Food is good. The view is a 10. You are eating at the harbor. There is a lot of boats, and people rowing or sailing by. Very relaxing and scenic. Service is good.

If you love seafood this is the place for you. Situated on the ocean with of course great clam chowder, calamari, Cioppino!!! excellente etc etc Salmon is fabulous and I can't think of anything I don't like there even Pizza. Very affordable in my opinion, good beer and wine selection. The view is what makes it for me though as I enjoy the ocean every chance I can.

Fried food feast! Outdoor seating right near harbor. We enjoyed calimari and chips. Wear a hat if it’s sunny

Let me start by saying the food was good. And a nice place to eat outside. Dog friendly. But the service is horrible. I understand "beach time" but when every step of the process -- from getting a menu (10 min) to getting water (20 min) -- the ability to meet a customer's needs has to be looked at.

To be honest, I was ready to let these things go. But when the servers are rude, I have little patience. After it took 20 minutes for water, I asked the waiter nicely if they were backed up. I mentioned that if so, it might be better to leave since I had to be someplace by a certain time. He replied "I didnt realize you were in a rush." I was taken a back. Perhaps a better response would have been "Sorry. I know it is taking time. But your food should be out." I of course responded, "I didn't expect it to take 20 min to get water."

Just upsetting and made the rest of the meal -- which did come right away -- just a bit upsetting


And this was on a Tuesday at 2 PM. I understand the restaurant was shortstaffed and have no problem with that -- things happen. But work on the customer service

Busy on weekends not too bad during week. Totally outdoors so sunscreen or coat required depending on our fog. Large portions, great Bloody Mary's, incredible view. Bring the kids and dogs....
