“local watering hole”

Equal parts tourist magnet and local watering hole. Sometimes places that look too good to be true tmn out to be, surprisingly, just that good The Barnacle, off-season, is one of those places. Its your archetypal clam shack basking like a seal on a precipitous rock, decked out in classic ahoy-matey style, walls hung with sailing doodads and photos of this tiny establishment prevailing against one perfect storm after another. Which is reassuring when you're sitting at your table watching mammoth waves break at the roofline, fi'ozen salt spray crocheted across thewindows where yo1n' children are eagerly pressing their faces. My ten-year-old, Alec, who aspires to be a restaurant critic, rates. The Barnaclesonion rings above those of any other nearby restaurant and in the promised land of the tried clam, this is not trivial praise. Ditto, Id say, for the fried oysters. His dadloves the mussels, served in honey-sweetened broth, and were all addicted to theBarnacle Seafood Platter (everything fi'ied and lots of it). - Julia Glass Gourmet Magazine"

Peu d'espace mais très chaleureux.
La meilleur salade de chou que j'ai mangé!
J'ai hâte d'y retourner :)
