    Lobster Dock
    Mitch & Dawn have specnt over 10 years making the Lobster Dock the best Seafood Restaruant in the Harbor, and it shows. YOU are their number 1 priority as soon as you step up to order. Great menu, no pretense and a superb view from the east side of the harbor.

    This is our local, here in the harbor. Everybody in town knows Ralph & Elena, they have a massive menu year-round and a very cool outdoor dining area. Consistantly delicious, great staff, family-oriented.

    Mine Oyster
    Located on Pier 1, the ground floor is going to be the Raw Bar, where you can have a beer with your oysters and chat with the Shucker to boot. Upstairs is twice the size of the downstairs, and has a dance floor and will be a “Night Club” in the true sense of the word.
    The menu includes Oysters Moscow, Oysters Ginger, Oysters Granita, Oysters Rockefeller, Oysters Mexican, Oysters Roman, Oysters Spanish, Oysters Parmesan, Oysters Fire & Ice, Oysters Blue Cheese & Bacon. They will have them steamed in wine, along with Little Necks, Mussels, Snow & King Crab and, of course, Lobster.

    Cabbage Island Clambake
    A Classic! The price includes a trip on the Bennie Alice that ends up on, you guessed it, Cabbage Island, where kids are tending coals and throwing seaweed on top of lobsters, steamers, potatoes and corn. Cover it with a canvas, let steam until done and you are in heaven. Great experience.

    Robinson's Wharf
    You have to take a short drive to Southport Island, but the food and view is worth it. Also a fish market, you see the fishermen come by all day dropping off their catch. Has a great view of Decker's Cove. Try the Lobster, Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato club.

  • Fine Dining
    The Boathouse Bistro
    Karin, originally from Austria, learned her craft in Spain and has developed an extraordinary Tapas-style menu with both local ingredients and a Euro feel. Top deck is THE place to have a blueberry Sangria and soak up the Vitamin D.

    Ports of Italy
    Sante Calandri and his staff have elevated Italian Dining to an art form with their Milan-inspired menu. Think Veal Piccatta instead of Veal Parmesan, and there is no lasagne here! Great wine list, eat inside or out. A treat.

    The Thistle Inn
    Max and his right-hand Chef Michael have put together a very cool menu that can be enjoyed inside the rustic facility or outside under their majestic trees. Warm & mild? Definitely eat outside and you'll swear you were back in Europe.

    Red Cup Coffee House
    Paul & Wendy, with both the Blue Moon and Cafe at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens under their belt, have recently opened up this gem just in time for the 2012 season. Fresh sandwiches, homemade soups and chowders, salads, and of course, really, really good Espresso, coffee, teas, cocoas & steamers.

    China by the Sea
    You're on vacation, so you should have what you like, right? Well, I personally like Chinese food and China by the Sea makes fresh, delicious Chinese food that I feel was made just for me. Besides, who doesn't enjoy a drink with an umbrella in it?

    Yes, we even have a Vietnamese restaraunt here in the Harbor. Pad Tai, Pho, Bun Toy. Very good, very fresh and very well priced. They also make great pastry.
