Everywhere you turn there’s another tasty choice waiting for you.

You can go big with a private dinner in a lighthouse, watch a sunset on Plum Island while enjoying cocktails and drunken clams, or go casual with takeout on the boardwalk or beach. Have a meal as rich as our history, or as healthy as our green initiatives. In fact, many chefs source ingredients from nearby farms and fish co-ops for the freshest local flavor.
