Where to Dine
The White Barn InnNoteable
The most formal and probably the most expensive restaurant in the area, we consider the White Barn Inn to be an excellent choice for a very special occasion. Among its accolades are AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Five Star ratings. Expect impressively attentive service and a four-course prix fixe meal. Reservations are a must, as are jackets for gentlemen, and we highly recommend an advance discussion of any dietary restrictions.
Upscale but not overly formal, Pier 77 has a nice atmosphere for dinner. It boasts panoramic ocean views and good choices for seafood lovers and everyone else. Because the menu is shared with its casual sister restaurant, The Ramp, you can order a burger while you enjoy Pier 77's polished vibe and piano player every night in season.
On the Marsh Bistro
On the Marsh is a white tablecloth establishment with a creative atmosphere. We especially love it for special occasions and holidays, or for their High Wine and Prix-Fixe Dinner offerings. This restaurant has been known to thoroughly pamper our pregnant guests, and we can tell you that Table 16 is especially romantic.
A fav of the Captain Fairfield Inn management team, this happening place is super-close to the inn and delivers on all fronts -- great cocktails, food and atmosphere. Bandaloop describes its cuisine as "organically grown local food with global flavors." We think that's spot-on.
About a ten minute drive from Captain Fairfield Inn, 50 Local is one of our top choices for an elevated, yet casual dinner. The restaurant sources almost exclusively from local farms. We've found each dish, cocktail, and dessert on their ever-changing seasonal menu to be impeccable. Don't miss the $2 Tapas every Tuesday night.
