Whitefish chowder and planked white fish were both very good. Porch was a nice place to sit on the summer evening. Drinks at $12.50 were expensive.

We went because we had heard about this dish and it did not disappoint. Enough to share with a perch salad, we were very happy. Lovely waitstaff and front porch dining. Excellent value.

Off the Main Street, a Grand Hotel owned restaurant. Lunch was good. The Lobster Bisque was very good and my prime rib dip was prepared without bread for my allergies. Huge portions . A little pricey but very good.
