Nice restaurant for typical American lunch

We were with young teenagers. Service was great. Lobster sandwich is great, as well as the oysters.. This restaurant is situated in a nice area.

Famous for its surf spot. Beautiful only because I grew up here. The beach is terribly over crowed in the Sumer. Best time to go is the winter.

Overrated surfers beach. Use to be one of the better beaches for locals many years ago. Now, just an overrated beach for surfer dudes. Beach has been washed out by bad storms over the pass two decades. What beach that is left is sand trucked in every year at the tax payers expense to please a high percentage of those... More

I liked the beach, ocean and shorebirds and the land birds that find shelter there. I will add Fort Pond. I am disappointed that hunting is allowed there. Many species are disappearing. Canvasbacks are seriously declining, and yet hunting persisits. Scoters are also experiencing problems. NO ONE MONITORS to see if quotas of killings are exceeded. Also, sometimes hunters shoot...

BEAUTIFUL!!! Went down Ditch Plains Road and caught the beach down a side roach. Several side roads lead straight to the beach. Best spot was near these rocks. Waves were awesome and the morning sun shines down so warm and nice.

We drove to Ditch Plains Sunday morning to watch the ocean. It was cool and breezy and the waves higher and wilder than usual due to the hurricane off of Bermuda. We were treated to a show of about 2 dozen surfers bobbing and riding the waves. A delighful morning.

We love to walk to the ditch to watch the surfers. We really hope that the new owners of the East Deck don't discourage the surfers from coming there.

This is a great beach for anything you want it to be from surfing to relaxing. If you don't surf, it a fun place to watch some awesome ( and not so awesome) surfers.
