Food was fine but expensive. We had dinner outside and very much enjoyed the view. We have been dining here for years, through various owners. The restaurant seems to be lacking in organization and the manager clearly does not care. We had a rude waiter a year ago and we discussed the waiter with the manager at that time. We had not been back since but decided to give the restaurant another chance. We had the same waiter again. We thought perhaps he had changed, but he was as unfriendly, rude and as unattentive as last year. The waiters were assigned throughout the restaurant so that there were four different waiters in our outside section who all had one or two tables plus tables inside. This arrangement resulted in the waiters being absent most of the night. We wanted our bill but our waiter was no where to be found. We asked the very friendly waiter who was working the table next to us to please ask our waiter for the bill. He asked who our waiter was and I said I did not know his name because he did not introduce himself but that he was the “rude guy.” The nice waiter smiled and said “ I know who you mean” and he had yet another waiter bring our bill to us. We once again discussed our unfriendly waiter with the manager. We explained that we spoke with him last year about the same waiter and that we would not be returning. The manager said “ okay” and went back to cleaning up dishes. The poor service from a rude waiter and disorganized staffing assignments, along with an unconcerned manager made for an unpleasant dinner and the reason for my low rating.

Met some friends for dinner. 4 adults with 4 kids. Shared a bottle of wine and calamari to start. Entrees were generous, but prices were, I felt, a bit high. There was also a wedding reception and a 60th birthday hosted at the restaurant. The portions were such that after the meal I felt satisfied. The staff was helpful and accommodating to our kids.

We went to the Flying Bridge for a late afternoon meal. We had excellent cod sandwiches and wine. The food was excellent as was the friendly service. The view of the boats is ambiance. It was totally an enjoyable experience!

We tried four restaurants during our short trip, and one had a great view and lousy food, two had good views and good food, and the last had a lousy view and lousier food. Is lousier even a word? If you ordered their lobster tacos, trust me, lousier describes it perfectly.

But the Flying Bridge had a good view, good food and very good service. The drinks were good, and the prices were average for the area. We had a meal there and a late day snack, and were happy both times.

I recommend them.

Firstly, unsure who could review the Flying Bridge, and think its location is anything but beautiful. It is listed as waterfront, not "oceanfront." Visited again this past weekend, and everything was just great. There was a bit of a wait, but 20 minutes on a Saturday evening the day before fathers day wasn't a big deal. Our party of 4 had the Native Cod, Blackened Swordfish, Lobster, and the Ahi-tuna appetizer with a Caesar salad. Everything was cooked perfectly, and was simply delicious. Service was also prompt and friendly. The ice cream puff desert was enormous & big enough for 4 people to enjoy-- highly recommended.
