“ We love Sarahs, they have an extensive menu with lots of fresh seafood, chowder, sandwiches, Pizza, kids menus and salads. The outdoor deck overlooking the harbor is the preferred seating but they have huge windows so on cooler evenings grab a window seat. We never have room for Sarahs amazing cakes and pies so we suggest you take them to go.”

“During our September 2018 visit, we ate here 3 times. The first we had a lunch of excellent Clam chowder that was actually mostly clams. We met friends another evening and had good drinks and a fantastic Scallop Carbonara. We were so pleased with the food that we returned for our last evening and were treated to a very competent entertainer singing and playing 70-80s pop music ( eagles etc) This time we sat in the lively bar and again had a fine meal. This place is popular and getting more so, good food. good drinks, good staff and good prices.”
