“There is a longstanding restaurant in the front with excellent views, especially at sunset. I go there for the patio bar in the back. You will find boater's pulled up to enjoy the view and the music with a cocktail. They have some decent food options for a snack. They are pricey for what they are but do the trick. After all, you're there for the view.”

“The best ice cream in town! I grew up coming here. There's a bit of a wait at night on the weekends in particular. Grab a number and hang out on the benches outside, or go earlier in the day to be served faster. ”

“OK we hate to admit this but we counted and this place is three hundred slightly drunken steps from the inlet to the top of our beach street! You can even hang on to the chain link beach fence and guide your way back. Hahaha. This place serves food, liquor and there's an ice cream store there as well!”

Seafood Restaurant

“If you are looking for a place that is as far from a chain restaurant as a New England home converted to a restaurant, and you like seafood, this is the place I recommend. The tables may be a bit closer than you expect, and the noise level from other guests a bit louder, but someone the combination of white noise from all the chatter makes for a is very different and memorable shore experience.”
