My husband and I had high expectations for this restaurant due to a number of people telling us it was worth a visit. Sadly, the only thing to recommend this place is the view - the deck area is nicely furnished and being on the creek is always a joy.
Our waiter took a while to arrive and when he did, seemed thoroughly disinterested in both us and the food. Not a smile. The shrimp to start were fine (a little too spicy for something that wasn't detailed as being spicy....) and the clam chowder was tasty although miniature in portion size.
Our entrees were very disappointing. Our waiter had told us that the fish of the day was a pink snapper and whilst it was very nicely cooked, he had failed to tell us that this was charged at around ten dollars more expensive than the next expensive thing on the menu. When the prices are already quite inflated, that makes for quite an expensive entree that also doesn't come with any sides. My husband ordered the crab cavatelli.... which was severely lacking in crab and tasted as though a cup of old parmesan had been thrown in at the last minute (despite there not being any parmesan on the ingredients listed on the menu...). Not pleasant to eat and we left half of it. We also ordered the "fire roasted vegetable platter" which was, like everything else, overpriced and tiny. The vegetables might have seen some flame but they weren't seasoned properly, had little to no flavour and were cowering in corners of a large wooden board which just highlighted how little food was actually provided. I also had a sneaking suspicion that the peppers were jarred peppers which had just been heated up.
My husband's dessert (the fluffernutter) was tasty. I ordered the special of the day which was an "Italian based custard dessert" - our waiter was singularly unable to provide any further description. Having tried it, I think it was just some condensed milk and dulce de leche in a tumbler.
As the fish was cooked so nicely, i've given this three stars but the restaurant really needs to up its game if it is going to continue to charge these prices.
