The environment in the restaurant is great and the staff have always been very pleasant and helpful. The views are outstanding. The only issue I have with the restaurant is that they keep taking away the items on the menu that I like (and look forward to)! They used to have an amazing panko encrusted salmon salad that they no longer ... read more

Interesting new area
We stopped in for a beer/wine in the late afternoon, after site seeing. We sat at the bar and decided to try their clam chowder. Very interesting, clear clam broth with a nice amount of clams and some veggies. I grew up on Cape Cod so meh, but by husband really liked it! The restaurant itself is worth a trip. Massive fish tanks throu... read more

The view is GREAT
Great food, service and view, what more could you want. There is a nice small bar, the drinks are made with fine Liqueur. Plenty of parking. All in all a really fantastic place.

Pretentious
Hostess was snooty - and acted really put out that she had to show is to our table. The food was mediocre, the service slow. All the nouveau riche who bought into the over engineered resort experience let their brats run wild in the restaurant -- which pretty much ruined the remnants of the dining experience. Pick a local seafood hou... read more

The food is average but the view is worth the stop.Try to get there for sunset. There were very few people there but it might have been because it is still low season.

The entrees were large, the quality was above average and the prices were about right but the noise made the experience very unpleasant. That said, it was a Saturday night. I'd consider going back mid-week but never again on a weekend.

We had a reservation and our table of four was seated immediately. Our server was very good as was the atmosphere. The food was good, not amazing. Portions were huge. 2 of us got the lobster mac and cheese and we should have just split 1 serving. Large pieces of lobster in average mac and cheese.
