Nates is very close to Captains Bounty and always our "go-to" restaurant for breakfast!! Food is excellent, space is cozy so you may have to wait on the weekends, but it is well worth it!!!

Nate's was recommended by Janine at Captain's Bounty and she was not wrong. This IS the place for breakfast. I had the lobster egg Benedict 2 mornings in a row & would have had it a 3rd, but we were not there 3 mornings. Small...More

There is a nice beach just across the street from the restaurant with some parallel parking spots. However there are no benches or picnic tables on the beach. You could call Nates and ask what to do.
