Lovely view of the harbor. Service was fine. Long-board salmon was perfect. Blackened snapper was also excellent. We were in the upstairs room which had the view but it was small so reservations are warranted. Service was attentive if in the "glib convivial" side--not objectionable...More

The Schooner Restaurant is in town and easy to get to. The food is excellent and the seafood always so fresh and prepared just right. Lots of choices, even the ribs are to die for.

We had lunch here which tasted great. Large selection of beer to choose from. We met a lovely English couple during lunch and spent another hour just talking even though we had already paid our bill which was no problem at all.
