The food here is excellent, with lots of choices of very fresh local fish. First rate preparation, presentation, taste. Decor is modern and, unfortunately, noisy. Our server was very good, but there were only two in the entire place, so service was not good and...More

Went on a Sunday for a late lunch. Food was really good, but service was a bit slow (one bartender & one server on duty). Beer selection was ok, but it would have been nice to see a wider variety of local, craft brews.

Elisabeths is in my neighborhood and how lucky I am. I have not a moments hesitation to take my out of town guests there. They are always happy with the food and the service.

Local " townie" joint. Limited menu that hasn't changed in years . Cold metallic chairs and tables. Full bar but small. Good for fish or scallops mostly.

Excellent! Near the ferry terminal. Nice eclectic atmosphere. Mostly seafood, but they do have pizza and burgers. We had the salmon and the cassoulet! Both were delicious!
