A must for all visitors! Local historic hotel and fine dining restaurant.

Neptune Bar is a great place to chill with a mix of locals and visitors. If you see soft shell crab on the specials order twice! Winter snowbirds bring lively music to the cozy space. The main dining room is white linen, fine dining. The food is pricey, masterful and worth a visit. This is the... read more

Very nice accommodations, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Historical Inn that has been kept up nicely. The cozy, and I mean cozy bar is just right for a pre dinner drink or after dinner drink. A favorite of locals. The restaurant is excellent; food delicious and perfectly prepared. Only negative is that the specials were the same... More

Our server, Dawn, made the evening! Thanks, Dawn, for your fun upbeat personality and for steering us to great eats and interesting combinations. I am in search of a french vinaigrette to pair with my blue cheese dressing! You made a good meal into a great evening.

This was a very nice dinner place in a mostly casual town. That being said, you can still dress casual. I had the seared tuna special and it was excellent. We shared the crab stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer and it was very good but could have a bit more spice. My wife had the red fish piccata which was... More

We did not get to see anyone while we were there but the person at the museum told us to stop by and see the inside. Plenty of beautiful woodwork and looks like a nice place to stay. The restaurant even though we did not eat there was huge and has a good size menu.

The food and service were really top notch. I started with a vine-ripened tomato salad with fresh basil and capers. It was fantastic! This was followed by broiled shrimp with wonderful fresh vegetables. My friend had grouper that she said was really, really good. Oh, and they served us wickedly delicious and large hot rolls. The owner, Peter, made sure... More

A very nice place for couples or family dining. The freshest chef prepared food around or take a drink at the back bar.

We liked the fresh seafood and the excellent service. Our waitress knew what she was doing and managed to cover 6-7 tables quite well.

We have been eating at the Island Hotel Restaurant for years. So my wife and I decided to go back this weekend. The first hint that this was not going to be a good experience was when the server gave us the menu and it was totally different from the all the other times we have been there. The second... More
