Fun place to take the family - very casual and great view! We did whale watching and then sat to eat delicious New England Fare! Good for kids too! Nice bar with all the fixings as well!

We arrived about 7:00 on Friday evening and did not have to wait for a table, which is unusual for the area. Food and service were great.
