We only went to this restaurant once and that was once too many times for us. I had the barbequed ribs. You could tell that these ribs had been frozen and microwaved including the sauce. In other words, these were not chef-cooked ribs. The coleslaw...More

The West Coast Smoked Salmon was excellent and the seafood pasta that my wife had was also very good. View of the ocean was a bonus.

The restaurant is very convenient if you are staying at BW Tin Wis, but overall we weren't impressed with the food. Service and winew were fine, but our steak seemed smaller than the 6 oz promised, was overlooked and chewy. Better food and atmosphere can...More
