New American Restaurant
“This is a wonderful restaurant that you want to take time with. The kitchen is small so you want to allow yourself some small plates over time with a bottle of excellent wine. The setting is lovely and cozy, and food is exquisite! ”

Seafood Restaurant
“Archer’s on the Pier is located on Rockland’s waterfront. Enjoy an innovative menu for lunch and dinner created with the best sustainable seafood and local produce. On Sunday, we offer a light fare for brunch while you enjoy Jazz playing softly in the background. Sit out on our large deck and watch the windjammers drift by as you relish the fresh sea air. ”
