Best calamari I have had in my life! On the other hand, the oysters, which came from VA, were small and tasteless. Definitely do not order them until the local oysters are back in. Scallops were good and tuna was fair.

My wife and I had lunch here late June 2018. We sat on the porch and enjoyed the water view and the people watching. Service was great and the clam chowder was outstanding.

We are local to the area and consider the Inn an excellent dining and entertainment option. We love the deck overlooking the harbor on a summer evening. Food is great and hosts charming.
