Tasty lobster and Caesar salad finished off with yummy fresh blueberry pie. The service was friendly and timely. We had an experienced waiter who hailed from Ireland. He was very good at what he does.

I am perplexed by the cascade of rave reviews. We had a good, but very ordinary lunch atop the roof...overlooking the parking lot, not the ocean.At the waitress's recommendation, I ordered haddock, and my husband had a salad. Both were certainly tasty (if unremarkable), and...More
