We dined there last evening and although the view was lovely and the waitress was excellent the food was nothing out of the ordinary. In all fairness it was a school vacation week so perhaps that was part of it.

Went there over the weekend before Valentine's Day. Reservations are a must. Great food. Excellent wine list. Good sized portions. Get the "Bag of Doughnuts" appetizer if you like seafood fritters. Their scallop chowder was amazing. didn't even get into the desserts but they looked great. Order your wine from an Ipad. We went after the sun had set, but can only imagine the views in the Summer are great. Right on the waterfront.

The service was good, but the food was nothing special. The dinning room was very noisy. Arriving on a late winter evening meant that there was much to enjoy in a view.

A group of us on a recommendation and were glad we went. Even on a chilly February weekend, the waterfront location was cozy and warm, as a crackling fireplace greeted us. Two of us had the clam chowder, which had more clam that potato and the other two had the chef's special, potato leek which they enjoyed. The soups were served with piping hot crusty rolls. Entrees were ample for us but others may considered them small. The salmon was grilled to perfection and served with rice. The lobster croissant was filled with lobster and dressed very lightly, letting the lobster shine. The Harvest Salad was tasty, crisp greens, dried cranberries and poached pears....a portion of lobster salad was added to it. Again, a nice portion, lightly dressed. Two of us ordered a house specialty drink, which one of the group did not like and did not drink. The server did take it off the bill. The group agreed that we would definitely return....there were lots of great options.
