The online Land and Sea menu was the reason we went, only to find out it is only offered on Sundays! :( We ordered the spinach salad which was ok but had to ask for forks to eat it. The fish and chips was good. Wasn't offered drinks so I asked for iced tea. Was told they don't have it.... More

I decided to try Thanksgiving Dinner out this year for the first time in 30 years. I googled a list of local restaurants who were offering a holiday meal and made a reservation for 2 adults and 1 child. The online pricing was $29.95 per adult and children under 5 were supposed to free. Upon arrival we were met by... More

We had breakfast after staying at the Orchards. Prices were more reasonable than I expected. Considering that they seemed to be understaffed, service was remarkably good. The waitress was literally running at times. The food was not as good as we expected. My wife's eggs were not prepared quite as she requested. I had the smoked salmon Benedict. Maybe the... More

Got there around 7:30AM, place was empty, but server came out quickly and seated us at a window table. Food was good, prices were very reasonable considering what an attractive setting this is.

We enjoyed an evening meal of fish and chips with sufficient fish to stock a small aquarium. Service was friendly and efficient as it was for breakfast which provided a good range of freshly cooked options

My husband and I saw an ad for this restaurant, called to confirm their brunch times and asked if we needed a reservation. Nope--just come on in, we were told. We arrived, stood in the entryway with about 6 other people, then got the attention of a waitress. Mind you--this is a huge restaurant with very few tables filled. The... More

Even a part of hotel, this restaurant has two primary dining spaces (not including the patio or private conference room): the main dining room and the bar area - both are great places to eat. The food is good non-tavern|non-pub fare.

Had shrimp cocktail, calamari, chicken and steak dishes. So yummy. Quality ingredients, beautiful presentation. Quiet on a Thurs in late summer, but I understand weekends and during more touristy time of year it's busy.

We were a party of 6 and needed a place that would take a reservation because our group included a senior. The food was mediocre at best. The onion soup had no bread and cheese on top and was more of an onion broth. The beet and goat cheese appetizer was bland and the beets tasted like they came a... More
