I've been dining at the Whitman House every summer for over 10 years. It gets crowded so reservations are a good idea. its a great spot when you are in the mood for something other than fried seafood. I LOVE the prime rib. The service has always been great and the atmosphere is very friendly. This would be a good choice for a fmaily who wants a slightly more upscale experience than the typical roadside lobster house. The gift shop next door is always a fun browse if you are waiting for your table or after dinner.
