This place is big ? it?s a lunch stop for bus tours ? but doesn?t feel institutional. It serves good basic fare, mostly seafood. I had grilled swordfish with a subtle, fresh salsa; the vegetables weren?t overcooked; and the rice had a nice light flavor. The table beside us had huge plates of steamed clams and lobster roll mix with a fresh roll for stuffing. I also got crab cakes to go ? delicious. I thought the prices were high for what you get, though ? you?re paying a premium for the location.

And the location is very pretty ? right out in the harbor, next to the whale watching outfit. I was there on an overcast day, but the view pictured is supposed to be lovely at sunset.
