“Had higher expectations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Both outdoor and indoor seating. Sat outside on a bright, sunny day. The restaurant was having a "Restaurant Week" special. Appetizer and main course for lunch were $20 with an optional dessert for $5. This was a bargain since most appetizers alone were $15 to $20. I had the strawberry persimmon arugula salad and the chilean sea bass. Salad was okay - strawberries a little past their prime, persimmons were hard as a rock. The chilean sea bass was good BUT arrived barely warm with the sauce congealed on the plate. This could have been spectacular. Waiter was well-intentioned but missed the mark for this level of restaurant. Drinks off of menu were about $15 - strong but unexceptional. Go for the location. You might find better food options in town....or perhaps this was just an off day for the restaurant although with limited crowds everything should have been top notch.

“Another Superb Meal at Sheerwater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

I have had the opportunity to eat at Sheerwater several times. My recent experience for dinner was one the best dining experiences I have had in quite some time. The waiter was superb and made the experience very enjoyable. Between the wonderful food and great view, our evening was unforgettable. I started off with the clam chowder followed by the sea bass. Our entire table tried different menu selections and no one had any complaints about their choices. Can't wait to go back.

“Beautiful atmosphere - loved dining alfresco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013 via mobile

Had the fish tacos for lunch and they were very tasty. Crab cake sandwich for dinner was also good, but atmosphere inside a little noisy with waiter traffic. Good place for people watching.

“Delicious food, great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

We had our last night's dinner here and loved it. Our server was excellent and the food was delicious from start to finish. My husband had the chilean sea bass and I had the ribeye. Both dished were superbly prepared. The views were also very nice and since it was chilly, there were heat lamps outside which added a nice touch.
