    Good low key seafood spot. The classic fish and chips is great as are the cod egg rolls when they have them.

    This place is outstanding. On the water. Decent beer selection and yummy bar food. Get the salty dog (a fried hot dog) with a bunch of stuff on it- don't be afraid. Kids meals come w a frisbee.

    A fully loaded salty dog is not something you will be eating on a regular routine, but you should muster up the courage to binge it down at least once, and head home for a quick nap shortly after.
