Mission on the Bay has a great waterfront location. The views are terrific. The brunch options are plentiful, the food is very good, and service is good too.

Sunday lunch for three adults with tip cost $100. No alcohol. The food was prepared well. There was no wait. The dining room is surprisingly large. One lobster frittata, one fried fish, and one steak tips, with fried calamari for an appetizer.

Big window view opens onto the ocean. The food is great but pricey. The service is excellent. You will love the urbanish feel. Restaurant offers a full bar. I really enjoyed the veggie melt. The veggies were cooked perfectly.

New rooftop bar with enclosure and fabulous view of Nahant Bay and Boston is worth the visit. Reservations for main dining area recommended on weekends.
