“Upscale Food and Stunning View”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

We happened to get a call from a "foody" friend while we were walking around Perkins Cove at lunch time. She suggested we try M C, and I'm glad she did! Walking through the front door you know you're in a bit of an upscale eatery for the Perkins Cover area. We were able to sit towards the rear of the restaurant, directly on the beach. The only thing separating us from the ocean was 1/4" of glass! I was in the mood for lighter far and tried the peekytoe crab appetizer. Add that to a bowl of delicious chowder and you have a full blown meal. My wife and daughter also thought their lunches were outstanding. They were hearty enough I got to share with them. While I don't knock the other local restaurants, you definitely know you've moved up the restaurant ladder when you dine at M C's. It's worth paying a bit more to enjoy the experience they serve up.

“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

M C Perkins Cove has great food (they managed to cook everyone's food to their exact preferences). The view is also amazing. While the bar downstairs is a little small, it is a great place to stop in and get a beer while watching a baseball game- truly a great summer evening.

“Disappointed!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

Lunch for four, wonderful view, restaurant needs updating, service nonexistent, food, (fish and chips)
Cold! Highly over rated and over priced. Go for the view but just have a drink! Sorry mark and Clark but you need some over sight here!
