As the name suggests Straight Wharf is located at the top of the wharf in the pedestrian rotary. The restaurant is comprised of two very distinct areas with the right side of the restaurant a more casual spot with a small porch and the left side a more formal dining area. The weathered shingled exterior of the restaurant is a... More

I cannot say enough great things about this restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and the restaurant is amazing. The decor is all clean and coastal and the staff is excellent. The food was by far some of the best I have had. Every mouthful was a savory delicious bite that I enjoyed immensely. The cocktails were spot on and... More

We all enjoyed our dining experience, the only disappointment was that they only had one bottle of the wine we liked, and the recommended alternative was not very impressive. The wait staff was fabulous: well informed, attentive, and fun. Ask for a table on the terrace when you make your reservation.

Casual/Fancy with interesting food. Appetizers especially interesting. There's a lot of emphasis on local food, which verges on the pretentious without slipping over the line. It's definitely expensive but worth it for a special dinner. The sommelier is very professional and didn't make us feel bad when we ordered one of the cheapest bottles on the menu ($48 btw). One...

We ate at Straight Wharf - bar area - not main dining room. Room was underlit, hard to see our food but, food was exceptional. Had to endure dining with small babies crying - really? Our waitress could have been better trained... our appetisers arrived before our cocktails...and, how hard should it be to get a glass of ice? Again,... More

I travelled solo and, as such, did not make restaurant reservations but chose to take my chances as a walk-in. I ate here the first night of my visit and the hostess and waitstaff were so friendly and accommodating. The food (chicken over a brick) was absolutely delicious. I chose to dine here my last night as well, and benefitted... More

Some of the best oysters I have had. Had no idea where to eat since we were on a bus tour. Our entire party was happy with their entrees. EVEN the burgers were good. I would highly recommend.

We were a party of 9 without a reservation. But we were there early enough to get a table outside. We thought we'd just have some drinks and a few light bites but everything was so good we kept ordering more food. Everything seemed to be prepared with great care. The presentation of the food was beautiful and the flavors... More

We ate outdoors on a beautiful evening and enjoyed cocktails before dinner while taking in the beautiful view of the wharf and harbor. My husband had the scallop entree and they may have been the best scallops we ever tasted. I had the lobster clambake, which included, among other things, lobster tail, removed from the shell, a corn purée, clams,... More

This has been one of our favorite places, particularly the patio...there's nothing like good food in a great spot on a balmy summer evening. We've been here many, many times over the years but the service has never really been at the same level as either the food....or the prices. Having come here so many times, I can no longer... More
