The restaurant is on the ocean so the views are excellent. Eight of us were there to enjoy a Birthday Party. Our dinners were all wonderful, however, a 3 or 4 year old was seated with her parents next to us. She screamed all through dinner. The management did nothing. The staff did nothing. The parents did nothing. Our table... More

Have frequented this restaurant twice. It is a quaint little eatery literally on the water with the right timing of tides and moon waves will be crashing at your window. The service is fantastic and the food is excellent. The ambiance of this place reminds you how special this place is.Even to have cocktails and an appetizer is well worth... More

There are few places that I could sum up with the single word - Perfection. Marine Room was that from the view, to the food, and general restaurant atmosphere. It was also not outrageously expensive. I had the filet with lobster tail. Along with a fabulous salad and dessert the cost came to $80:00. Definitely the window view of the... More

We had dinner with friends. Excellent menu, big variety - we chose lobster menu which is served on Sundays and Mondays. Food was nicely presented and it was very tasty. Very good service. Expensive but worth every penny. Recommended

What a treat, what a view & what a delight to have been treated to a bday meal at The Marine Room! We had the crab cake over soba noodle starter, the Bibb lettuce with goat cheese brûlée before we moved on to our mains. The size of the starters are very good. We could have easily just shared one... More

Marine Room has great food, but it's really the view you're there for. Sitting right on top of the waves!

We had a memorable dinner at the Marine Room last week. We dined on Sunday night and chose to order off the lobster menu. The lobster bisque was fantastic. It was a large portion of a rich and flavorful bisque. Next came a lobster tail dusted with pistachio crumbs. So good. Dessert was a trio of three different desserts-each one... More

Marine room would have been terrific. . . if it were half the price. I found the setting gorgeous and the service excellent; but the price was simply not worth it. There are better places to go with good views.

We had an excellent experience at the Marine Room last night. First, the service and attention was great and probably set the tone for the evening. The appetizers, the trio & the crab cake were delicious, and perfect size (not very big). We tried the lobster bisque soup and truffle-mushroom soup both very tasty and rich. The wine selection (Amarone,... More
