Fodor's Review

Overlooking the ferry landing and the entire harbor, the open-to-the-salt-air Bluewater Avalon offers freshly caught fish, savory chowders, and all manner of shellfish. If they're on the menu, don't miss the swordfish steak or the sand dabs. The dining room has an understated nautical vibe. Fishing rods serve as room dividers, and plank floors lend a casual feel inside and out. Vintage black-and-white photos aknowledge the island's famed sports fishing legacy. The wraparound patio is the preferred spot to dine, but beware of aggressive seagulls that may try to snatch your food. Happy hour attracts a crowd for the craft beers, potent cocktails, and tasty bites like popcorn shrimp and oyster shooters.
