Nice setting on the water

Great setting on the inlet. Casual atmosphere with musical entertainment. Food was good for a bar type setting. Service was excellent.

I rarely eat fried food, but had been craving shrimp and oysters. Theirs were recommended by the front desk person at Litchfield Inn, but the breading was heavy and the seafood was over cooked.
