Totally fun! Great summer vibe on a sunny day in the middle of April. We’ll definitely be back. Can’t wait for summer. Oh and the portions were huge! We will adjust our ordering in the future :)
The food was good but our server didn’t put in half of our order which was disappointing. She also wasn’t good with following up.
Great food, We eat there twice a week. Rain or shine, inside or outside is great.
Hidden Jewel of Essex. We were totally blown away by their service, facilities, views and oh my the food was so delicious. Cooked well served well and the prices are way reasonable for the amount of food. They are doing something special here.
Outside - at the waters edge - on a blustery Saturday evening. Short on propane for heaters, short on staff for the Covid rush made for diners short on patience.
Well constructed menu with broad offerings. Once the summer boating season is underway and kitchen renovations complete, we’ll return for a shot of redemption.
Mark Allen was great !!!!! Fun time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent service and very good food. Nice vibe and friendly atmosphere. Will go again.
Donna our server stated she had been the morning bar tender and they got so busy she stayed. Mind you it was about 8pm and she was still in the best mood ever. They were pretty busy but I did notice the manager walking around greeting different parties in the restaurant. The food was beyond amazing and I will definitely be returning for another dinner with my family. 10 out of 10!
We’re outside sitting right by the speakers so that might’ve been why it was a little loud. But it’s lovely sitting outside and the wait staff are very courteous and accommodating. Portions for more than filling, The beef on the salad was fantastic, and the french fries are quite good.
It’s awesome! Friendly staff and delicious food
The food and views are amazing!! I love this place. Such good vibes.
Outstanding food and service .
First time at this restaurant. Very friendly staff. Service and food was excellent. Good prices. Perfect atmosphere. Definitely be back again.
Great place to relax and eat outside. Love this place!
Always one of our favorite spots! Never disappoints!
The food is so good, I eat hear 2 or more times a week. There is no reason to go anywhere else. The food is great and the specials change every week.
IT WAS A NICE PLACE, THE FOOD WAS GOOD, JUST THE MUSIC WASNT MY CHOICE
Overall a great experience. The food never disappoints. I had the special of halibut. It was cooked to perfection. Very flavorful and moist. Our server Alex did a great job for having a very busy evening.
Beautiful inside and out! Quality food. I'm sure service will improve as things get sorted out and everyone is trained
This setting on the water is spectacular. The new restaurant decor is stunning and the food/service was excellent. The manager at this place does a tremendous job and ensures all guests have a great experience.
Great food and the specials change every week. I guess that Is why we eat there twice a week. With food this good, there is no reason to go anywhere else. Friday night's dinner was so good, we made a reservation for sat night before we were even done dinner so we could try the other specials.
Absolutely amazing food, manager is on top of everything can’t wait to go back when seating is outside by water!!!
The food is great everytime we go there. ( twice a week or more )
Very nice restaurant and food and staff were great
Perfect as always.
This was our first time and the food was great it was a Friday night so it was a little crowded. We ate around 7pm and it was a little noisy. Overall great experience. We will definitely go back.
Food was fantastic! Tried 3 new dishes tonight and they amazing. My steak was cooked to perfection. And the marina shrimp were delicious. Service was phenomenal!! Oh and the mango starfish cocktail made me feel like I should have been on a cruise ship.
The bar area is very pretty. The atmosphere is uplifting with the aquarium and fireplace. Tables and chairs are comfortable. Martinis were good and food was tasty.
My husband & I celebrated Valentine’s Day this night! We visit a lot when it’s the summer season, this was our first time visiting off season. We loved it! It was really nice & quiet! My husband is currently taking blood thinners, & he was freezing cold. The owner of the establishment made sure we were comfortable & sat us at a table in front of the fireplace. He actually cleaned it up himself. We were so grateful. We enjoyed our evening!
Awesome food, drinks and atmosphere. Noise level was moderate because we were in the bar (requested) so we could see/hear the music. Overall, an excellent time. We will Definitely be back by car and boat.
My favorite place.
16th birthday dinner. Great choice. Everything was perfect
The food was excellent and the service was great
Enjoyed a Sunday brunch for the Ravens / Titans playoff game. A victory in every way!
Our third time here, food is good and place is very nice inside
The customer service and food was outstanding!!! Beautiful restaurant. My boyfriend and I enjoyed ourselves.
We went to watch the Christmas Boat Parade. We will be going back often!
