A great quick stop for lunch! The walk up window is easy with lots of options. We had the swordfish and crab cake sandwiches with fries and everything was great. The porch is around back with a great view of the boats coming and going.

Chowder and a burger. BYOB. Soft serve ice cream after. The best. Sit on the back porch and enjoy one of the best views on the island.

This is a quaint walk-up restaurant where you order at a window, get your food through a back window and can sit on benches and overlook the fishing boats. Lovely small fishing village.

Made a special stop so my husband could get chowder - his absolute favorite. And, as always, it was delicious.
