Service was friendly and accommodating. Excellent selection on the menu. The seafood was prepared in an excellent fashion, presentation was well done. The waitress was attentive and friendly. The Maitre D was helpful and accommodating to our individual requests.

The ocean view was lovely with the option to have the ocean breeze during our dining experience.

Prices were reasonable, good value for the money. Highly recommended.

We have been going here since it first opened - used to spend every special occasion here as a kid and young adult. Spent another birthday there yesterday and most of the food was good, my drink was all ice and in a small glass. Steak was $40 and tough and hard to cut through… beef tenderloin shouldn’t be cut on the wrong grain and hard to chew. Was disappointed:(

Great food, wonderful service from our server.

We were seated in a booth nearer the entrance where the space is a bit more confined. The volume in the space is loud, you must speak loudly to converse with a tablemate. I suspect that the space towards the back in the more open space would be somewhat clearer.

Love the area where this restaurant is located. The food is amazing. It would be really nice if they could have a patio off the back overlooking the water and would probably cool the restaurant off as well as it gets very hot

Everything was excellent. The only thing to be aware of is parking is a long ways away, especially if you are disabled, and there is no elevator up to the top floor

Disappointed that you no longer had rack of lamp.
Really wanted to enjoy the beet salad. Beets were hard and and tasted woody. Our server never came back to ask how our meal was. The rest of the salad was delicious.
Though disappointed - we will be back . Too many good memories over many years.

Would have liked a table much closer to the beach vs the furthest one. Had family from out of town and they would have liked a better view! The food was excellent though!

Fun restaurant, this was my first visit. I enjoyed the food but it's a very noisy place.
Everything was good except for a hot chocolate my daughter ordered. We had to return it as it was really bad but they were very professional about it

My friend and I met for dinner here last night. I enjoyed the ease of making the reservation on OpenTable and the ample parking (5$ after 5pm). I ordered the Scallop and Prawns salad which was delectable. My friend had Butternut squash ravioli which she really enjoyed too. We complemented our meal with sangria - so delicious! No room for dessert but enjoyed a long walk and talk afterwards along the boardwalk and pier. Lovely evening with a long-time friend.

We were early - not an issue for them, pleasant greeting, server ‘twas attentive, good energy, nice smile. Genuinely wanted to make our dinning experience good.

Some of the decor is a little sad, chairs had whips in them.

Room is great. Server very nice but too busy so slow. Took very long to get our orders and then only 4 of 5 got theirs and waited another almost 5 minutes for the 5th. Food sounds good but mediocre preparation. For example: sliced strawberries in the salad still had their leaves on. Ratio of lettuce to rest of salad too high - wasn’t balanced very well. Onions too strong and overwhelmed the salad. Steelhead was good though.
