Sitting by the window looking out over the harbor will win you over. It's romantic and cozy with great food, nice wine and a very friendly staff. Go to watch the sun set and enjoy the view.

We stayed at the Executive Inn which is about .2 miles away and a short walk. We went in for lunch and were hooked on the excellent bar service. We kept the meals to lighter fare until the last day. The bucket of muscles is a good deal and the drink pours make you want to stay longer. We ate dinner there the final day of our stay and the food was good. I would go back there for sure if staying in the area.

Whew, portions are huge!

We went with friends and neither of us had been to this restaurant before. It's on the water with a view of the boat harbor. We're told it was built in the late 19th century. I don't know if it's true, but it did look old.

Interior is rustic and seemingly well worn. It had an expansive beer, wine and cocktail menu. At first glance prices seem a bit high until you see the portions you receive. None of us "big eaters" could finish our meals. Good news! Leftovers to take home for the next day!

Our waiter wasn't overly friendly or helpful. When asked about the different beer choices he couldn't tell us much. Tables are small which proved to be a bit of a challenge with the large plates, but staff is right there to help clear completed items out of the way.

After lunch we went up into the lighthouse pub. This is a "peanut shells on the floor" kind of place. Not a particularly clean place but comfortable for a glass of wine or a cocktail.

Parking is across the street in what appears to be office building parking.

Lunch for two, with drinks, cup of soup and half bucket of clams: $66.78

Very good menu choices and very fresh. Must try there Chowder. Yummy! Service was outstanding would go there again and again. The parking isn't the best as you must park on the street and walk but who cares for this kinda service and food.

A great place to have an afternoon cocktail and meal while sitting on their deck overlooking the estuary. Looking at the boats docked at the harbor and the ones going up and down the estuary is so peaceful.
