My wife and I had a romantic dinner at Wind and Sea on Valentines Day. We experienced excellent service, great food and really special ambiance. We will have guests visiting us next week and we will certainly bring them to Wind & Sea.

Had an excellent Sunday Brunch at Wind and Sea. Scored a table near window and watched people paddle board and kayak on a sunny morning. Made to order omelette was excellent. Nice selection of sides and fresh fruit. Service was pleasant and attentive. Well worth the price of $18.99. If it was a few degrees warmer, would have been nice... More

Enjoyed an early dinner here and we we pleasantly surprised! Lots of fish options in many styles of preparation, drinks were made well, portions were fantastic, service was friendly - not overbearing or neglectful! We had a waterfront table and it was fun to watch boats and people come and go.

The restaurant we wanted to try was closed for a private function so we stumbled upon the Wind and Sea. We counted ourselves very fortunate as food, service, and atmosphere combined for a most enjoyable early dinner. The wait staff was attentive and knew the menu. We followed their advise with two wonderful fish dishes as we watched the sailboats... More

Last October 16th we went down to Wind and Sea Restaurant to have a cocktail and watch the Super Moon rise over the water. It was the closest to the Earth as it's ever been in 68 years. We got a front row spot on the patio outside and it was georgous! Had the Calamarti appetitizers and it was really... More

The decor seems like it has not been changed since the 80s, and you can tell that is what the patrons love about it. It was my first time here and I was there for a business lunch. I had the swordfish special which was delicious. It's pricey but you're right in the middle of the harbor so you can't... More

Great day, great scenery, and very nice patio to dine and enjoy. The BLT salad is excellent, but just one of many nice entries. The sandwiches and cheeseburger are great. Eric our server worked hard to make sure we were well supplied at all times.

My husband stopped by for appetizers after taking a whale watching cruise. We sat al fresco; the view was very nice. We were seated right away. Our waitress Chanelle was very attentive and friendly. We ordered a martini, a beer, nachos, and eye poke. Total price without tip was 54 dollars. Servings of food are large. This is a very... More

We visited the Wind & Sea restaurant on 30th December, exactly 1 year from our last visit, and were pleased to see that the experience had not diminished from the last occasion. Seating and service is swift and courteous, and the lunchtime menu extensive with a range of local ingredients. We chose a window table overlooking the harbour, though this... More

We were a group of 8 and they were very accommodating, even though we just popped in. We had a nice table outside. Service was great and food excellent. Was surprised how busy they were for an early dinner..
