The entire family enjoyed breakfast (multiple times) and dinner. Large selection of fresh and creative food made this a "go to" choice during our trip. The space is well arranged and not the typical "touristy" environment. Excellent service and very kid friendly. Highly recommended.

Very popular, warm and cozy. Enjoyed the warm bread. Lobster dinner was terrific, bluefish was overdone. Server was very accommodating. Good selection for children. Reservations recommended. They open at 5:30 and people were waiting in the rain to get in.

I don't think there is a lunch menu. The restaurant is open until 1 p.m. on Sundays, 11:30 a.m. the other days of the week for breakfast.
