Can't beat the view at the foot of the Nubble Light House. Staff was excellent friendly and efficient. Large varied menu. Had the Shore dinner which was good. Excellent steamers, ok clam chowder, non-local corn (didn't expect otherwise!), perfectly boiled small lobster. Will return

Just tables. Dinner is hectic - I'd vote for a late lunch, if you can.
