My husband and I enjoy Fords Fish Shack! Great food, fun atmosphere and usually quite busy. Try their Canadian PEI Oysters, they are the best!😉

A hidden gem! Excellent steamer clams. Fresh Salmon and Salmon Bruchetta are not to be missed! Lobster Cobb salad is also a personal favorite.

Easy to get to from our hotel, we had a late lunch/early dinner which was smart since it was St. Patrick's Day and a Friday to boot. Based on the... More

Wife and daughter had the lobster and I had my favorite, blackened soft shell crab, which is hard to come by. The only thing missing was the she-crab soup with its side of sherry, which... More
