Visiting on business, this place came highly recommended both by the hotel (Amanda at the ES Airport) and friends of friends. It didn't disappoint. We went on a Tuesday night after a long drive from Portland. No need for reservations, we were greeted warmly and sat with a great view of the water. The menu wasn't huge which to me is a sign of a classy place. The Chowder was excellent & filling - the way it should be. I had the blackened salmon on sticky rice - I highly recommend it! I give it 5 stars because it hit all the right spots - atmosphere, views, food quality, service, etc.
Make the drive, it's worth it!
