Another great dinner at Chez Michel. Love the pesto. The sword fish is always good as is the lamb and the haddock.

We were referred to try this restaurant for dinner. It was surprisingly good. I had the crab cakes which were extremely moist and flavorful. The waittress was very attentive and knowledgeable about the wines on the menu

We were planning to eat at a restaurant that was located on the water, so we could eat outside or at least look at the water while we dined. We of course wanted lobster, but I had a hankering for a steak too. The restaurant...More
