Have been here several times, as my husband and I love the setting. The service is good, the food is good. My only complaint is I find that the portions are small in comparison to other places. You are paying for the view of course.

Have eaten here a few times and the food is consistently good and good value. Attentive service a nice break from the fried food offered in most of the restaurants in the area.

There perch dinners I believe are 17-18 dollars. Their haddock and chips is between 12-14 dollars. Some changes at this restaurant. I was there last weekend and they have a new chef.
