Close- less than 5 minutes by car- you will find this cute fish and chip restaurant that serves seafood, burgers, pizza and other entrees as well as a liquor license. On cooler days eat inside with an ocean view, but its even better in the summer to sit outside on the deck overlooking the ocean. Its a great family place!
