We stopped at Windswept in late September just before the harvesting time for cranberries. Consequently, we saw them in full growth with lots of cranberries on the bushes. We were not familiar with cranberry bogs so this was an interesting quick stop.

Having been on-island for the past 20 summers I would recommend The Fairgrounds, Lolo Burger, The Sea Grille for a great lunch, Easy Street Cafe, and/or Brotherhood of Theives as good and less expensive places to eat. MES
