Freshly-prepared, inspired cuisine – complemented by friendly, attentive service.

Chef Mark Gottwald's signature American Brasserie-style cuisine is freshly prepared on the premises using local ingredients whenever possible. Many of the evening's creations are literally "boat to table" – caught by local fishermen, members of our staff or Chef Mark himself.
Located in an historic whaling captain's mansion built in 1831, the dining room and lounge are below street level and have an updated colonial atmosphere. It's the perfect choice for an evening out with friends, or for a more romantic experience in one of restaurant's cozy alcoves.
Open May to mid-October.
Reservations are highly recommended.
Call 508-228-0040 or book online.
