Great location- on the harbor, overlooking the marina. It was remodeled and the decor is gorgeous. Seafood is fresh - we enjoyed oysters and clams on the half shell, shrimp cocktail, and the smoked fish dip with crudités. Wine list is limited with by-the-glass selections needing improvement. Service was good and prices are as expected for such a view.

Cru is located at the end of Straight Wharf right on the harbor. We went on opening night, May 9 and sat at the back bar for drinks and appetizers. The service was great and both bartenders were very friendly. We had a couple of drinks, shrimp cocktail and lobster claw cocktails. All were outstanding. The innkeeper where we were staying told us Cru opened last year and became the instant hot spot restaurant. There's a great seating area right outside where you can wait and have a drink during the peak season.

I deeply miss the old Ropewalk restaurant that occupied this space however the Cru has stepped in admirably. My wife and I just got back from a weekend on the island and we had a very good lunch. The chilled seafood platter was awesome along with a few great drinks. The setting in the marina is fantastic. My only issue with this restaurant is the bar stools. The bar stools that they have are without a doubt the most uncomfortable stools that I have ever sat on. They were so uncomfortable that my wife and I who normally would have many a drink at an establishment like this decided to move on after we finished our lunch.

Its one of our favorites since they opened. Located on the marina, so sit in the back bar. Bartenders are friendly, we like to sit at the bar for lunch or diner.

Delicious calamari and mussel/frites. Packed for stroll, yet the service and quality was right up there. The hush puppies are not to be missed. See you in the spring..
