what a great spot to sit and look at the water and have a snack. Quite pricey for the offerings. We didn't order the lobster sandwiches but wish we had as they looked great when we saw others ordering them.

We had dinner here at 6:00 and were not very hungry so ordered salads and shared a small app. Love the bayside location and the small restaurant with great outside seating. Staff was attentive including the owner. Food was good. Will go back tomorrow night...More

We come back here every year. The menu is fairly short because they focus on doing a few things really well. Great setting with a view over to Maine. Food is consistently the best in town (or could be a tie with the Rossmount).

Just on the edge of town but within walking distance from hotels, this little place was recommended to us by the owner of Treadwell Inn. The owner was bright and cheerful and even though the restaurant wasn't open yet, we were offered a glass of...More
