Crab cake and lobster good. Brussel sprouts ok. Dessert was meh. Crowded and very noisy. Definitely need a reservation.

The Mooring has the vibe of an upscale seafood restaurant but with none of the pretense. Had lunch with friends on a Thursday afternoon. Sat on the deck overlooking the marina so there was a lovely breeze on what was a very hot and humid...More

We had reservations for 8:00 PM, arrived about 10 minutes before 8:00 and were seated about 8:10. There are two bars for ordering drinks while you wait. Dinner was good, 4 out of the 5 orders were spot on. One steak slightly undercooked but not...More

The Moorings was perfect. Well, maybe if it were cheaper it would be perfect but otherwise my family loves it. I ordered a Negroni... perfection. The bag of donuts... Awesome. Everything we got was the gold standard for what we expect from a pricey shoreline...More

Honestly there loads of them. Do you want a bed and breakfast or large hotel? The only really large hotel on the island is the Marriott. It is a great place (we stayed there for our wedding).

I am not sure about the brunch menu as we were there for a late afternoon lunch. The view is outstanding, maybe calling ahead will give you an idea of the brunch menu items.

You will have to ask them, but I know they have private dining area as we saw a large group come in the same time we arrived.
