Enjoyed lunch here with a cod sandwich and the wife chose the spinach salad with blackened chicken. Had a great view of the harbor. Sarah was our server and she is great at her job, attentive, smiley. We enjoyed the Black Dog.

Trying not to be harsh, BUT, this is a tourist trap charging what the traffic will bear. Firstly, no drinks without food-a town bylaw. This raises the $. Second, grey goose is not served, and we were not the only patrons requesting, by far. Third,...More
