Some of these reviews are hard to believe. This restaurant is beautifully situated and beautiful inside, in an older heritage house, or so it seems. Service is very slow and amateurish, and staff, although mostly friendly, seem overwhelmed. Food is just OK, but I don't recommend the fish and chips, which is definitely not what you would expect. This place... More

I am late in my review of this restaurant as I ate there in Aug 2016. We made reservations at this restaurant and still the service was slow. The restaurant was by no means busy, yet the wait staff seemed overwhelmed. It took what seemed like a very long time to just get our drink order. My sister had the... More

We returned to this restaurant 3 times in 2 days (2 dinners and lunch) in order to sample different fare from the menu. Everything was fresh and flavorful. The service was outstanding. Sunset in the harbor is as spectacular as the food! reservations are suggested but it never felt crowded.

The food was very good and the service was excellent! The Portuguese fish and chips wasn't what I expected but it was delicious. The lobster dip isn't to be missed. My cousin thought highly of the potatoe nachos although I preferred my choice. An extremely good meal in lovely surroundings.

This restaurant is right across the street from the Harbor so whether one is on the porch or inside it's easy to see the bay as well as the ferries arriving and departing. The food was good ... we had a clam appetizer that was a little different and quite nice. The service was friendly and efficient. We liked the... More

Lunch was a real treat! Excellent thoughtful service. Perfect un-intrusive background music...soft an melodic, easy to converse over lunch. Eclectic mix of furnishings, windows all around in an older home refurbished to a restaurant, offering casual elegance. The food was terrific, and so was dessert! Well done! Congratulations to 21 Breakwater! Not to be missed. Definitely a great memory on... More

An impromptu evening dinner with my friend. Beautiful location. Endearing atmosphere. Lovely menu. Quiet music. Great view. Tasty, perfectly cooked food. Highly recommend! The halibut and haddock dishes were perfect - great portion, served hot, cooked to perfection. Best chowder ever. Desserts were yummy. Great service.

Thank Pat M
