This restaurant has been closed for some time. Too bad because it was very good, hopefully someone will take over and re-open it for the 2016 season. Stay tuned.

The first dinner on vacation should always be one of the best on the trip. Last night we ate here and Van Winkle and Son lived up to that ideal. We had the special, salmon with a pesto covering, thin sliced potatoes, sea food chowder....More
