Went for breakfast early on a Sunday morning. The location was great by the sound with a cool breeze blowing. We ordered eggs Benedict expecting to get the best food from such a high end place, Not. How do you make food with no flavor?...More

For breakfast, the egg white omelette, blueberry pancakes and banana bread were delicious. For lunch, we enjoyed the lobster roll and hamburger. We found the chicken and lobster salad to have way too much mayo. Dinner choices were varied for most palettes.
