Fodor's Review

A favorite with sportfishermen ("You hook 'em, we cook 'em"), this is the town's best place for seafood, serving everything from shrimp scampi to fresh tuna with mushrooms to bouillabaisse and paella. You can also get hearty burgers or a handful of Mexican dishes, and there's a kids' menu. You won't find any billfish (like marlin or swordfish) on the menu, owing to the restaurant's conservation policy, but the back wall is covered with pictures of them—and their proud

reelers. Weathered fishing caps hang from the bar's ceiling.

Good Fish

I had some outstanding mahi mahi here. They also have a surprisingly large wine selection and great desserts. It was a little on the pricey side but overall I had a great meal.
