My friend has suggested for months that we meet for dinner at this place. I had not been there but heard good things about it. Finally I took her up on her suggestion and we had a great meal. We started by sharing a refreshing beet salad with the biggest beets we had ever seen. My friend's entrée was a bowl of clam chowder which she really enjoyed. I opted for something much larger -- the seafood pot pie. This generous, beautifully seasoned offering was comprised of lobster, shrimp, scallops, haddock and asparagus baked in a light lobster sherry cream sauce, topped with puff pastry. (Hey, if I'm going out for seafood I want to make sure I'm full.) My friend pointed out that the restaurant recently changed some of its layout and I was most impressed. You will see a big oval bar with adjacent table seating, a lower level area with booth seating, a main dining room and an L-shaped waterside dining room. Everything is open, airy and inviting. The view is great, too -- but the food is far better than some of The Pilot House's nearby counterparts.
