Dining and Nightlife

In an old rail­car, this bar­be­cue joint has per­son­al­i­ty and serves good Q”. They do break­fast in addi­tion to lunch. The serv­ings are big, the qual­i­ty is great — but the seat­ing is lim­it­ed (it’s in a rail­car after all). On a nice day you can sit at tables out­side, but if it’s rainy, you might want to get it to go. Their pulled pork is excel­lent, but it’s all qual­i­ty. Try the eggs bene­dict with crab for break­fast, or the hash.

This is a great spot to grab break­fast or lunch before a day on the water. Or, if you aren’t head­ing out, enjoy a bite over­look­ing the har­bor. There’s lim­it­ed seat­ing, but it’s easy enough to get a table except at the lunch rush. It’s a stan­dard deli, order, grab a num­ber and take a seat. The cin­na­mon rolls are big and good, and the break­fast bur­ri­tos are good too.

Over­look­ing the har­bor, ocean and moun­tains, Ray’s is a local insti­tu­tion for seafood din­ners. It’s pop­u­lar with both fish­er­men and tourists, who want a good meal with a great view. And since the fish­ing boats unload right there on the dock, the seafood could­n’t be fresh­er. They serve hal­ibut cheeks, red snap­per, cod and salmon. It’s good seafood, cooked well, but the sides are aver­age. The bar can get loud and crowd­ed, but the din­ing area is…  ...more

Qual­i­ty seafood din­ners with great views of the water (sit on the sec­ond floor if you can). It’s a toss-up between Ray’s and here, but there’s a slight­ly more diverse menu here. Bet­ter sal­ads and sides. It’s more casu­al too.
