Hot hot and delicious clam chowder with hot bread to go. Take a 2 minute drive and enjoy it watching the waves at Sporthaven Beach which has ample parking. Always a friendly staff.

It was a cold rainy day, but we decided on a milkshake anyway - soooooo good! We also had the fish and chips, really good but way too much food.

Conveniently located near the ferry terminal and open early for breakfast too. Average quality food...generally very good staff and moderate prices

I would recommend calling them and letting them know. They may not be aware. I do know they open very early as the people that are catching the red eye or very early morning ferry would have somewhere to eat. I am not sure... More
