This place has really delicious brunches, but plan for a long wait. The service is slow, but you won't feel rushed while dining when you finally get seated. The food is tasty, drinks too. Advance reservations are not allowed so get your name on the waitlist.

After meeting a friend we decided to try a quick lunch. We were seated at a table that was not clean. We showed the waiter the pool of water on the table He responded that is no problem. We then asked for napkins that he allowed us to have piled up wet through our entire meal. For some reason our... More

Just stopped in to get a drink after a very long walk on the boardwalk and could NOT get anyone to even acknowledge your presence. Waited at least 15 mins and left.

Eight members of our family gathered from points far & wide at this popular brunch location. Parking was easy & free since it was after 10/1. When we arrived at 11 we were told the wait would be an hour which turned out to be pretty accurate, but our time was well spent catching up in their adjoining waiting area.... More

Excellent French restaurant, the dinner menu is not very extended but you can find both seafood and meat or poultry Ideally located at the boardwalk it has great sea views. The food was excellent, certainly the chicken and trout were to recommend. The cocktails were OK, not more. The wine list is extensive with a lot of French wine, quiet... More

Visiting the area from out of town,some local friends suggested we start the day at Turning Point. What a bright,relaxing,welcoming spot. Really nice breakfast menu,w/choices for all. Service & food were excellent. Always a good sign when your friends know a lot of fellow diners.
