We had an excellent dinner, served professionally. I had the mussels and clams appetizer which was excellent. My husband had the corn soup - also excellent. For entrees we had the Mahi-Mahi and the lobster special. Both of these meals could not have been any better. We will definitely return. It is a BYOB .
Wonderful meal and service. Such a pleasure to be there.

We dined at the Poached Pear while visiting Point Pleasant. The second we walked in the door, we were greeted and shown to our table by one of the owners. The food was absolutely wonderful. I had filet mignon, and my husband had veal tenderloin. We do not usually order dessert, but we did, and it was one of the best desserts I have ever had. I ordered the key lime pie special, and my husband ordered the flourless chocolate cake. The service was excellent. This was truly one of the best dining experiences we have ever had.

Went there for 25th Wedding Anniversary while on vacation. Had mussels and clams from daily special menu....outside the portion, it was reallr tasty.
Poached salad was excellent. Entree of rack of lamb could have made more meat, but was really good. Only somewhat so so item was the lemon napoleon dessert.
Service was very attentive and would recommend ti anyone.

My husband and I ate here on March 29, 2017 for our anniversary. It was recommended by a coworker of mine and the food was excellent. We both had the lobster bisque which was very good, followed by the Poached Pear Salad which was absolutely delicious. We both had one of the specials that was Maine lobster tail and claw out of the shell, poached in a saffron sauce, over a crab cake, inside a wonton shell, with sautéed spinach over mashed potatoes. Then we each got two desserts! The pineapple sorbet was really good and so was the Rene brûlée! We will definitely eat here again!

This place is located in the perfect spot, in Point. You can stroll around after dinner and enjoy the little shops around the area. The food was good and so was the service. I will be returning for sure!
