BG's Boathouse is a nice cozy restaurant on the water. The afternoon was perfect and the pictures were charming. The lobster roll was very good and the beer was cold. What else can a man ask for. Highly recommended.

We typically visit during the week but decided to try it on a Friday night. No waiting to sit inside and Jaime D is a fantastic server. As advertised, fish is fresh and we both had a great meal.

We had lunch there on a Saturday, no wait for a table. The fried clams were delicious, fresh and possibly the best I've had. The lunch portion is a great size and you have a choice of sides including coleslaw if you don't want fries.
