Best outdoor location for drinks/meal. Overlooking inlet with boats, water, sun. Basic seafood dishes are good. Pricey. Service hit or miss. Try for lunch as tends to be less crowded.

Food is blah. Lobster bisque continually tastes like it was from a can. Service is fine. Menu is not very big. The only reason this place is still in business is because it used to be good, and is the biggest tourist restaurant.
