loved the food, the view, and the atmosphere. That being said, we have recently noticed a decline in the service and the quality of the food. We've spoken to the management, but unfortunately, we were not convinced that things are going to change. Truly unfortunate!

Stopped by along our way from VT to ME. Took a chance and was rewarded with a satisfying lunch. We had a salad w steak tips (yum). There is a view of water in the back. Place was comfortably AC'd. Waitress was attentive and friendly. We were sat immediately.

Went to 11 water street for a business dinner. I ordered the bistro steak medium rare. It came out well done. Usually I would suck it up and deal with it but because it was so over cooked for the price I sent it back. I am a former chef and personally I would have never have sent something out... More

I have been here once and sat at the bar. The bar was very busy and loud on a Saturday night. The food was good; service as ok.

We found this place on trip advisor and it was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. They have a small dining area and their was a very large party, so it took a little while to get seated. Once we sat down though the service was fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious, starting with the roasted beet salad,... More

What a lovely restaurant! Great location, food and service. Both of our meals exceeded our expectations. I had the dayboat scallops and my boyfriend had the sirloin steak. Both were specials and were amazing. The steak was the perfect medium rare. Our waiter, Jason I think his name was, was super fun and friendly. He even remembered a silly request... More
