The owners of Bill’s Seafood House carry on a 30-year tradition of grilling, frying, and broiling the freshest slabs of seafaring comestibles. Between sea shanties and attempts to ferment tartar sauce into rum, peruse the menu of ocean-born delights to harpoon a starter, such as a bowl of crab soup ($5.49) or a fresh oyster cocktail ($8.99). Then, tongue dive into succulent morsels of tender blackened tuna ($15.99) or two crab cakes ($14.99). The deluxe large seafood platter features fried niblets of shrimp, flounder, clam strips, and stuffed crab joining forces to sate eclectic palates and gossip about Poseidon’s inability to program his VCR ($17.99).

Alight upon savory curry dishes such as the chicken tikka masala ($8.99) or the palak and paneer, laden with spinach and fried cheese ($7.99). Both are served with a choice of naan or rice.
From the placid repose of its waterfront perch, River’s Inn sates diners with a traditional menu of seafood-centric repasts and a burger-anchored spread of substantive sandwiches. Shareable sea fare occupies hungry hands with underwater finger foods such as the crispy calamari ($9) or the Sarah Creek fire-roasted oysters, which arrive hand-shucked and are prepared with parmesan and romano cheeses ($9.95). The Black & Bleu burger arrives on a toasted potato roll blanketed in lettuce, tomato, and red onion ($8.95), and the Sarah Creek burger pairs Hereford beef with warm lump crab meat ($10.95). Main events, such as the grilled or blackened ahi tuna ($16.95) and the veggie-flanked chicken marsala ($14.95), are chewable search parties for jaded taste buds lost to boredom after relying on flavorless sustenance like unprocessed flour or ice-cube sandwiches.
