Be warned, it's nothing fancy but judging by our fellow customers, it's where the locals go. You sit outside but they started a fire when someone asked. Low key but yummy.

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor decided to go to Herons. This was not a good choice. We found the food very expensive for what it was. For instance - the seafood pasta had 2 prawns and one other peice of indistinguishable seafood. The waitress...More

The deck right on the water is a great place to watch the boats go in and out. $16 for a bottle of decent house Pinot Noir. Excellent chowder and for entrees we had clam linguine (the most clams I have ever had when ordering...More

We went to Heron's for a casual dinner near the water. They have picnic tables with plastic lawn chairs, but the view is nice. The waitress offered us both the dinner and lunch menus to select from. I had the grilled cod tacos and they...More

We had a dinner of appetizer. Their peel and eat shrimp are exceptional. His fried oysters are the best I've EVER eaten. There is not a drop of oil on them. Next, I get the oyster po'boy. You must try their coleslaw. Amazing!

Went for an early dinner to sit on the harbor. Nice place to sit for drinks. Food was ok. Chef needs to be a little more inspired. All edible, but certainly not remarkable. And a little pricey for what you get.

First off, my husband and I have been to this restaurant before and had a good experience (over a year ago), however, on our recent visit this was one of our worst dining experiences ever. I was looking forward to a good seafood dinner and...More

Had dinner at Heron's - food was very good. Understaffed, but the owner or manager (?) did his best to accommodate us. Picnic tables were a bit dirty for eating outside. Nice view of the setting sun. Minimal surrounds.
