As season ticket holders for the Theatre-By-The-Sea, we finally decided to have dinner at the Bistro after our last show. The Bistro is very pleasant, wait staff are attentive and we had a lovely dinner. Will undoubtedly return in the future.

Monday night. Not too busy. Excellent salmon and linguine with seafood. Hope the show is half as enjoyable. Summers in New England and theater by the sea bring back so many memories of civility in America. I was not born too soon!

We went to a wedding reception here following a ceremony on the nearby beach. Buffet was very good. Pre-theater dinner choices are plentiful. Consider it for a great summer evening of entertainment with Theater By The Sea's outstanding summer series performed on the historical grounds.

We strolled over for an early dinner after viewing a performance at Theater by the Sea. I thought they might be crowded during that period between the matinee and evening performances, but they were not. The menu is small, but everything was prepared and presented...More
