Midweek visit, no waiting unlike weekends. Have eaten here several times over the years. Food is always good, very light batter and plentiful. Prices are set for tourists. Basic dinner; med shrimp, mini clam plate, 2 sodas and small lobster bisque= $50. 11.5 months of the year I'm landlocked so it's a small price to pay for real New England seafood.

A sunset dinner here is always on our summer to-do list. The fried plates are plentiful and tasty with a light batter. The lobsters are delicious! Sunset views are available at picnic tables inside or out. And... to avoid having to rely on a table (they go fast), bring your beach chairs and blankets and carve out your own space for dinner. Space is available for this purpose.

Enjoy the food and the beautiful sunset over the Bay. Then stroll to the adjacent State Park at Halibut Point (also on the summer to-do list.

Beautiful view! Delicious food! The wait was long, but they let you sit outside and enjoy the view. The night we were there, they were surprised by the turnout and actually ran out of food and had to close early!!

This has such a great atmosphere. The sunset here is to say the least amazing. It was a "classy summer casual". The food portions were good and the flavor well done. We ordered the mini fisherman's platter and it was enough for two people. The picnic tables were fun outside. This will become our family favorite for sure:)
Enjoy this treasure with your family. After a long day at the beach who wants to sit in a crammed restaurant with kids when you can casually eat the same high quality in a more relaxed atmosphere. Canned sodas and you can byob.... Go, sit, and relax:)
