The Thistle Inn

A local institution, the Thistle Inn is today better than ever. The rustic, coastal ambiance is comfortable, and the updated menu includes expertly prepared dishes such as scallops with risotto and grilled Caesar salad. The historic inn houses a cozy pub with a lighter menu, and the big patio, shaded by trees strung with lights, is everyone’s favorite spot in warmer weather.
