We really enjoyed our dinner. My wife had the seafood penne which was excellent! I had the Perfect Ten with the filet mignon and crab cake. The crab cake was delicious as was the steak, though it was cooked past the medium rare I requested. Our server, Ally (who was outstanding) noticed that and offered to have another fired for us, but it was so flavorful I didn't want to send it back. (FYI, we overheard a couple at another table offer the same complaint.) For dessert, we shared a lava cake, which was again delicious, but a little past the nice flowing lava stage. Service was excellent all around. Parking is a little complicated, but that was a very small concern.

Appetizers we ordered wasn’t prepared as asked
We ordered a main entree but were advised it was no longer available so we had to order something else.

Ambiance was nice.

The entire experience was great. All of our meals were very good. The wait staff was attentive but not all over you. We sat and talked for quite a while (not our usual MO) We never felt rushed.
I wish there was more parking (Valet is the go to). The water, food and drink make up for it. And they had live music too.

Fun view of bridge and canal! Lovely spot! Delicious food, excellent service! Victoria went above and beyond to make our evening special!
There was live music outside; however we were in the upstairs dining room were silt was a bit more quiet and intimate.

food and service were terrific. Our only disappointment is the change in decor. the restaurant feels more like a diner. for the prices it should feel more upscale.

It was a bad night at a usually excellent restaurant. The service was sporadic and our courses were poorly managed. The soup was delivered after the entree and table service, coasters and artisan breads and rolls never arrived. My pan seared Halibut was excellent but my wife's Seafood Pasta in a cheese sauce was tepid and tasteless, the scallops were tough and overcooked. our server, Eden was friendly and apologetic but not very efficient or in-control. We haven't seen her before and we've been regulars for years so perhaps she's new and just needs more training and time to improve her service skills.

Primary reason for going was prime rib night and they ran out of prime rib before our 7:30 reservation. Limited wine selection. Food we did order was good and the remodel they did is very nice.

Love the new renovations upstairs. It is a really lovely and has a nice classy nautical ambiance now. The food is solid and the views of the harbour excellent. I’ve dined outside on the deck upstairs too and that is a nice atmosphere as well. Overall a really nice addition for upscale dining in Chesapeake City.

The food was excellent from the starters to the main course. Calamari is just right. Our main dishes was excellent (ate it all) and that dessert (Peach bread pudding) was excellent

First time here and valet parking was a nice touch as it was very busy. Food was worth going back for and even though we didn’t have a table with a view it was easily accessible and service was great!

I've always enjoyed dining with you. My reservation for my party of 4 was a disappointing experience on July 8, 2021. We were seated quickly, and the service was fine. However, after waiting 45 minutes, all of our meals arrived barely warm. One of the meal was actually sent back to be heated. I ordered the Sea Bass Special, and it was warm, overcooked and dry. However, I didn't send it back because of the time we had already waited.

We stopped here before heading out on a sunset cruise. We had a lovely date with a beautiful view. The sushi wasn't that good but the seafood was delicious! We ordered the tequila shrimp appetizer which was amazing. My husband had the perfect 10 which was a filet and crab cake that he also enjoy. And I had the seafood penne. Overall it was good.

Menu for inside dining was very limited and high priced especially for portion size. Mashed potatoes and green beans only option for sides. Extra side of french fries consisted of 5 fries in a 3”x 3” x 3” wire basket. Great location on river’s edge but too high priced for mediocre food and limited selection.
