My 92-year old mother dined here before, with a group from her assisted living center. She enjoyed a great seafood lunch here, so we were eager to try this ourselves for the first time. We were not disappointed.
There was plenty of parking, even though it was lunch time on Labor Day weekend. We were promptly seated in the dining room overlooking the deck, which offers a fine view of the Sagamore Creek tidal inlet. We noticed the specials board that listed six types of grilled fish. My companion selected the mahi mahi. Mom and I both had the swordfish. We were offered two grilling choices, with or without blackening/Cajun spices (we chose without). The fried mushroom appetizer was very hot and tasty. Both the swordfish and mahi-mahi were done perfectly; the mahi mahi was cooked through, as my companion requested. The French fries were crispy, without any lingering flavor of grease. The rice which came with one order was a unique combination of several grains, lightly seasoned. The coleslaw was not too heavily saturated with mayonnaise, and not too sweet or sour.
Our server memorized the complete order, including drinks, sides, and how we wanted our fish grilled. She stopped by our table several times to get a second round of drink orders, offer dessert, or just to check on how we were doing. She had to cover our table and some out on the open deck, which was not an easy task. The dessert we shared, peanut butter pie, was like a Reese's cup with cream on top--to die for.
We rate BG's right up there with the best seafood restaurants on the New England seacoast where we have dined. Yes, they serve their food on paper plates with plastic utensils, but that is typical of summer seacoast restaurants in this region. We hardly noticed because the fish was so tasty.
The lunch portions are enormous. We hesitate to dine here at dinner simply because we don't think we could eat the dinner portion. BG's closes from late October to St. Patrick's Day, so they do offer a 7-month season, an advantage over many other seasonal restaurants in the area that are open only from mid-May to mid-October.
