Really nice breakfast menu. One of the 2 orders was wrong. So my husband ate his meal while I waited for the kitchen to fix what I had ordered. We were comped for the one order. They were very apologetic.

We were off of a cruise ship having finished a tour and just dropped in for lunch. We had great lobster chowder and seafood salads. The place was delightful overlooking the main street. The service was excellent.
