Absolutely the BEST dinner with the BEST service to be found! We had 6 in our party and all of the food came out at the same time and was cooked to perfection! The wait staff was all exceptional and very personable. WAG takes COVID19 precautions seriously and it shows with staff consistently sanitizing everything!

Was a nice dinner. Waitress was very personable and polite. The only negative was that the plates seemed heavy for the food server and our plates were heavily placed on the table.

It's always a nice experience to go to the WAG and they have done a very good job of keeping all the tables 6 feet apart. The food is good but my only suggestion would be to try something new on the menu. We have been gone to the WAG for quite a few years and the menu doesn't seem to ever change.

Food below average. Pasta was swimming in sauce.
Server only checked back with us once right at the end to offer dessert.
It did has a good atmosphere so I will give them that.

Not as classy as I remembered ! Service very slow to begin with . Bare wood tables no cutlery no place setting. Bit disappointing for the first meal out in 4 months and a special celebration of graduating masters degree!

My only complaint was that we were not told here was a time limit when I booked and were asked ( very politely ) to leave after we finished our meal ..... I enjoy dining out at a leisurely pace so I would be hesitant to book again under those circumstances

Food and atmosphere were very good as usual; however, it was my boyfriend’s birthday and I had notified them of this and requested a view table. I made a reservation online and called to follow up with this request and information. When we got there, we were not given a view table and it seemed they did not know it was a birthday dinner. I had hoped when I called the restaurant this information would have been shared for the reservation.

Steel head was excellent and reasonable. Placed in the middle of the restaurant, not so great as a scenic view from most tables. Bedding plants used as dividers but too heavily scented, although they did relocate them as per my request.

Food was excellent as always and service good but staff not wearing masks and passing each other closely in aisles rather than waiting for one staff to go, then another. We were seated beside entrance to outside deck and had staff and guests frequently walking right beside my husband. Love the restaurant but won’t be heading back until CoVid is over or we hear of improvements.

First time back since all the pandemic closures. Was great to be back, albeit under different conditions. Food was great, as usual, and hard to beat the location & view of the ocean. Brent & his staff are always welcoming and contribute to a wonderful dining experience.
