We stayed here Wednesday night, what a nice spot. Our cabin wasn't overly big but big enough for the 3 of us. We were leaving before the restaurant/eating area was opening the next day so the workers actually did us up a nice breakfast basket...More

We met a friend for lunch at By the Sea. Enjoyed home style food and was served in a timely manner. The view was fabulous. Would definitely visit again while in the area.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch and were very happy with the food and the service. We sat at a table overlooking the beautiful harbour in King's Point. Gorgeous place!

We were there for 2 meals....both were great. Pea soup was delicious - the dumpling was so big, it wouldn't fit in the soup, so it was served on the side ! Lots of choices for breakfast- I had toutons, bacon and fish cakes (...More

Visited on a Friday night. Best to make reservations. We only waited 30min or so though. Service was fast and very friendly. Food was excellent. We had the hot beef and by the sea platter. Sticky toffee dessert was so good and huge!

We arrived just after a bus tour had arrived. While we understand that this adds a load, the staff were distracted (long wait before anyone even established eye contact, much less said anything to us; asked for extra butter and water which never arrived, etc.)....More

The staff are very helpful and friendly. I had the homemade fish cakes, they were absolutely delicious! The slice of homemade bread and pickles were a added bonus.

We were staying nearby, and there are no other restaurants in the area, so we crossed our fingers and went in. Typical fare, friendly service, moderately priced. They were open until 10, and we got there at 7, but unfortunately there was a private event...More

Everytime we visit Kings Point we stop in for lunch. The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly.
