Wonderful outdoor seating area perfect for after jetskiing. Service was good and food promptly brought. Food was very enjoyable and the scenery was just perfect.

Always wanted to try this restaurant because the location was so nice. It's right on Nantucket Sound. We made reservations to be there for the sunset. Were seated on the outdoor deck and everything seemed nice. Then we met our server. We were never offered...More

Went for a late lunch and was seated on the waterfront deck-thankfully in the shade. Felt like we were in the Poconos in the 50's a bit when first walking in, but the atmosphere warmed up a bit and the food was good, if somewhat...More

Just visited this restaurant a few days ago for dinner. The place is run by kids, it seems, with no adult supervision. Service staff is a joke, and the food is INEDIBLE! Trust me, do not go here without TUMS, TAGAMET, and IMODIUM AD. My...More
