This is a dock and done spot in a pretty hotel. There are several outdoor seating areas. Even heaters.

We had lunch. I recommend the trying the crab cake or the fish po' boy sandwich. Others in the party had burgers and they were good. Also had a variety of appetizers which were all tasty.

Sunday night after a long drive. Hungry and tired and staying at the hotel. Restaurant not busy, but I was seated almost half an hour before anyone asked me if I wanted anything. Single waitress was overwhelmed by one party of five and so she ignored me while well-meaning but ineffectual busboy fretted. Waitress suddenly swooped down on me when... More

The Danfords Hotel is historic and sits right on the water. The Wave Seafood Kitchen is on the second level with beautiful views over looking the water and bay.

This dinner get together for 6 was less than inspiring. The dining room itself was comfortable and had it been daylight, the view of the harbor would have been delightful. The service was a bit more than just slow, and it seemed that the course of our dinner would be haphazard. We ordered 2 different bottles of wine since as... More
