I'm pretty sure it is. You may want to give them a call (508) 645.3867 before heading over. If closed There's a good take out place across from the entry. I'd go just for the view. :)

Our restaurant was founded at the beginning of World War II by Napolean Madison, the Wampanoag tribal medicine man, and whaler. Presently it is owned by Napoleans son Luther, his wife Anne, and her son Cully. Much of the fish that we use is cought by Wampanoag people from the surrounding waters.
