Our friend who lives on the island took us here. She made a good choice as the food and drinks were great. It is a fun place to dine.

We've dined here several times and never been disappointed. The food & service are both very good along with a terrific view.

We had been here as children in the 1960's and were so pleased the inn is still thriving. My father, two sisters and I celebrated my birthday here with a wonderful dinner. We loved the Penn Cover mussels and the wrapped scallop appetizer. The house...More
