Reviews

This is a Burlington classic. It's not necessarily the most fancy joint in town but the food is fresh and prepared well every time. The views also can't be beat!

Nice casual family dining (nice sea food when served fresh). Great friendly service & mostly good food at reasonable prices. Don’t order scallops on the weekend for they may not be fresh. I learned the hard way!

First we were the last people coming in for the night, no one rushed us, and the quality was outstanding. We had both the lobster bisque and seafood chowder, they were fabulous and extremely hot. I had a lobster which was tinder, hot, and delicious. My son' s fish was scrumptious.  The staff was friendly and helpful. Definitely worth ... read more

Having had to wait to get a seating, I was getting antsy and only a nice meal would have had me comment here. I have to say, the shrimp dish I took was very flavorful and the dessert was pleasant but not too heavy. Inside is outside since its view on the lake is very pleasant while enjoying a meal.

Hearty fare
Four of us visited and we all agreed that we’d had a very good time. We ate three different meals and all were tasty; service from our waitress was excellent and we thought it good value for money. The bonus was seeing the sun set...More ... read more

I have eaten here four times now and I have enjoyed each visit whether it was for lunch or dinner. I think the seafood is always good and the menu has a great variety. I like how they have both fried and broiled seafood options. The clam chowder is also pretty good. Beautiful views of the lake as well!

Lucky find !! Overlooks a marina. Sunset with mountains in the background was awesome !! Best was the food. Kims Scampi was fabulous; pretty much licked the plate. My fresh oysters, cup of chowder, and lobster roll might have been the freshest I've ever had ......... wonderful. We'll be back !!!!

Clam chowder was thick creamy and tasty. We had a sunset lake view table and enjoyed the food, craft cider and the service. Worth queueing for a table.

My girlfriend and I stopped by here this evening with some friends. Spencer, the bartender, made some of the best drinks we've had during our 3 & 1/2 years in Burlington! The Bahama mama (extra Bahama) was possibly the best drink Ive ever had, and the lakeside lemonade was a close second. Food-wise the clamchowder satisfied our chowd ... read more

Beautiful location. The staff is friendly but the food is just ok nothing to rave about. My biggest issue was the hornets/wasps on the outdoor deck.

Perhaps next season an exterminator w ... read more

So this is not fussy, but it IS fun.  The broiled haddock was meh - fairly flavorless, though well-cooked and moist.  The rice pilaf was a stand-out, as was my generously-sized Sauza margarita.  Husbie had lobster bisque - yum, and a very fresh, very tasty garden salad.  Beautiful outside deck to watch the Champlain sunset, plus grea ... read more

Great option for seafood when near the marina. They have a few speciality drinks to try and a great fish and chips. The view on the lake is also available from most table. Probably one of the best restaurant to walk to while waiting for the ferry.

My experience here was excellent. The calamari was delicious, as were the fried clams and macaroni and cheese. But the family favorite was the incredible lobster bisque. We will return here the next time we're in Burlington.
