My daughter recommended this restaurant to my friend and me last weekend. We stopped for lunch during our shopping trip and I'm so glad we did. As a New Englander, I'm very fond of chowders and discovered a fabulous one here. Their scallop chowder had...More

Always a good meal and good service at the Mooring. Long established and visited by the natives, you shouldn’t be disappointed. Try the bag of doughnuts, one of their best appetizers. (They are not your typical doughnuts... that’s all I will say)...

This place is nice for a meal by the water, and big enough for large parties/families. We dined on a Sunday night in October, and the place was filled. The staff was friendly and helpful, and after a few hiccups with dishes and timing, we...More

The Mooring is always great! Upscale atmosphere with great food and service. I would recommend it for a business lunch or date. Try the lobster bisque!

Friendly staff with good food and drink. Make sure you walk there, otherwise it's $7/hour for parking in the lot out front even in the off season, no validation
