The restaurant has lovely sea views and offers seating both inside and outside. Our party had the blackened tuna and scallops which were both excellent. The service was very good and attentive. The wines by the glass are way over priced but other we enjoyed both our dinner evenings. When we visited the hotel, the restaurant was opened only for breakfast and dinner. It would have been great if they also offered lunch as the bar menu for lunch is very limited.

We stayed at the Lowes Hotel on vacation and had breakfast twice here. Service was friendly and prompt. Coffee was served quickly. The food was very good. Recommend the traditional eggs Benedict and for sure the home granola yogurt dish. Prices are reasonable.

i enjoyed the food at the restaurant and the staff was extremely helpful. I liked the views of the beach but i did not find the restaurant to be cozy. I wish they would remodel this restaurant to make it more inviting.

The mussels in coconut milk were yummy. The brussel sprout salad was another one of my favorites.

Christmas day brunch for small family. Good selection but they have much more for their Easter offering. The usual omelette and carved meat stations with bakery & salad options. Beautiful view across the water.
