Find a place at a colorful picnic table and soak in all the beauty of the Connecticut River (and views!) while dining, casual stayle at the Blue Oar. Featured in the book, "1000 Things to See Before You Die", this place is a real gem. A very relaxed setting next to a boat marina and lots of fun to watch people pull in on their boats.
You need to arrive by 5pm on a week night and late afternoon on weekends as the place fills up quickly. There is a maximum time limit of 90 minutes per table. You pick your table and go up the stairs to place your order. Bring your own wine, wine glasses (or beer!) along with your table cloth and candles and you'll fit right in!
The food is tasty -- burgers, chicken sandwiches and salads are priced right. Portobello mushroom sandwich is yummy. The entrees are a bit expensive for the quality. The lobster roll is my favorite. Desserts are also wonderful. Remember to bring cash, no credit cards accepted.
