Small cozy restaurant with an outdoor deck and a small neighborhood bar close to the ferry. Interesting lunch menu with an Asian influence. Great spot to wait for the ferry and have lunch or a libation.

Gorgeous view - makes this a great place to have a drink. Food was OK. Scallops were small and overpriced. Lobster bites were basically a hush puppy. Haddock entree was OK - but an odd consistency of the rice/vegetables with a flavoring that did not fit the fish. Good options for kids. Friendly service. I'm not familiar with how this compares to other places on the island but with so many excellent options in Portland, I would only visit for a drink.

We enjoyed lunch here while on the island. The food was fine but really over priced. The deck views are amazing but there are amazing views all over the island. Next time I would pack a family picnic lunch and skip the restaurant scene on the island.

This a very touristy area for no good reason; little sight seeing, few shops and little to do otherwise. Knowing that, we took the inexpensive ferry ride to see sites from the ferry and enjoy lunch outside the city.

This restaurant was very enjoyable. Nice menu with commensurate pricing for a touristy spot- not overly priced, not inexpensive. Wife loved Sesame Chicken salad - she was very hungry - and I enjoyed the Gull Burger - decent burger.

Service was okay, certainly not bad, but not service you expect in finer restaurants. Water and drinks come in plastic cups and condiments in plastic tubes. Again, this is a tourist area and not a destination eating area.

Certainly recommend but have not visited any other restaurants on this island. Trusted TA reviews and was not disappointed.

Outside eating requires a wait. Inside eating can be immediate in good weather. We opted to put our name in and wait for outside. Worth it on a beautiful sunny day.

We went there for lunch after a friend recommended it. Everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) on the menu is overpriced. Hubby had a burger which was fine. I had the Asian Caesar Salad--$10.95 and $6 extra for chicken so $17 for a very below tasteless, small salad. There was very little dressing and what there was was tasteless. The only thing asian about it was a couple of chow mein noodles thrown on top. Service was inattentive and unfriendly. Iced tea served in a small plastic cup for $3.00--never asked if we wanted refills or came by to check on us. Really just awful all the way around.
