Whether you head out on a fishing charter and catch your own or rely on the local fishermen to reel it in, there's a delicious meal waiting for you nearby. We'll let you in on our favorite spots – some well-known and others a well-kept secret… until now:
The Fisherman's Seafood Market is the first stop for your fresh fish and seafood needs. They also prepare a choice menu including fish ‘n chips, crab dishes, fish tacos and their award-winning clam chowder. You'll find the market right on the docks across from the Visitor Center.
