Snippet
The Lookout Deck has an appropriate name – there is plenty to watch in the busy harbor, from fisherman bringing in their catch, to playful seals, to entertaining “coon” troupes. It is also host to a number of birds, so “look out” if they’re flocking around you.

Review
The Lookout Deck has an appropriate name – there is plenty to watch in the busy harbor, from fisherman bringing in their catch, to playful seals, to entertaining “coon” troupes.

It is also host to a number of birds, so “look out” if they’re flocking around you.

My lunch consisted of the line fish of the day – cape salmon. The meat was a little tough for my tastes, and there were large dark areas I picked around.

I also tried the orange and chili calamari. It was an unusual dish – make sure you’re a huge fan of calamari before ordering a plate of it.

Service was relatively attentive.

The Lookout Deck is worth trying, albeit more for the atmosphere than the food.
