I could eat here 7 nights a week. Love the menu selections as they are not your typical appetizer and entree choices. The chef creates delicious meals and all are very good! The view is spectacular as well.

This is an elegant place with beautiful views and good service. We ate outside on a pleasant evening, and it was so enjoyable, I’m not sure of the quality of the food.

Ate outside on the porch, which was magical. Food was legitimately gourmet and service was attentive, friendly, and professional. We were staying at the Inn and opted to eat there all 3 nights. Highly recommend.

Excellent and unique menu combine with preparation, service and a great wine list makes the restaurant a must visit. Both indoor and outdoor dining. Menu can change nightly based on the Chefs offerings. Hard to go wrong with anything on the menu.
