The Dolphin is a local favorite. The new building is gorgeous and takes full advantage of the great location. Love the atmosphere and the food is always outstanding!

I have frequented the restaurant many times, and have never been disappointed. I love taken our out of state visitors there to enjoy the delicious lobster stew and blueberry muffins. The views of the bay are gorgeous. The wait staff is always attentive and friendly.

I think it was around $30-32 at the time and worth every penny! The seafood lasagna was absolutely delicious and worth the $25 too!
