  • The Sand Crab Tavern
    Though he didn't work in the restaurant industry, the very first time Rick Covert set foot in The Sand Crab Tavern—established in 1988—he knew that one day it would be his. Some 22 years later, he finally bought it, and though he's made a couple of changes, Rick has maintained the restaurant’s defining traits. A primary change was the addition of Rick's Black Pearl, a twice-weekly spread of raw oysters on the half-shell. What he hasn't changed, though, have been some of the faces customers have gotten to know before he took the helm: cook Lucy has been boiling crawfish at the tavern for more than 15 years, and server Kim has been doting on guests in the lantern-lit space for more than 19 years. Perhaps almost as important as The Sand Crab’s food and faces are its surrounds. Dangling in the net that’s suspended from the ceiling, like delicious constellations hover starfish, shells, and realistic crabs. And, mimicking the barnacle-coated sides of a whale, the walls are encrusted with sepia-toned photos, nautical memorabilia, and navy patches. Wooden booths host enough dunking of Maine lobsters and king crabs into melted butter to be considered basketball courts. The Sand Crab Tavern hosts live blues music during Sunday brunch, but that's not the only time musicians visit. They're a common sight and sound in the warmly lit dining room, where guests can fill their ears while grabbing frosty bottles of beer sourced from local microbreweries.

  • Dominic's
    Dominic's fresh, authentic Italian cuisine, served at lunch and dinner, pairs with a countryside wall mural, vines creeping down grotto-like archways, and red-and-white-checkered table cloths for a charming dining experience. For lunch, diners can partake in traditional plates, such as cheese ravioli ($8.75) and Ma's breaded chicken breast ($9.95), share a 12-inch pepperoni pizza pie ($9.95), or two-hand a classic muffaletta piled with ham, salami, cheese, and garnish galore ($8.99 for a whole sandwich).
