The mussels were very good and so was the broth. The chicken and brie sandwich was overflowing. We sat outside in the shade with a beautiful view of the water.

Beautiful view, polite staff and amazing food. At first sight of the menu I was unsure if I would like this restaurant, it had a plenty good selection but I myself do not like either mushrooms or seafood and it had a majority of both....More

We had the Chef's Daily Seafood Tasting, with three items, including a sauteed shrimp (delicious), and crab cake (ordinary) and it cost $26. Have to say this is way too high for what we were served. We had one of the evening specials recommended by...More

My Place by the Sea is at the end of Bearskin Neck in a small house. We were there during the off season so the only open portion was the small inside dining room. They have more outside patios in better weather. We didn't have...More

As I remember all of the entrees feature seafood. I would venture a guess that they would make a wonderful salad if asked. They are very hospitable.
I am looking for a place to have an Anniversary Dinner with 20-25 guests next May (2016). Is this something you can do?
