    An amazing place for special occasions! The food was very good and service was excellent! Would highly recommend, but the food is pricey. If you order steak, you have to order sides separately, but everything was really good.

    Our meal was excellent, as per usual. We were celebrating my birthday and our waiter made it extra special. Even though I told him I couldn’t possibly eat another bite when he told me he was going to bring me a free dessert, he still brought us a plate of two bite-sized pieces of cake with Happy Birthday written on the plate. It was perfect and so thoughtful. Thank you!

    I took a friend whose birthday it was. We had a nice table and our waitress was most pleasant. The truffles and candles were a big hit. My friend who claims expertise on burgers said this one was one of the best ever. Being celiac, I stick with the small filet mignon and shoestring frites which are consistently delightful

    Very underwhelming. Heavy use of salt, bland taste, poor presentation on the steak, deep fried was heavy on the batter , less on taste. We were disappointed and dissatisfied and felt like we had really made a mistake for our date night supper. Live and learn. We will not be customers again. Saying that the service was great and my halibut was ok, again not worth the almost $50.

    Service was outstanding from Bob and Emily, appetizers were delicious, but mains were huge disappointment. As a seafood restaurant, you would expect them to know how to cook fish, but the halibut was dry and overcooked. Sent it back and second try was better but not to standards expected of a high end restaurant. Mushroom risotto was bland and some pieces undercooked. Plate presentation was lacking and did not excite the diner when placed on the table. Wine list extensive with good quality wines.

    Extremely expensive tiny portions chosen from poorly designed menu (after receiving my 1st plate of 4 scallops - that’s it! for $30, I looked at the OpenTable menu and discovered options not visible on their physical menu). My dinner for 1 person, with 2 glasses of wine (9oz + 6oz) came to $175

    We really loved our meal at the Shore Club. They made us feel special and the food was incredible. We asked for a quiet table and it was perfect (not a lot of ambient noise) since my partner is deaf. The timing on our dishes was perfect, my lobster tail was absolute perfection and the steaks were exactly right. Highly recommend!!! A bit pricey but worth it for an incredible experience!!

    Ordered appetizer and we were brought main course directly. They said thise went to other table. Not expected this from a high end restaurant. We were really waiting for the appetizer and felt disappointed. Also they asked if we want some bread to start with, we said yes and thought complimentary as it happens in other restaurants. They charged for that which is ok but they should let me know beforehand that it is not complimentary. The way they asked I felt so. High end restaurant doesnt have a parking of their own. We had to pay for that.
