The rooftop area was closed due to a passing storm when we ate here, but we still got a table with an ocean view. This is casual fine dining with some interesting dishes. The fried trout was delicious. Portions are adequate though not overly large,...More

THE best thing about this restaurant is indeed, the view. I'm a sucker for an ocean view and it upped my overall score. The food? Some 'just OK' (my haddock special, desserts), some a bit better (mussels, calamari, cod & clam dinner), but basically not...More

The service and food were both grand. The food was modern American and not ridiculously priced. Casual yet classy restaurant.

My wife and I went there for an anniversary dinner not long ago, and while the food was good, we were appalled at the poor service. It started with the hostess, who dropped the silverware as we were being seated. Then, and most aggravatingly, we...More

There's not much to add to the comments people have made about MCs except that it is a wonderful place. It provides the most-stylish dining option in the cove, with prices to match. The view is unbeatable in the daylight hours through the wall-to-wall windows....More

I personally would not want to pay the price for dinner at this restaurant with even well behaved children, , however, I think it could be a good experience for lunch.

Honestly, don't remember the dinner menu. I know there were steak choices and of course seafood. I would check their website as others have suggested.
