Fodor's Expert Review Runaway Grill
This favorite with sportfishermen ("You hook 'em, we cook 'em"), 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. Their location, overlooking the marina, offers the best view in town. For those who want to make the most of happy hour, ask about their free marina shuttle service.
