Came here for dinner, had to wait 15 min because it was packed, didn't mind. The owner was quite visible and kept us informed of when a table would be ready as did the Maitre'd. Once seated, they brought fresh bread with oil to dip it in - reminded me of Spain. The drinks were a good serving as was... More

Food was appropriately priced for the area. The clam chowder, seafood bisque, stripped bass, filet mignon, baked clams and fried calamari were very good. The restaurant wad short staffed, but our waiter Tony handled it like a pro, and kept us laughing all night.

The wait stuff is colorful, be ready for that, but for our group that just made it fun. Service was well paced (no rush) and the food was excellent. Same for the wine. It may be... More

Went here for my son's birthday, mainly because we had found a Groupon for the restaurant. The Nautical Mile seemed forsaken on a Saturday night in November but the restaurant was beautifully lit up. There were only 2 tables taken when we arrived, by it was totally full by the time we left. The food was delicious. Oysters were perfect.... More

We complained and just asked for our bill which wastes $40.19 for the linguini and 2... More

Service friendly but waiter did not know details of the entrees. Menu was light on fish not quite the same as the menu listed on Trip Advisor. I had the bouillabaisse which contained a mystery fish that the waiter had no idea what it was. The fish was fishy so I left it. The octopus was overcooked but the clams... More

Stroll the half mile strip until you find a restaurant that catches your dance. RHG did just that.
