Islesford Dock Restaurant

Top choice American

in Cranberry Isles

This beautifully sited spot on Little Cranberry Island makes an impressive pledge: 'Dock's commitment to our customers is to serve lobster taken from the water and cooked the day you eat it.' There's impressive variety here beyond lobster, including mussels in white wine, Glidden Point oysters, fish and chips, and spaghetti (squash) with vegan meatballs, plus great desserts.

Be sure to reserve ahead. If you're dining by night, be aware that Beal & Bunker runs a night service from June to early October on Friday and Saturday nights (and from Tuesday to Sunday in July and August). Call to confirm times. If you miss the boat back, you'll have to phone Delight Water Taxi for a private lift (upwards of $130).
