My wife and I are lunch here for the first time. We had bake oysters, steamed clams and baked oysters with country ham. Everything was fresh and delicious. We ate outside and enjoyed the beautiful background. You must try this one!

so much to see, and neat little towns to explore and wineries. But I would not make it a day trip, do at least one night stay.
