See my review of the Inn. The restaurant had very good food and services, serves breakfast all day (!!), and serves cold beer. I was happy to have both food and lodging in one location.

Waited for 45 minutes for breakfast, waitress brought order to table and only 2 orders out of 8 were correct. Had to wait additional 15 minutes while breakfast remade. It was good, manager comp'd the meal for the whole table. Probably wont go back. .

Breakfast not cooked to order. Toast really just warmed bread. Coffee not so good. Clean and quick service. Probably won't go again.

Average food and slightly higher prices (the season is very short). Service is good and it appears that the fish entries are very generous (we were sorry we did not order them).

Stopped here for breakfast yesterday and we were greeted by a smiling face that directed us to our table. The dinning room was newly decorated very tastefully in a nautical theme.

While searching town for breakfast after passing on the hotel's limited offering, we stumbled upon this one. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but What a find! This one was closed when we first went by. But fortunately it opened by time we passed it again on the way out of town. Nothing else was open. We were... More

We had dinner twice at the Embers, and really enjoyed it. My favorite was the whitefish with sesame crackers, but everything else was really good, we were a big table and everyone loved their food. Good wine, and a great cocktail at the bar too. The dinning room is bright, clean and nicely decorated, while the bar is cosy, and... More
