Great location, wonderful local mussels, beet salad and seafood salad. Great views and next door to the Clipper, convenient for the 7pm sailing. Relaxing end to the day.

Good points: Location and siting of the restaurant are excellent -- best we have here. The food on my own dinner visit was very good. My friend greatly enjoyed the surf and turf as did I with the more modest seafood linguine. It had an excellent sauce that begged not to be wasted. The one small piece of bread provided with it was inadequate and so I asked our very pleasant server if I could beg another piece from the kitchen. Unsurprisingly the answer was "yes" and MUCH later four modest pieces were brought to the table. That exceeded my expectation in terms of quantity; unfortunately this also generated a $3.45 charge on the $135 bill (one drinker only). Very cheesy -- a small but sneaky charge that spoiled the experience somewhat. Glad to see the support of local products. Desserts were exceptional.
As others have noted, the service is really slow and the speed at which drinks come out of the bar -- glacial. I hope they can pick up on these weaknesses and be successful here.

We met some friends here for dinner. Service was great. Food was good with some delicious beers on tap.

Actually stopped here twice this week. Both times were a mistake. The service is terrible and both times I had to flag down a waiter and they acted like I was bothering them. The second visit we got one order that was totally wrong. Both dishes were taken back and when the orders returned the one right order was cold. We had to catch the ferry so we couldn't wait any longer for a fresh dish. Find another spot

Great view and location. Food is good, but portions are too small, and service can be a bit slow. If you are looking for a nice snack, and good view, it's ok. But if you are hungry, better go to another place cause eating here can be a bit pricey, especially if you have some alcoholic beverages.
You definitely pay for the view and location.
