Had a great view of sunset over the Sound as we enjoyed a variety of well prepared seafood, good wine and cocktails, and as a bonus, very tasty chowder. A bit out of the way, but worth the trip from the city.

My husband and I enjoyed a sunset dinner before attending a 5th Avenue performance of Come From Away (which we highly recommend). As we were interested in several of the starter dishes, we made a meal out of sharing the following: clam chowder, butter lettuce...More

I ordered the Alaskan king crab legs even though they were $62, because I had read reviews that they were worth it. Very disappointed in the taste (bland) and the amount (3 legs). We were also overcharged for our wine, but didn’t want to say...More

A classic restaurant with a wonderful view, perfect service, and delightful menu! Hubby and I dined here for lunch today. We arrived about 12:45 and chose to sit outside on the heated patio. It was sunny and no wind, so it was perfect. The view...More

It's not really that type of restaurant. Diners here expect a peaceful romantic atmosphere plus a lovely view, particularly at this price point. Families could possibly be seated in a secluded noisy kid friendly area.
