We stopped here after a long day at a summer festival in another town. We ate on the outdoor patio. The restaurant affords views of Long Island Sound. It is a pleasant way to while away a few hours. We tried clam strips with fries and Cesar Salad with shrimp. Everyone loved the food, portion and quality. The waitstaff is young and accommodating and well trained in customer service. A few minor issues about the facility. It is starting to show signs of wear. We noticed the outdoor steps were chipped and in some spots the flagstone was missing big chunks of material. The bar area had a damp smell. A bit off putting in a place like this. It could use some fresh paint inside and out as well. Aside from the cited flaws, this is a worthwhile venue.

We had their Sunday brunch, regular breakfast and dinner. They were all really good.

The brunch has craving, omelet station, pasta and crepe stations. They are all make to order. They also have good selections of seafood, hot food and desserts. I would definitely give it a try. :)

The staffs were pretty attentive and friendly. The view is nice since you look out to the ocean. Nice experience.

Had dinner last night in the main dining room. View is spectacular! That's where it ends. Food was bland and unimaginative. My tenderloin was tough and accompanied sides stone cold. One exception was the New England clam chowder, which was thick and creamy. Server was very professional, efficient and saved the evening by taking my entree off the bill.Would have been better off eating a burger outside at the Sunset Grill. This was certainly not fine dining and not worth the money. The food preparation certainly does not equal the fantastic ocean view! Don't bother!

My prior experience with this restaurant was lunch which was very good. This time five us went there for dinner and had a wonderful meal. The resort itself is very nice and the dining room is beautiful and dramatic because it's entered by walking down a flight of stairs into an airy bright and elegant room with large windows with a view of the lawn that sweeps down to Long Island Sound. Just a beautiful setting for dinner.
All of us ordered different items from the menu which had a nice array of dishes and all of us were very pleased with our choices. The service was first rate from the helpful, friendly waiter which added to the enjoyment of the meal. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. This is definitely a restaurant where you can enjoy a quiet dinner with friends or with your partner. Great place to enjoy celebrating a special occasion.

We went to the Goodspeed Opera House and were looking for a nice meal to end our day. My husband researched area restaurants and found this gem. For this caliber restaurant it is not at all expensive but certainly five star!
Admittedly we have been here only once, but our meals were extraordinary, the service wonderful and the views spectacular. We love dining out and have eaten at some fine restaurants including
Boston, NYC and Cape cod.
I deep trying to find reasons to return to the area just so we can eat at the water's edge.
