Popular on-site restaurant celebrates regional heritage with great food, wine, company
You know a restaurant is good when it’s a hit with locals and tourists alike, and that’s the case at The Shipwright’s Daughter, the popular on-site restaurant at The Whaler’s Inn. With daily changes to its inspired menu there's always something new to try, from crispy fried oysters to rhubarb gazpacho or dry-aged local bluefish. Recognized as a James Beard “Smart Catch” Committed Restaurant, the restaurant honors New England’s seafood heritage with sustainably-caught fish creatively presented. The inn also serves breakfast and weekend brunch, happy hour with select wines, cocktails, draft beer and snacks. Its wine list, celebrating small farmers and producers, has earned it the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence in 2022.
