Perfect spot to grab lunch, take in the views and have a quick bite while shopping in down town. Everything we ordered was excellent, so no worries here when it comes to the menu. Ed took great care of us for lunch.

Great place to lunch and the setting is casual and sporty especially on sunny afternoons but the food is well worth the price and there is a diverse choice of beers and wines.

Enjoyable lunch at the Tavern. Very lively atmosphere and great specials. My husband and I both had the chowder and pastrami sandwich and it was tasty. Downstairs was very noisy, so we decided on the upstairs balcony. We had wonderful service and a fantastic view...More

This has been one of our favorites die many years. We look for a good table in the sun sometime and other times in the shade. Fish sandwich is always delicious, lobster roll, a splurg, is also delicious. It is a wonderful people watching spot,...More

This is a big, tourist restaurant at the other end of the pier where the ferries come in. As such, it is ideally located to catch the crowds coming off the boats. It has a large, lively outdoor area with a young vibe. There is...More
