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.

We had a very nice place overlooking the harbor. We ordered the fish platter and enjoyed the taste very much. Very attentive staff asking if everything is good. Also people who don’t like fish can find something to order. However the clear focus is on...More ... read more

We enjoyed a smooth, loaded with claim cooked perfectly, good chunky potatoe pieces in their award winning clam chowder. We followed up with lobster rolls. The lobster was sweet and had a good portion of the claw meat. It was not over dressed with Mayo...More ... read more

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

Service at the bar was above my own and my friends expectations truly. The bartender that goes by the name of Spencer was friendly, personable, and polite!

Yummy fresh seafood. Delicious lobster for dinner. Great beer. Fantastic key lime pie. Most of all fantastic location at the waterfront for spectacular sunsets or views of the lake. Then when your done you can walk the bike path for a bit of exercise.

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. Ordinary food might have been elevated had my family and others on the deck not spent 1/3 of our time hoping not to be stung and swatting them away. 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

Good food, great view, and decent service. The dinner plates looked more impressive and full of food than the dinner platters. A little odd, but otherwise a tasty meal.

Lovely view, nice wait staff and pretty good food, mostly fried but all in all a very pleasant meal.  Nice family place, not too expensive.

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.

We enjoyed dinner overall. The calm chowder could be thicker...but it had a great flavor. Our favorite dish was the lobster and shrimp with a mornay sauce! Oh yeah! The coleslaw was great. My kids didn't like the fried fish at all. It had a chemical taste to it. The wait-staff and view were great! We would go back if in the area. But ... read more
