Wide ranging and creative menu, consistently delicious. Really fresh seafood, wedge salad and hanger steak are favorites. Reservations an absolute must on weekends.

Staff is excellent, we a free appetizer because our server was so busy and didn't get our drinks for some time. Meals are in mid 20s, pizzas 15....we wouldn't go b.s. k because price of food doesn't match quality at all. But servers were great.

We went there on a Saturday evening expecting a crowd and we were the ONLY ones on the rooftop! They don't serve food up there, but they do have a bar. Beautiful view of the marina!

Everyone in our group was happy with their brunch selection. If you have a large group be sure to call ahead and reserve a table since the restaurant only has room for one large table and rest are tables or booths for 4 people max.

The food and service is consistently very good at this restaurant overlooking the harbor...but I think this restaurant is best enjoyed on a nice summer day when you can eat outside.
