This quaint restaurant was a great destination for dinner. The service was very good. The food was excellent. In spite of acoustics that made the establishment very noisy, we had an excellent experience.

Having a name like Dinky's made us assume it would be casual, easy going and affordable. After entering, we were a bit put off by the atmosphere, a bit less laid back then we expected. When we looked at the menu, it was a bit out of our range so we left.

My wife and I were visiting the area. We had dinner here. The menu gives excellent selections from fresh seafood to steaks and rack of lamb. We were promptly seated. They were busy.

Our waitress was very pleasant and recommended items. We had the seafood platter. All were cooked very well and just right. We had creme brûlée for dessert. I had a cocktail well made.

I would recommend eating here. They do not take reservations. It is on the second floor overlooking the marina and sound. The view is fantastic.

We had a gorgeous view of the sunset. Calamari appetizer and Food was very delicious. We were seated right away but it did take a while for the food to come out. Our server Robbie was excellent though as he came around to check on us often and apologized for the extra wait from the kitchen. Wait from the kitchen is the only reason why it’s not 5/5.
