My wife and both had a cup of chowder and split the fried fisherman’s platter. Excellent food and service. Our waitress suggested we limit ourselves to a cup of chowder since it is so fiiling. Good advice on her part.

We were staying on Lewis Wharf and walked past the Sail Loft a few times without going in. I wish we’d tried it sooner. It’s in a handy location. There’s a nice atmosphere, and it overlooks the water. A varied menu including seafood, salads and...More
