Stopped in for breakfast. View is awesome....Haystack rock right out the window. Breakfast was a little pricey but quality was very good. Home made bread, good presentation etc. Service was good as well.

This comfortable spot offers excellent food with a wonderful view. Clam chowder was a nice starter. While the food is great, don't overlook the cocktails. The bar staff is quite capable to meet your needs. Enjoy the view.

It is recommended to reserve, and ask for a window seat! Although, the night I went, I reserved, but there was a mix up and we ended up waiting for a table anyways, but it wasn't too bad.

Thank you for your interest in the Wayfarer. We have upper patio seating and a lower lawn area. We allow dogs in the lower lawn area as long as they are tied up and they are picked up after. We hope to see you soon!
