I've wanted to try this restaurant for years. Finally did and found the food to be quite good, at about the price I would expect to pay for this quality (entrees about $20 each).

I had a chicken/potatoe/leek soup (creamy and flavorful), Maryland crabcakes (light, not gooey), and coconut sorbet for desert. Others in my party had lightly grilled flounder and a seafood bisque that was excellent.

All in all, the food here is tasty and light and the service up to par. The dining room is dark and spot-lit, but the crowd was lively. There was even a marriage proposal (at another table) while we dined.

actually got sick after eating. Steak meat in fajitas may have been culprit.

Cafe Breezes is like home away from home but with a 5 star restaurant feel. They dont serve your typical bar. They have salamon fettucini, lamb chops, grilled garlic chicken. Food you would not see in a corner bar. The ambience is excellent and s ...

Club Breezes is fortunate to have survived an ever changing economy, yet remain consistant in the quality of service to its patrons! 2013 will prove to be a banner year for Club Breezes, because of the visionary Victor Ragan along with his partners ...

We went here with a large business party. All food was served at the same time, all hot and everyone thought the seafood was amongst the best they have had. Generous portions. Nice presentation. Pleasant and somewhat stylized environment.

This place acts as if you are going to be a one time customer. Almost as if they think the majority of the people entering are tourists.

The food was dry, bread was stale, etc.
It is amazing this company continues to survive
