Fodor's Review

Open since 1921, this casual dockside restaurant with mahogany wainscoting is the town's most famous eatery. Today most people flock here for the deck, where out-of-towners and old salts sit shoulder to shoulder for bay views, beer, seafood, and Ramos fizzes. The lunch menu has the usual suspects—burgers, sandwiches, salads, fried fish with tartar sauce—and you'll sit on plastic chairs at tables covered with blue-and-white-checked oilcloths. At night you can find standard

seafood dishes with vegetarian and meat options. Mind the seagulls; they know no restraint. Expect a wait for outside tables on sunny summer days or weekends; there are no reservations for deck seating or weekend lunch.
