It offers a descent menu with good food. Average prices if you don't want to pay much. Not very fancy but again good choice around.

Beautiful rest, incredible view and good food. Cod and fries with the house made tarter sauce was very good. The chowder wasn’t great but it was good. Server was busy but attentive. We will go again.
