I just love the atmosphere and the staff was excellent, very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately my meal wasn’t the best…the potato skin appetizer wasn’t hot…it was like it was assembled, then the cheese on top was quickly melted under the broiler, but the seafood and potato wedges underneath were lukewarm, at best. And sadly, the crabcakes were NOT chunks of jumbo lump and had a strong fishy smell and taste. I appreciate Management not charging me for the dinner portion. I would love to come back, and make these criticisms as hopefully constructive input.

We really enjoyed our experience at Cedar Land and Sea restaurant. The food was excellent and the staff was very welcoming. When they heard we were celebrating my sister-in-law's birthday, she received a thoughtful gift. And I was able to reserve the table I wanted for the occasion so we were all very pleased with the service.

I had mistakenly made a reservation for the wrong day. They went out of their way to fit us in for dinner and were able to get us a table outside. Food was delish!

This is the most charming gem of a restaurant but last night was such an unbelievably remarkable dining experience ever. The owner, Barbara, is truly an earth angel that walks amongst all of us. Of course, we picked our favorite restaurant, Cedar, to celebrate my breast cancer journey and survivorship. We were warmly welcomed by the sweet, kind and lovely hostess and then by our phenomenal waitress (Mary). I was beyond touched when our table centerpiece was a gift from the owner, Barbara. The gift was a congratulation bag full of goodies for me~wow...just wow! The tears of happiness and gratitude flowed after seeing her handmade card etc. Barbara then came and introduced herself to our table. She is such an inspiration and so full of selflessness and kindness with her spirit and words of grace. No wonder this is our favorite restaurant in this area and always will be! The food is always beyond exceptional, the staff is amazing and the owner (Barbara) makes you feel at home. She will alway hold a special place in my heart and touched my heart forever! I will cherish last night forever because of her thoughtfulness and warm-heartedness. xx~Kris

This was our first time at Cedar however it will not be our last. From the warm greeting to prompt seating to a sweet server to a delicious meal... the entire experience was a 10! They even acknowledged our anniversary with a card signed by the whole staff, 2 potted flowers and a bag of chocolate treats! Everyone was so kind and genuine. Thank you!!!!
