Recommended by a local hotel owner. No reservation and we got a table without waiting. Beautiful view. Above average service. Baked cod was excellent. Flat iron sirloin had great flavor, but meat was tough. Green beans were nearly raw.

I've eaten at restaurants around the world and I really can't think of many that have a more picturesque view. The food was good and the atmosphere was kid-friendly. They also have a diverse kids menu.

I had stopped in personally the night before and made a reservation. Very odd they don't answer or have an answering machine.

I ;had a very nice Chardonnay there (sold by the glass). It was a Californian wine, I believe. Could you tell me what wine it may have been (described as having a flavor of "creme brulee") I would love to purchase some here back home on L.I. Thank you!
