We went in May and it was windy and cold outside, so we had to eat inside. It was a little bare, and rundown. The lobster bisque was very tasty, but could have used a little more lobster. The main courses were very good as...More

I don't think so, and they fill up quickly, not many tables. We went on a weekday and arrived at 11:30 am and were seated right away. But within just a few minutes a line was forming. So go early bring your drinks and order... More

Yes they take credit cards and it is still BYOB . There is a nice package store up the hill. I also noticed that the pack store may do deliveries to Fords
Why aren't the umbrella's out this summer! We went in June and they were there. Went in July and had lunch in the hot sun. Went tonight-no umbrellas. We left and went elsewhere. The food & view are great but for those prices I want to be comfortable.
