Everything is made to the highest standards with the freshest local and organic ingredients for a true taste of New England.

The authentic yacht club setting and stunning harbor views makes our fine-dining restaurant the perfect place to celebrate any special occasion, while approachable enough for a casual meal out.

Couple at a brewery tasting beer sample

If you’re looking for a place to taste our local potables, there are several distilleries and breweries nearby that we recommend. Wiggly Bridge Distillery produces spirits in local small batches and offers both tours of the facility as well as tastings. Their award-winning bourbon whiskey is sure to please any discerning whiskey fan with its balanced and complex flavor. On Saturdays they also feature live music and craft cocktails made with their own spirits, for a fun night out. In the nearby town of Kittery is another favorite place to grab a drink, Tributary Brewing Company. With an excellent selection of beers on tap and a tasting room on-site, it’s a must visit for any fan of great beer.
