Red Sails Inn Restaurant Review

: This seafood restaurant and watering hole has been around since 1957. The cooking can be uneven, but we usually enjoy the catch of the day, the deep-fried shellfish and the seafood salads, served in generous portions. Burgers and predictable sandwiches fill out the lunch menu. Hearty all-American breakfasts, like tomato and avocado Benedict or hotcakes piled high, draw many of the nearby boating enthusiasts. These old --- and not so old --- salts give the place plenty of color, as do the vistas of boats bobbing on the water. The dinner menu reflects the land and sea with its raw bar items, steaks and fresh fish. There are comfort foods like meatloaf and country fried steak and mashed potatoes, too. The bar, with its giant swordfish and nautical motifs, is a vortex of seafaring chatter.
