Great food, outstanding view coupled with good service. What an experience seeing a large cruse ship just off the shore line.

We enjoyed a delightful lunch in warm fall weather on the patio of the hotel. The food was excellent (it's been a couple of weeks, but I believe I had a fried clam dish, and my wife had a salad), and the view was simply gorgeous. Service was excellent. The only complaint either of us had was that to go... More

My husband and I went with a free ticket from a vacation package we got from the nearby Quality Inn where we stayed (incidentally, also a good choice: the hotel and the package!). The ticket could be used for lunch or dinner either at the Terrace Grill or their slightly more formal "The Reading Room". We had the choice of... More

We dined at this restaurant after going out on the four-master Schooner around Frenchman's Bay. It has a wonderful view of the ocean and a nice sea breeze. All the tables have umbrellas over them to shade you. There were four of us at our meal. We eat or do something different and it was all delicious. It is a... More

While staying at the inn, we had a package that included a Lobster Bake here. We were lucky that the weather was warm and we could watch the sky change color as the sun set. Our waiter, Levi, was very nice and let me substitute a garden salad for the clams & mussels. Also my husband asked for a substitution... More

The Terrace Grille is a wonderful way to spend an evening, dining near the water, with a beautiful view. We didn't have a reservation, but had no trouble getting in. The Lobster Bisque was absolutely delicious, as was the Blueberry Float!

A great selection of good things for lunch... soup, salads, sandwiches, entrees and a great wine list to boot. All this while the ocean air is wafting through the sunshine are the tables with umbrellas. Superb milieu for dining! Or, just grab a table in late afternoon, sip a fine chardonnay and listen to the call of sea gulls mixed... More

Know in advance this is the informal sister restaurant to the Reading Room . We found it perfect for us. It is outdoor dining overlooking the harbor,and perfect for seeing the sun set. The menu is somewhat limited but does offer something for everyone. Our serving help was attentive and very helpful. I am allergic to shellfish and everyone there... More

This place offers outside seating with a wonderful view. The menu is limited and a little pricey but what we had to eat was good and so was the service.
