One of our "must do" things was Oistin's Friday Fish Fry but due to scheduling difficulties we went on thursday instead. No crowds, great food and quick service.

Pats Fry is an absolute go to, the best flying fish, huge portions of macaroni pie and coleslaw. Really nice atmosphere and local dance crew performed on stage. Cheap beer at any of the bars too.

Some of the outlets are open everyday, but it is much quieter than a Friday. Some open just in the evening. You can usually eat there most days but it is very different from the Friday Fish Fry which is loud and very busy!
