Fodor's Review

Open since 1921, this casual dockside restaurant with mahogany wainscoting is the town's most famous eatery. Most people flock to the deck here for beer, bay views, and seafood. 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; reservations aren't taken for deck seating or weekend lunch.
