The food here is simple and elegant, the service is phenomenal, and the ambiance is luxurious. This restaurant is a go-to for any special events with my family when we're down the shore. And remember, it's BYO!

I dine here a couple times a year. Most recently for New Years Eve and their pre fix menu. The NYE menu had choices in each category and were all done to perfection.

The service, food and atmosphere were perfect. The food was seasoned enough to allow you to enjoy its flavor. You were left to sit and enjoy the evening without being rushed. This is fine dining for adults in a beautiful Victorian setting.

We were staying at the hotel and lucky enough to be able to have dinner there. Food was well-prepared. There evening special included and appetizer, main course and dessert for $29. Most of the offerings were also on their main menu. Would go back again.

The food is always excellent here. It is a BYOB, so you can bring a reasonably priced bottle of wine. Great restaurant for a special occasion.
