Second trip to Bowens memorable again. Caesar salad expertly prepared with real anchovies, lobster roll poached in butter was succulent, and the fish and chips had two pieces of meaty cod not too battered. Unassuming server and a nice table on the wharf dock.

We had a great meal here with our family. Food was phenomenal, I recommend the Atlantic Salmon and Risotto. We dined with two toddlers and we really appreciated the prompt service.
