"I assumed that it was a much nicer restaurant than I got when I arrived. We were definitely over dressed in a dress and nice button down. The service was slow and did not come across as friendly. My wine that i ordered came with what looked like sand in the bottom of my glass; I was told they were crystals that form naturally in that type of wine, but crystals would only form if the wine was left open for a long period of time. I ordered one of the specials of the night. The fish was good, but the rice it was served with was way too mushy; it was probably good the day before. The she-crab soup was too thick and very salt. My husbands steak was undercooked. On top of all this the service was slow and unfriendly; I think our waitress was avoiding our table."

"First the good; quantity and variety. Now the bad: service,quality,wait time and pretty much everything else! Have been here for brunch several times but had not been for a while and can only say that it has definitely slipped from what it once was. So there you have your trade off; if you want a lot of food and don't care about the quality or service this is for you-but be prepared for the hefty price . This review is based solely on the Sunday brunch."

"Our reservation was pushed back an hour because of an earlier party. Only a two hour notice was not quite long enough to change the rest of the plans for the evening . Not that it would have helped anyway . Our server was so busy with other tables inside and all of the tables outside . Though he did a good job , he definitely needed some help as it took forever to get refills on our drinks and an extremely long time to get our dinner ."

"This restaurant was once in years past the elite brunch, however April 26th not so much. For roughly $30 a plate you get cold unattended food, poor service, with waiters openly debating on taking on new customers."

"The view of the ocean is awesome. The place is a bit outdated and upkept for such a nice real estate location. Yet, they did serve good food for a fair price. Loved the seafood platter. Steak was overcooked. Server was very accommodating. We will visit again!"

"Everything was great the food was excellent. We had a hard time finding the restaurant. There is no sign outside. When we finally found the place we had to asked in the Lobby again for directions. Recommend that you install sign and advertise more."

"Allowed solicitors to approach table during dining time. Serving stations did not keep dining ware stocked. Some of the food selections were good and some were poor. Value for your dollar is poor. Will not return and would not recommend this Sunday Brunch."
