    There was a group of 8 of us, and 7 of the group had never been to the restaurant before, and most will probably not return. Three people got the Salmon ($30.00+). Two of them had to stop at a fast food place after we finished eating because the portions were so small they were starving. The Seafood Chowder also didn't feel like it was worth the money. One person in our group paid extra to change their fries to a salad, but for the cost of the upgrade, there was very little salad in the bowl they received. The restaurant was slow, but it was a longer wait than expected. The view was amazing, the staff was excellent, and it was easy to talk, which was in its favour. They have a great breakfast buffet, and I would recommend that repeatedly, but I would not recommend this restaurant for any other meal.

    went there for breakfast buffet. The food was good however the food was a bit on the cooler side. I understand it was a buffet and food doesn't stay hot that long but overall the taste was still delicious!!! the only other thing was it did state on the website that you can get an omelet as part of the buffet made to order but i did not see that option.

    The food was cold for only 2 of us in the restaurant. The veggies were microwaved. Felt like we were rushed out of there. The menu was very limited We had never been there before and will not go there again. The service wasn’t terrible.

    This was my 4th or 5th time here. I've had mostly good experiences previously. This time was not great. Even though there were only three other tables of patrons, everything took too long. To get seated (with a reservation) was close to 10 minutes. To get water and menus upon seating was 10+ minutes. To order was 10 more minutes. So 30 minutes from arrival to placing order. Even though the place was close to empty, the waitress sat all four tables immediately adjacent to each other. The noise level of the small corner where everyone was seated was unnecessarily high due to the chatter. One of the selling points of this place for me is that it's quiet. The food took close to 45 minutes even though we had simple orders with no apps. The waitress assured us at one point that our food was up next. It came about 15 minutes after that and it was room temperature as if it had been sitting ready for a while. The food itself was quite good considering it was not very warm. Finally, when it came time for the bill, the waitress disappeared again. I am not sure if she was going on smoke breaks or cell phone breaks or what. It was close to 2 hours from arrival to paying the bill for two simple meals with no apps and only three other tables worth of patrons. It could be understandable if it were extremely busy. Hopefully, this is a one-off.

    Really enjoyed our annual Cranberry Lane visit. Sat near the windows and must remember to book that next year. From the chowder to the dinner everything was enjoyable. Salmon a little dry. Desserts were plentiful but missed the cake with blueberry sauce. Definitely plan on going back next year.
