On a dock near the Isle au Haut ferry and attached to a general store, this is family dining: broiled and fried fresh fish, plus some creative uses of lobsters (try the linguini). There’s also a wine list and a choice of pastas. This is a local-eats place, lively and boisterous, usually as crowded as it is unpretentious. Try ordering a bowl of the lobster stew, brimming with chunks; travelers have been known to find reasons to linger in Stonington longer just to indulge in a second bowl. Dessert selections, which include such local specialties as berry pie and shortcake, are extensive and traditional New England–style.
