Had dinner here last nigh. Had the garden salad and pan fried haddock. Salad was very tasty and the fish dinner was really good. Top it off with blueberry pie and vanilla ice cream.

The compass rose is a B and B with a restaurant. The restaurant has a great view over the water and is nicely decorated. We enjoyed lightly breaded pan fried haddock, with mashed potatoes and carrots for our dinner. Followed by fresh baked fruit pie.
