We were in town for a day and had all out meals at this place. Loved the food, staff is friendly and outdoor seating out back on the beach is fantastic! They even had a bonfire outside in the evening.

The Canteen has amazing food! Great lobster rolls, salads, beverages and tons of excellent sides too. Nice staff. Eat inside, or facing the street for great people watching or better yet, sit out back and enjoy the ocean views.
