We were expecting greatness. Service was average and so was food. Servers seemed bored and just wanted to get us served and gone.

Wasn't sure what to expect for dinner yet, it was delightfully classy and had delicate detail in each course. James, a military veteran, (Thank You James!) was our waiter tonight and served us quickly, politely and was extremely professional in all aspects. This is definitely one of the best meals we have ever had and feel great, not overwhelming stuffed... More

The decor of this restaurant is all about the sea, but more in terms of ships--a nautical style. It's a pleasure to be in a place where you can hear yourself, as well as your table-mates, speak. We had a small group (6), but I know they can handle larger groups as well. The server was terrific--one of those people... More

This is one of our favorite places in Williamsburg. The crab cakes are some of the best I've ever had! The portions are generous, and the service is impeccable. We love the atmosphere. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Overall excellent experience - slightly pricey, but you will get your money's worth. -- nice atmosphere -- excellent menu -- pan-seared scallops perfectly prepared -- baked seafood sauton with crab, oysters, shrimp and scallops was just right -- impeccable service by James. Very attentive without hovering. A real pro.

The staff apparently knew we were celebrating our anniversary as my husband had flowers sent there. However, they went beyond good service, by seating us in an area away from other patrons, and assigning James as our server. His recommendation of the crab dip, was a hit and I enjoyed my salad while my husband had the crab bisque. Our... More
