Basin Harbour ticks all of the boxes except for food. If you want a grown up atmosphere and decent food find somewhere off site. A reaI pity as Basin Harbour is somewhere where you want to forget the car and the outside world! On our first night we reserved a table in the main dining room - we were shown to our table an hour late and still had to wait to order. When the food finally arrived it was pretty mediocre and minimalistic - unlike our experience so far in the USA! So the next night we tried the Red Mill a pub which is also on the site, this turned out to be just as expensive. We went for the steak - my plate comprisied of a tasty but cool steak, a luke warm wrinkled baked potato and 3 pieces of stone cold brocolli- nothing more, nothing less. We had to ask for sauces to accompany our dinner and water - again not typical of our experience so far of eating out in America. The Red Mill had several families with children eating - all well behaved and bundled off to bed at an appropriate hour; however at 8:15 the floor managers wife arrived with new baby and a toddler, they had come to eat and to see 'Daddy'. When we left after 9:00pm their food had just arrived and the toddler was sitting in the middle of the table with a milkshake and Mum was teaching her table manners. I didnt come all this way and incurr all this expense to experience this!
