Here with another couple lured by great views of the river/bay. Due to the oppressive heat here today...high nineties... we decided to dine inside but still nice views of the water and sailboats. We felt the sea food was adequate but maybe the less then clean interior and many flies may have detracted from our dinners. But in the end... More

On a hot day, but with a cool breeze out on the patio..my aunt and I ate lunch at this casual and good eatery! Coconut shrimp soft taco's for me...which were really delish, having a fruity salsa and crispy shrimp, was an ample serving..crispy chips rounded out the dish! Aunt had a hamburger and also loved it! Not a fancy... More

A picture perfect July day, a host of sailboats and powerboats, and a good meal mean happy people at The Masthead! We were out wandering in the area, and decided to check TripAdvisor for a nearby, casual restaurant. We were lured by the "come on" of $3 Margaritas. Husband and I ordered crab twins. These were crisp English muffins, topped... More

This is the place to get drinks and a sandwich while waiting for the sun to set. Nothing fancy, just good food and good vibes!

We went with friends of ours on Sunday afternoon for a late lunch/early dinner and sat under their large outside covered patio area with spectacular water views wherever you sit. We ordered lunch rather than dinner entrees. Our server was friendly and attentive. The food is good not exceptional with adequate portions and plenty of seasoned potato chips to fill... More

The food was mediocre, but good. The view and just relaxing on the river made up for everything else. The wait staff were attentive in a downhome style. Place to go if you enjoy relaxing on the water's edge and watching the sun go down while you have your dinner.

Menu at restaurant is more expensive than the one on line. No vegetarian entrees. But biggest complaint was how they did to accommodate us: we arrived at 4:15 Sunday afternoon thinking we would be certain to get a table on the water. Plenty of empty tables. We were shown a table outside but well back from the water. When we... More

We ate a dozen large steamed crabs w/old bay seasoning on them and they cost $75 per dozen. They were very meaty and fresh. The medium crabs were much smaller and they were $45 per dozen.The Cream of Crab Bisque was also delicious. Relaxing atmosphere and beautiful view of the Trend Avon River. The staff was friendly and the service... More

We found this place only because we were going to rent bikes at Dockside. Dockside was closed and so we stopped to have a drink. The view was so nice and the waitress very hospitable about our just sitting to have two root beers and two coffees. We liked it so much we came back for dinner. The price of... More

I have returned here on my second trip and it does not disappoint. The meal was excellent and the service great. We always sit on the patio/deck on the water and eat.
