The restaurant is attached to a house that was built is 1790. It was rolled to the current site in 1820. The dining area overlooks the whole property the cove and the ocean. We have several large vertical windows expanding the whole perimeter of dining room. You can eat and enjoy a spectacular view of coastal Maine.You may even catch a glimpse of a lobsterman loading his trap.
